You may have gotten your first introduction to Keith when you saw him as Dr. Dre’s little brother, Tyree Clayton, in the 2015 biopic film, Straight Outta Compton, or as Theo in MTV’s Faking It. Born and raised in Sacramento, he has become one of Hollywood’s most notable actors starring in multiple commercial campaigns, TV shows and films. In 2013, he made his acting debut in the film, House Party: Tonight’s The Night. Since then, Powers has been seen in quite a few fan favorites, such as Freeform’s Recovery Road, AMC’s The Fear of The Walking Dead, and Sin City Saints.
His latest victory was snagging one of the leading roles, as New Edition member, Ronnie DeVoe, in the 2017 three-part miniseries, The New Edition Story, that premiered on BET in January.
Guests spent a special evening with Keith as he as he reflected on filming The New Edition Story, what it’s like to be an African-American male in the industry, and his 2017 projects.
