“I didn’t feel a peace about it,” T’Juan said. “I was flattered, but … I don’t think the role would’ve been a good fit for me in this season.”
T’Juan, who is also a youth pastor at Wayman Chapel AME Church in Jacksonville, Fla., has previously acted on the casts for a pilot of a local Houston network TV sitcom called As for Me & My House.
Deadline reported that Straight Outta Compton is expected to make $55-60 million this weekend, but T’Juan said he has no regrets.
“I’m sure it probably would’ve benefited me temporarily and personally, but I know my purpose is much bigger than me, therefore I’m at peace with my position and my decision.”
