Pure Man Power
BY// DENENE MILLNER
Peep Anthony Mackie’s filmography and it’s clear the actor, who’s enjoyed star turns in the Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, The Adjustment Bureau and Notorious, has a firm foothold on how to win in Hollywood. The Juilliard-trained thespian’s recent gig is Man on a Ledge (out now), a high-action thriller about a desperate ex-con threatening to plunge off a building. Luckily, unlike the flick’s main character, Mackie cops to having a great safety net to guide his personal and professional choices. The 32-year-old talks to JET about the men who’ve set the blueprint for him— and ensure that he never teeters on the edge.
