Where Every Woman Has A Voice


Fine Man Friday: Columbus Short

Posted October 5, 2012 by Sister Girl News in Entertainment

A screen performer from his early twenties, Columbus Short began his career as a movie actor with somewhat conventional roles in youth-oriented films, such as the 2006 releases Save the Last Dance 2 and Accepted. He worked his way into more serious and substantial material in the years to follow, however — beginning with the role of Darius onAaron_Sorkin‘s critically praised but short-lived showbiz drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006-2007). Short received critical kudos and added attention for his contribution to the family-oriented ensemble comedy This_Christmas, playing an African-American man who arrives at his family’s home to celebrate the Yuletide holiday — without telling them that he has married a Caucasian woman. Additional assignments included the lead role inQuarantine (2008), directors John_E._Dowdle and Drew_Dowdle‘s remake of the Spanish horror film [REC]; and — on a nostalgic note — an evocation of blues maestro “Little Walter” Jacobs in director Darnell_Martin‘s ambitious homage to the blues in 1950s Chicago,Cadillac_Records (2008). His career continued with Armored, the remake of Death at a Funeral, The Losers and The Girl Is In Trouble. In 2012 he was cast in the TV series Scandal.
