MoCo Native Michael Ealy Joins Cast of ‘Bel-Air’

Michael Ealy has made a splash in his recurring role on ‘Bel Air’, the reimagined version of popular 90s sitcoms ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ which started Will Smith. The actor plays the role of Reid Broderick starting episode 5– a gallery owner who is known for discovering artists, who’s helping Aunt Viv get back into painting.

The show has been one of the most talked about since it debuted earlier this year, and Ealy’s character could play a role in causing some trouble. Michael Ealy, then known as Michael Brown, graduated from Springbrook High School and grew up in Silver Spring (later attending the University of Maryland).

The former Blue Devil had his breakout role in Barbershop, and later starred in 2 Fast 2 Furious, About Last Night, Think Like a Man 1 and 2, The Perfect Guy, and much more.

New episodes of Bel-Air are released on Peacock, NBC’s streaming network, at 5:01 a.m. ET on Thursdays.
