Elijah Kelley

  1. Tristan Wilds, Red Tails, 2011.    The all-powerful George Lucas had to drop close to $100m into the budget before any studio would help back his 23-year-old dream film about the Tuskegee Airmen  WWII’s  barely heard of African-American fighter pilots. (So good, they shot down the first jet fighters, Messerschmitt Me 262s!)   Kelley read for read for Lieutenant Ray “Ray Gun” Gannon  – won by Wilds, which is when Lucas gave  Kelley Samuel “Joker” George.
