Nelson Estevez Talks Acrimony, Why Men Cheat and Working with Taraji P. Henson

Check out our interview with Nelson Estevez one of the stars from the upcoming movie Acrimony. He talks to us about his role in the movie, why he thinks men cheat, and what he learned from working with Tyler Perry and Taraji P. Henson.

How did you get the opportunity to be apart of this movie?

My agent sent me in for an audition, but I didn’t have any details or clue what the project was for since production was keeping everything confidential. All that was given to me were the sides, character breakdown/description, casting director name, and movie title. Within a week, I was on my way to Atlanta to Tyler Perry studios, this was when I was briefed as far as who hired me and who was starring,  which we now know it’s  Acrimony with Taraji P Henson.

What was it like working with the beautiful Taraji P. Henson?

She is a delight! She was professional, yet had such a fun-loving energy. I mostly admired how she was just able to turn it on and raise the bar as soon as she heard the word, “action!” I was like a sponge just absorbing her knowledge and how she executed her scenes. I would show up to her scenes just to watch her perform. She’s a beauty inside and out.

In Acrimony, you play Casey. Tell us about that role?

Casey is a grounded, faithful, and supportive husband. He can be a voice of reason that is always looking to find a solution to the issue— whether it being in his company, marriage, or friends and family.
