Tyler James Williams has been the face of ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ for awhile now but don’t let that role fool you. He also showed up on ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders’ which pretty much put an end to any possible limitations standing in his acting career, letting people know he was not to be pigeonholed or typecast at any point – the talent is there.

As he put it, “Take only the jobs you want. Once you start taking any job, your career is over.” That is the case with his new series ‘RePlay‘ that will digitally air 12-weeks beginning April 20th through the Go 90 app. A series which he almost didn’t get to as he reached a bit of a crossroads in his career that led to creating another platform for those looking to get their creative voice out there, commendable to be done at such a young age and already thinking about pushing others forward. Most wait until they’re “fully established” to extend that same helping hand but one thing you’ll learn during the interview is that Tyler James Williams is not your typical actor. From saving habits to hip hop views, dude is well rounded.

Check it out above.
