‘S.W.A.T.’ / SoA star Kenny Johnson talks about dyslexia, arm wrestling and acting (Episode 594)
This episode is another collaboration with the non profit Brent Sopel Foundation, part of the “You Are Not Alone Series.” Brent’s a retired professional hockey player. As a defenseman, he played professional hockey in the NHL, KHL, and AHL. In 2010, he won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks. Brent Sopel is dyslexic and founder of the Brent Sopel Foundation. Though known for playing professional hockey, Brent would like his legacy to be that he did everything within his power to assist dyslexic children everywhere.
In this episode, we talk with the engaging Kenny Johnson, a fantastic character actor who you can currently see as Officer Dominique Luca on S.W.A.T. He’s also been on the Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Bates Motel and tons of other shows and films. He’s a fascinating guy, and the chat covers everything from dyslexia to his adventures on the pro arm wrestling circuit (seriously).
