New York, NY (September 18, 2012)-- Cedric Stewart (Alan Ball's 'Banshee') has signed with Don Buchwald & Associates, Inc. Buchwald will represent Stewart across the board. Jonathan Mason will work directly with Stewart.

Stewart just finished filming an episode of Alan Ball's (True Blood) highly anticipated 'Banshee' in Charlotte, North Carolina. He also has a recurring role on Tyler Perry's TBS sitcom, "For Better or Worse."

Stewart continues to be repped by Sean Mik'ael at Serendipity Entertainment.

About Cedric Stewart

Hailing from Washington, DC, Cedric Stewart is one of Hollywood’s newest emerging actors to explode onto the scene. After attending Florida A&M University, Cedric decided he wanted to set out on a journey to become the biggest action star since Will Smith. In addition to professional acting coaching, Cedric currently trains within the Krav Maga Israeli military defense system as well as mixed martial arts.

Cedric’s first taste of the small screen was on HBO’s breakout comedy hit VEEP. Starring and produced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Cedric played a military officer in the second episode titled “Frozen Yoghurt.” This was just the beginning of a string of opportunities for this new actor. Cedric currently has a recurring role on Tyler Perry’s hit sitcom For Better or Worse (Season 2). He plays Tyrik, opposite the lead character Angela, played by Tasha Smith. Tyrik is the ex-boyfriend of Angela who comes back to reclaim her love. Fans can look forward to seeing Cedric in many more upcoming episodes as his character tries to rekindle this past relationship. For Better or Worse also stars Michael Jai White and Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Keeping up with the momentum, Cedric was recently added to the cast of Alan Ball’s new drama series Banshee. Banshee is slated to premiere in January 2013 on HBO/Cinemax and will feature actors such as Ben Cross (Star Trek), Antony Starr (Wish You Were Here) and Ivana Millicevic (Casino Royale). Cedric’s character, Damien Sanchez, is an MMA fighter who enters the town of Banshee, PA and starts a lot of trouble. “I’m excited to have this opportunity to work on such an amazing project. Playing a Pro MMA fighter is serious business, and if I look good doing so it’s because of the Krav Maga and MMA training I do with Otis “Black Belt” Berry at Brazu Academy in Gaithersburg, MD. He’s one of the best,” says Cedric.
