Marcus Scribner: How He Beat Out Anthony Anderson's Own Son for the Role
On the December 10, 2014 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor Marcus Scribner ("Andre Johnson, Jr.") told Jimmy Kimmel how he was sure he hadn't gotten the role of Anthony Anderson's oldest son on black-ish because there was a guy at the audition who looked just like Anthony. Sure enough, it was Anthony's son trying out for the same part, but despite the real-life family connection, Marcus landed the part.
Jimmy then quizzed Marcus on playing the clarinet, since that's the same instrument Jimmy plays. They then ranked the instruments in terms of coolness with -- sorry flautists -- flutes coming in dead last.
