Laz Alonso graces the premiere Men’s Issue of Fuzion Magazine for May 2013, available now in both digital and print format.
Inside a feature titled “Definition: Defining Laz Alonso,” the gorgeous Cuban-American actor dishes on what he’s learned from show business, love on and off-screen, personal triumphs and more.
“The only thing that’s going to keep you pushing and keep you depersonalizing rejection is if you totally love what you’re doing.”
For his debonair Jennifer Rose Keany-photographed shoot, he dons a three-piece suit from Alexander Nash, shirt from BDG, bowtie from Ike Behar, pocket square from Kiton, leather jacket from Rufskin NY, jeans by Naked and Famous Denim, and jewelry by Maddaloni Jewelers chosen by stylist Apuje Kalu.
“In this entertainment business “deception” happens every single week. One of the definite moments of disappointments and expectation. I always keep in mind that business is nothing guaranteed.
I always have to roll with the punches with this business. This business of entertainment is built on “what you see is what you get”. And I learned to not believe everything you hear and see. In this business they are always looking for the next big thing.”
Alonso, who starred in NBC’s prime time crime drama Deception alongside actress Meagan Good, will soon return to the big screen in Battle of the Year: The Dream Team, an upcoming 3D dance film.
Also starring Josh Holloway, Chris Brown, and Josh Peck, the Benson Lee-directed feature is based on Lee’s documentary about the b-boying competition of the same name, which was initially titled Planet B Boy.
“My first scene was a romantic scene with this young actress. As the romantic scene came and we went for the kiss, her tongue was so long [starts to laugh] it was tickling my lungs. I mean I could not breathe for that moment!”
