During a recent roundtable interview with Moore, he talked about the lessons he learned about playing a leading man in Dope.
Pharrell Williams serves an an executive producer on Dope, the inspired comedy/drama about a trio of Inglewood, Ca. high schoolers (Shameik Moore,Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons) who are all about ’90s hip-hop.
