Kenan Thompson

  1. DeRay Davis, The Fog, 2004.    The first Saturday Night Live star to be younger than SNL was among several young USA TV stars – John Cho, Jon Heder, Dominic Monaghan, Eric Christian Olsen, Wilmer Valderrama – seen for Brett Spooner. Until Davis’s test conquered the producers. And, suddenly, Spooner was black. John Carpenter’s 1979 original had a small budget, some imagination and a strong cast, recalled UK critic Philip French. “The new version has a sizable budget, no imagination and a cast of nonentities.”
