Deadline reports, stand-up comedian/spoken word motivational artist, Spoken Reasons has taken a leap from YouTube to the big screen! Reasons has been added to the cast of The Heat. The online comedy star joins Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in the Paul Feig-directed film.
All the particulars haven’t been ‘ironed-out’ but Reasons will play a lead character called “Terrell Rojas.” The Heat is the feature film debut for the 23-year old Bradenton, FL native, whose real name is John Baker. However, it is far from his first time in front of the camera. Since the 2008, Reasons has been producing, directing, writing and starring in skits and music videos on his own YouTube channel. Spoken Reasons has garnered more than 125 million views online and has more than 500,000 subscribers!
Entertainment was never in his plans, but when comedian Lil Duval and R&B singer Trey Songz viewed his videos, everything changed!
- His motto: 3 keys to Success: Faith, Consistency & Hard Work! #FCHW
- His mantra: “Just remember, I ain’t sh-t…yet!”
