NICOYE BANKS in Walt Disney Movie Invincible

Monday, August 28, 2006

Nicoye Banks co-stars opposite Mark Wahlberg and Greg Kinnear as "T.J. Banks"...the veteran Philadelphia Eagles defensive back who takes it upon himself to introduce Wahlberg’s character, "Vince Papale," to the Rights of Passage to the NFL. “Vince Papale” is a Philadelphia Eagles fan who has just lost his wife and his teaching job. He decides one day to show up for an open tryout for his favorite NFL team, only to see his wildest dreams come true.

The Crescent City was the backdrop when the curtain was first raised on this up-and-coming star’s career. NICOYE was first bit by the “acting bug” while being cast in his first film. . ."Heart of Stone", where alongside noteworthy actor Clifton Davis (Amen), he portrayed a wayward teenager sent to a boys home as an alternative to jail, in order to make a positive life change. Shortly thereafter, NICOYE’S performance, in "The Colored Museum", at Southern University of New Orleans afforded him the opportunity to display his range by playing a number of diverse characters. From there, it didn’t take long for NICOYE’S talents to be recognized by Tommye Myrick (director of theatre at Southern University of New Orleans), who subsequently encouraged NICOYE to relocate to New York so that he could further his training in theatre under the direction of Myrick’s mentor, Gene Frankel.

NICOYE has continuously demonstrated his ability to play a wide range of characters, including his role as the flamboyant rap artist “B. Mo Smoov” in the 2005 release of “G”. While filming “G,” NICOYE holds his own opposite a cast that includes Richard T. Jones (The Wood, Judging Amy), Blair Underwood (Posse, Madea’s Family Reunion), Sonja Sohn (The Wire, Slam) and Andre Royo (The Wire). NICOYE will also appear in the Tanuja Chandra produced “Hope and a Little Sugar” scheduled for release between the later part of 2006 and early 2007. Additionally, in 2007, NICOYE’S star will shine, yet again, in the movie Pride and Glory, with Colin Farrell and Ed Norton.

“It matters not how straight the gate, nor how charged with punishment the scroll. . . I am the master of my fate. . . I am the captain of my soul”, says NICOYE.
