Cole’s breakthrough came in 2010 when he cast in the BBC teen drama The Cut (2009) as Noah Achebe.
The real star of the show, however, is his lawyer, Franklin Roberts, played by Courtney B. Vance.
A graduate of Yale Drama school, the Tony and Emmy award-winning actor has distinguished himself in a long career, most notably for for his stunning portrayal of Johnnie Cochran in the series The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.
As always, Vance is terrific.
This time around he plays a public defender fighting for social justice, a role he has played in various guises throughout his career.
