What’s Adrian Lockett Up To?
Remember Adrian Lockett, the West Alabama native who was recently seen in movies such as "Get Hard" and ? Well, I recently caught up with him to find out what new projects he's working on.
Adrian has been working hard to make his way into stardom. His latest endeavor is a role in a movie called "Once in a Lifetime, Just Go for It," a major independent film, which is a romantic comedy. Adrian was hand-selected by the film's producer and director, who flew him to Los Angeles, where the movie is based.
Before traveling to Los Angeles, Adrian was in Tennessee filming another episode of "Fatal Attraction," in which he plays the lead role of Purnell Thompson. That episode is set to air on March 14. Never one to shy away from small roles, Lockett filmed a commercial for "The Walking Dead," in which he played the role of a survivor.
Probably one of his larger projects was the film "The 5th Wave." Chloe Grace Moretz and Liev Scheiber star in this movie, in which Lockett plays the role of a soldier. This film is set to open in theaters on Jan. 22, 2016.
Now, while all auditions don't always turn into roles, Adrian has been quite fortunate to be booked for work alongside numerous Hollywood A-listers including Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell, and Shia LaBeouf. In "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back," he will work with Tom Cruise as a stunt guy/solder in New Orleans. Lockett says he counts himself as blessed to be among the best and looks forward to learning from Cruise.
Other than these (as if this isn't enough), he's been modeling and continues to push himself into his destiny.
