This "Moesha' Actor Is Now 32 & Doing Something Different Apart from Acting
Actor Marcus T. Paulk, better known for his childhood roles in series like “Martin” and “Moesha,” has now expanded his career in the industry and is doing more than acting. He’s the owner of a model agency, and also works as a director and producer.
Paulk started his career in Hollywood at age 7, when he got his first small role in the TV series ”Grace Under Fire.”
Afterward, he made minor appearances on more series like “Thea,” “The Sinbad Show,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Martin,” where he gave life to the main character’s long lost son.
He kept a steady rhythm in his rising career as a child star until 1996, when he earned the role of Myles Mitchell, Brandy Norwood’s character little brother in the popular series “Moesha.” The series ran for five years.
In 2005 Paulk co-starred in the film "Rollbounce" next to hip hop artist and fellow actor Bow Wow. The following year, he shared the screen with Antonio Banderas in "Take the Lead,” where he had to train in the art of ballroom dancing to execute some of his scenes.
He kept making small appearances in more series and films, and also leaped to the music industry by releasing an EP as a rapper under the stage name "MP.”
WHERE IS HE NOW?
These days, however, Paulk is working behind the scenes as a music video director, producer and the owner of a modeling agency named VVS Models.
His company offers bookings for female and male models, locations, props, luxurious cars, and many more services.
Although Paulk is now a businessman, he’s hasn’t strayed too far from acting. He recently made a cameo on Young Dolph and Snoop Dogg’s music video for “I think I can fly,” and he’s also working on a new movie titled “Bomb Pizza the Movie.”
Paulk not only stars in the movie, but he’s also producing. So far, he has announced cameos from stars such a Ray J, and Masika Kalysha, and says he’s “very excited” about the project.
PAST RUN-INS WITH THE LAW
It’s good to see Paulk back on track in his life after a few encounters with the law a few years ago.
In 2013, he was arrested and charged in a domestic violence incident, in which he plead no contest to one count of battery.
And in 2015, he was arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies after he was pulled over in Scottsdale, Arizona, for allegedly driving too close to a firetruck. Paulk failed a sobriety test and admitted to being drunk and smoking weed.
He was arrested for DUI and drug possession.
Paulk pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation.
The L.A born star was in Arizona at the time to attend the Superbowl.
Since then, it seems like Paulk hasn’t gotten in more troubles with the law, as he focuses on working hard to make a name for himself in the industry.
