When many see actor Michael Wright in person, he says people try to quote lines from some of their favorite characters. Michael Wright is best known for his role as Eddie Kane, Jr. in the 1991 Robert Townsend film The Five Heartbeats. Wright has been seen on the small screen as well in a number of shows including the 1983 NBC science fiction miniseries V, “Miami Vice”, and on the 1997 HBO series Oz as Omar White.
Many of Wrights characters have been burdened with some type of substance abuse. His ability to play these characters with pinpoint accuracy is sometimes uncanny. But is that art imitating life or vice versa?
