Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Talks Heavy Duty Roles in G.I. Joe & Monk

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. You may have a little difficulty saying this Emmy Award winning actor's name, but you definitely have no problems recognizing his face. For millions of fans of HBO's "Oz" he is the trouble making prisoner "Adebisi". And for millions of others he is the enigmatic "Mr. Ecko" on ABC's "Lost".

In this Hollywood As I Live & Work EXCLUSIVE, Adewale portrays himself as he takes a break from his busy schedule to talk with me about his exciting new role in the highly anticipated action flick "G.I. Joe" and his return to the small screen. Roll this beautiful Adewale footage!


My little blunder was definitely an ice breaker. Some celebs would not have been so forgiving. But "Triple A" made it fun out in the Hollywood sun!

So again, mark your calendars or set your smart phones for AUGUST 7th. Adewale hits the big and small screens that day in "G.I. Joe" and the season premiere of USA's "Monk". And in the meantime, follow him on Twitter @TheOneTripleA to get updates on what's going on in his world.

Great interview! It seemed super cordial! When you made your faux pas, I was like, when was he on The Wire?!? Nice recovery, though! :)

I loved the interview. I've been a fan of his since "Oz." That's the show you were thinking of, I'm sure. I am so jealous of you. Can I be your helper if you interview him again? For real.

Great interview. It's so nice to see a lighter side of him. Images from Oz and Get Rich Die Trying are very deceiving. and if my memory is correct.. did he model years ago? Well I'm sure I'm speaking for many movie and tv junkies when I say... we want to see more of Adewale! Can't wait for GI Joe.... he's the only reason I'm buying a ticket! ~mo~
