In the show, which premiered in September and was almost instantly renewed for a second season, the actor plays one of the infamous Flenory brothers.
In October, Da’Vinchi made his Broadway debut, marking another career milestone for him. He starred alongside Luke James, Keith David, Dyllón Burnside, Bryan Terrell Clark, Forrest McClendon, and Tristan “Mack” Wilds in the Keenan Scott II production Thoughts of a Colored Man as part of the ensemble.
Other television appearances include recurring roles on the CW’s All-American and Freeform’s Grown-ish. Da’Vinchi appeared in the Warner Bros. 2020 film The Way Back, starring Ben Affleck, as part of the ensemble cast. Only three years ago, he made his acting debut in an episode of Netflix’s Marvel series Jessica Jones.
Da’Vinchi’s signing is yet another emerging star in APA’s growing talent division, which is bringing fresh and veteran rappers and vocalists into the spotlight.
50 Cent, who has built a sizable television empire, and BMF star Demtrius “Lil Meech” Flenory are already represented by the agency. Mary J. Blige, 2 Chainz, and Tyrese Gibson are among the reps on the roster.
