Tyler James Williams
Tyler James Williams: who played a youthful Chris Rock on the series “ Everybody Hates Chris ” and grew up to appear on “ The Walking Dead ” and in the indie film “ Dear White People, ” just dropped a mixtape– and it’s enough good.
Generally it’s stylish to ignore actors who decide to flex their musicianship. History has shown the results are most frequently disturbing( looking at you, Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson and the others Johnny Depp called out in a recent interview). But Tyler James Williams doesn’t appear to be taking himself so seriously.
His entry to rapping, at least to my knowledge, happed late last time when he offered a freestyle during an appearance on “ Sway in the Morning. ” suckers challenged him to do more, and he heeded.
Recorded in two weeks, the mixtape, called “ Me, My Brother & A Mic, ” is a sarcastic look at a number of hipsters- hop homilies.
No, his inflow won’t make Drake or Kendrick lose any sleep, but his trouble shouldn’t be slept on.
Over adroitly drafted beats from his youngish actor family, Tyler James Williams, the six- track mixtape dashingly skewers rap views on virility, violence and womanish exploitation.
One track indeed pokes fun at our current preoccupation with the staccato, occasionally incomprehensible inflow of folks similar as Young Thug, Future, etc. It’s a ridiculous, yet essential listen. We ’ll hear to whatever differently he wants to put out.
The Walking Dead has featured too numerous horrible deaths over the times to count but some hit harder than others, and sweet- natured Noah’s demise in the drama’s fifth season has always felt especially cruel.
Noah, a survivor who formed a close fellowship with Beth Greene( Emily Kinney) after she set up him at Grady Memorial Hospital, was on a force run with Glenn Rhee( Steven Yuen) when effects went horribly wrong and he was captured and devoured by trampers, while a devastated Glenn looked on after his attempts to help Noah failed.
It turns out that actor Tyler James Williams, who played Noah, was also devastated by his character’s woeful death, as he has revealed during an interview with Collider that he” collapsed and blabbed” while photographing his final scene.
Explaining that Noah’s death was technically” veritably delicate” to film due to the special goods demanded to portray a graphic perambulator attack, he went on to explain that it was an emotionally draining experience too.
” I have no way really had an experience like that,” Tyler James Williams said.” And it’s one that kind of clicked Steven Yuen and I for, I suppose, life – in the sense of, I have no way been suitable to kill a character and let them die and witness that with them in a veritably traumatic way.”
” We do the scene, and we’ve to do the moment where I get slammed against the glass,” he continued.” And that has to play all the way out because we’d talk and I was like,’ There is no way I can jump and cut into just( a) laugh. This is notoriety’s last guttural death. We’ve to play this whole beat out.’
” And we played the whole beat out. They called cut. And also I just kind of collapsed and blabbed for two twinkles on set.”
He added that disco-star Steven had assured him, saying” He put a hand on my reverse and he just started kind of bruiting in my observance,’ You are letting him go. It’s a beautiful thing. You really gave him a death.’
” And it was a mourning process that came incontinently after we( called cut). Because there is only one take at that. You only get one.”
Tyler James Williams went on to say that he has mugged several death scenes since in other systems but explained that his experience on The Walking Dead has a unique place in his memory.
” That bone was the first one, and it was unique and it was beautiful,” he said.” And it was one of the most edifying moments in my career. And it clicked me with everybody in that room at the time.
” And also, everyone showed up, which was really intriguing. Alanna Masterson, Lauren Cohan, Christian Serratus, they all showed up for the death. nearly as if it was a burial.”
Tyler James Williams added that he’d now jump at the chance to work with anyone who was involved again due to their participated experience and called making Noah’s death scene” emotionally and mentally, unearthly”.
