BGN Interview: Lakeith Stanfield, star of “CROWN HEIGHTS”

BGN’s Leo Faierman talks with star of “CROWN HEIGHTS” Lakeith Stanfield about his approach to acting and his role in “Crown Heights”.

In the spring of 1980, a teenager is gunned down on the streets of Flatbush, Brooklyn. The police pressure a child witness to identify a suspect. As a result, Colin Warner, an 18-year-old kid from nearby Crown Heights, is wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Colin’s childhood friend Carl ‘KC’ King devotes his life to fighting for Colin’s freedom. He works on appeals, takes loans for lawyer fees and becomes a legal courier to learn the court system. This incredible true story is adapted from the acclaimed This American Life segment by writer/director Matt Ruskin, with Lakeith Stanfield playing Colin Warner and Nnamdi Asomugha as Carl King.
