Amari Cheatom, actor

Theater critic Charles Isherwood in The New York Times (review of Zooman and the Sign, March 25, 2009) describes Amari Cheatom as “vibrant,” a “coldly charismatic murderer [who] provides a sinister but captivating force.” In a review of the same play for Curtain Up, Paulanne Simmons writes that “the cement that holds this play together is the riveting performance of Amari Cheatom.” Amari appeared in Night Catches Us (2010), played Roy in Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-nominated film Django Unchained (2012), and made his debut as a leading actor in Newlyweeds (2013).
