About this Episode

Black actors are blowin’ up, right? It’s the golden age of black movie stars, right? Or are we about to witness yet another example of the Denzel Effect? Join us for the latest episode of Snobs On Film as we invite actor Omar Dorsey to help us answer an intriguing question: Why can there be only one black megastar in Hollywood at a time? We take a look at the rise of Michael B. Jordan and wonder if he’s the new epitome of a lonely pedestal. Next: things get even wilder when the Snobs play Black Roulette—a new segment where we take a black actor and the role they played in one performance, and insert them into a distinctly white film or TV show.
