It’s Monday morning; the birds are out chirping, the wind is vivaciously blowing and Mother Nature is letting Fall bask in all her glory which could only mean one thing over here at HeyMikeyATL; it’s time for our infamous #CelebrityCrush and what better way to salute one of Tinsel Town’s upcoming leading men!
He’s playing Cyborg in the upcoming films and his road to stardom will not stop there. Gather ’round ladies and gents to see why we’re crushing on Ray Fisher!
A native of New Jersey (like myself, hey friend!), Ray Fisher was introduced to theatre by his high school English teacher. From that point on, Ray was active in the school’s theatre and choir program and sang in his church’s choir.
Ray Fisher is probably best known for his portrayal of the superhero Cyborg (also known as Victor Stone) in the film “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and he will reprise his Cyborg role in several of the upcoming Justice League films. Back in October of 2014 it was announced that Ray Fisher will reprise the same role in his own standalone Cyborg film in 2020.
When speaking on being cast, Fisher has said,
“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film. I’m a long-game player and didn’t see any of this happening until at least my 40’s. It’s a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now.”
And in case you were wondering, yes Ray Fisher will also star and reprise his Cyborg role in the upcoming film “The Flash”. There are currently NO signs of Ray Fisher slowing down and a drive like that always makes us squeal!
