There’s a new series on NBC called Timeless that follows the story of a criminal who steals a state-of-the-art time machine hell bent on destroying America by changing the past.
Malcolm Barrett (Hurt Locker, Dear White People) talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his role as Rufus Carlin and reveals that the Black Panthers are coming to network television.
On being black man who travels back to Nazi, Germany:
“It’s definitely hard and we definitely address it. It’s fun to see the character going through that. I’m probably the most reluctant time junkie you’re going to meet. I’m a techie, I’m part of the team that helps create the time machine,” Barrett said.
Tiimeless airs on NBC at 10p/9p CST. Click the link above to hear the entire interview.
