“Simply honoured to have been a part of the team to meet Michelle Obama & Dr Jill Biden today to do a PSA for Joining Forces, aiding army vets and bringing awareness. Sony, NBC & Gabe Sachs & everybody did a phenomenal job organising this as it’s a surreal experience & a major operation doing something of this magnitude. Was privileged to be alongside Robert Bailey Jr. Jill Flint & Eriq La Salle representing The Night Shift & the rest of our cast and crew.
