Our new feature asks celebrities what’s on their mind and between their bread.

RJ Cyler’s dreams are now becoming a reality. Back in 2013, Cyler made his debut in Second Chances, a camp Hollywood film.

He’ll next appear on HBO’s Vice Principals, a comedy series starring Danny McBride. Cyler is just getting started.
