Since then he has appeared in many national commercials, a guest-starring role on the CBS show “Cold Case”, and two feature films, including Fox Searchlight’s new independent drama, “Ball Don’t Lie.” The casting process to find the leading role of Darrell spanned over six months and hundreds of talented young actors.
