An actor with such remarkable range that he has been typecast as both a troubled athlete and an intelligent doctor, Epps is one of the most successful African-American actors of his generation. "I don't feel like I'm carrying the torch for anyone," he says, "but at the same time I recognize the relevance of a black face on television because when I grew up, there weren't that many black faces on television." Epps recently formed his own production company, Brooklyn Works Films, through which he hopes to expand into writing, directing and producing. Epps sets no limits for himself when imagining the future direction of his career, and has even suggested that he could become President of the United States. "If Ronald Reagan can do it," he says, "I know I can."
