Roland Martin talks to actor Leon about his legendary career, his band Leon And The Peoples and the two new television and film projects.

“The Five Heartbeats…it’s amazing the life it has. AOL Voices did a poll five years ago of the top 25 African American films and The Five Heartbeats was number one and The Color Purple was number two. I’ve been blessed to be part of so many story lines other than that one. Out of the 25 I starred in five of them.”
