I have no problem telling people I have a great stunt double. I’m not that guy who’s like, ‘I do all my own stunts.’ Like, no, no, no – it’s make-believe, and I’m not in the mood to die. I’m not in the mood to get hurt. I have a wife and kids!

When you’re playing a superhero, you’re almost playing two different people. I separate when I’m playing Jefferson Pierce and the days when I’m playing Black Lightning.

A lot of times, people believe that until you’re a certain-list actor, you say yes to everything; you’re not allowed to say no. But early on, something went off in me, and if something didn’t ring true for a myriad of reasons, I would say no and was fortunate enough to have people around me that were OK with that.

I come from theater, so I’m used to the hierarchy of an actor is just on the ladder, and above that is a director, and above that is a producer, and above that is a writer. But on a television show or film, the whole call sheet thing and being No. 1 on a call sheet, people look to you and almost expect you to exercise this power for good or bad.
