Television Actor Wesley Jonathan Unscripted

By on August 25, 2012

Actor, Wesley Jonathan is no stranger to television sitcom and film roles. The California native known for his skating abilities in the 2005 Roll Bounce also starred in recent films, Dysfunctional Friends and Speed Dating.

As co-star in TV Land’s, The Soul Man, he plays ‘Stamps’ brother to comedic actor, Cedric the Entertainer. The all-black cast also includes funny lady, Niecy Nash. Jonathan says he’s “happy to see scripted television making its way back.”

Talking about his role, Wesley says, “My character Stamps is a young man who lives with his father, really has no responsibilities, but dresses fly, always lookin’ for that angle to make something happen. He’s a really fun character.”

Barely into his 30’s, Wesley is a bona-fide acting veteran with three television sitcoms under his belt. Who could forget ‘Jamal Grant’ on the NBC series City Guys or his role as ‘Gary Thorpe’ on the defunct WB sitcom, What I like About You?

Understanding how few and far between prime industry roles come around, Wesley says he enjoys so much about his industry and that if he wasn’t acting, he’d be doing something pretty close. “I would definitely be doing something related to the entertainment field. I love it. Who knows maybe a race car driver, I don’t know.”

In his iconic role as ‘Sweetness’ in the movie Roll Bounce, Wesley says he had “a wonderful experience and was able to complete lot of hard work on the film.” He went on to say that “Mario Van Peebles hired me in my first feature film at 15 years old. He was a kind, cool, and all around great guy. As a Director, I learned a lot. He’s an OG man, nothing but respect.”

Wesley understands the competitive nature of television, especially for black actors and that some are just hungry for a chance. For What I Think About You, “I was the only man of color at network testing,” reinforcing the narrow margin of opportunity. In spite of the competitive nature, Wesley tells aspiring actors, “don’t brown nose!”

Ending our interview, Wesley told Healthy Black Men that how he stays in shape. “I like to swim but I don’t do it to stay fit. I probably should but I don’t. I’ll just say working out—I try to be consistent, muscle confusion exercises, etc. I still struggle with eating right.”
