Episode Info:

Actor Jerod Haynes discusses a sign he received that was clear as day and also one that led him to an old email that served as confirmation he was on the right path.  Also discussed: the effects of PTSD and the benefits of therapy; how he reconciled conflicting feelings about playing a police officer and how he brought his own experiences to the role; how fatherhood can be a complicated relationship and a two-way street.  Jerod Haynes played police officer Ben Jones on NBC's The Village. He also co-wrote and co-produced Blueprint, a film about racial injustice and coping with the aftermath of tragedy. He has also appeared in the Sundance film Southside With You, as well as on stage in Native Son for which he won The Jeff Award for his performance as Bigger Thomas. His short film about fatherhood will be released soon. The companion 7 minute documentary film can be viewed here.  You can follow Jerod Haynes on Instagram @JerodJHaynes and on Twitter @MrJerodHaynes.  Learn more about Blueprint here.
