-- When you are from one of the most talented families in the nation it is possible to become very jaded and maybe a bit stand offish; however that is not the case with actor Omar Gooding. Although he has been in the spotlight most of his life, Omar remains down to earth and approachable. Qualities that helped prepare him for his new on screen role as a father. In his new situation comedy, Family Time, he is the patriarch of the Stallworth family. He, along with his wife, played by Angell Conwell are two working class people whose life is completely changed after winning the lottery. Early indications are the show is a hit.
Omar Gooding is no stranger to the small screen, having appeared in more than a dozen TV shows that have included Hanging With Mr Cooper and Smart Guy to Playmakers, Grey’s Anatomy and CSI . On the big screen he has Baby Boy and The Gospel to his credit.
Although he has been absent from the screen for more than 2 years it has not been because of a lack of offers. Knowing how much his fans enjoy his work Omar is careful about the roles he accepts and how he is portrayed.
“It is important that we as actors portray characters that are not just stereotypical. Just like there are thugs and gangsters in our society, there are also loving families and positive images. “Family Time” showcases those positive images”
Family Time debuts on Bounce TV on June 18th and was created by Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show and Martin).
