Most known for his role as Dr. Dre in Straight Outta Compton, Corey Hawkins plays Eric Carter on FOX’s new hit series, 24 Legacy.

He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about replacing the legendary Kiefer Sutherland in the role and reveals if a black man can indeed save the world.

“We were shooting the new King Kong in Vietnam and the producers of 24 saw Compton, they contacted me and said I was the only person they sent the script to and they hoped I liked it. I did and they offered me the role. Which is rare. Especially at this point in my career,” Hawkins said.

24 Legacy airs on FOX at 8p/7p CST. Click the link below to hear the entire interview.
