Peter Lawson Jones, if you'll remember, is more than just a politician and lawyer; he's a bit of an amateur thespian. His turn in The Great White Hope at Karamu House showed he had some acting chops, and now he's taking his local experience to the big-time. Sort of.

NewsNet5 reports that Lawson Jones has landed a bit role as a homeless man in upcoming episode of ABC's drama "Detroit 187."

Congratulations, sir, and here's to hoping Hollywood rests somewhere in your post-politics plans. We could really use someone beside Drew Carey to claim as our own.
