Breaking Baz: ‘Rustin’ Oscar Nominee Colman Domingo On Breaking Through After 33 Years As A Journeyman Actor, The Art Of The Red Carpet & Talking Diplomacy With President Obama

Deadline's Baz Bamigboye interviews 'Rustin' Oscar nominee Colman Domingo, who says he is "having the time of my life" -- Breaking Baz column

In over three decades of covering award seasons, Domingo’s probably the first time I’ve paid close attention to what a male actor’s worn, aside from the utterly effortless cool displayed by Bill Nighy ( Bridgerton ’s Jonathan Bailey knows how to cut a dash too). And a shout-out must be given to Frank Sinatra, who used to sport a red or orange silk pocket square to give a pop of color to formal attire — a look that yours truly admits to borrowing. Along with Michael, he has a role in Ethan Coen’s Drive-Away Dolls; he’s leading the Chernin Entertainment miniseries The Madness that’s headed for Netflix; there’s a TV drama in the works set in his hometown called West Philly, Baby; and the Nat King Cole biopic that he’ll be starring in and is writing and directing.
