MBP of the Week: Internet Movie Database

A Misidentified Black Person on IMDb? Say it ain’t so!

As you can plainly see, that picture above is not Tristan Wilds, the young actor who got his big break on “The Wire” and now co-stars in “90210.”

It’s Tyler James Williams, the star of “Everybody Hates Chris.”

To make matters worse, check out the photo below. That is Tristan Wilds... at the L.A. premiere of “The Secret Life of Bees.” But IMDb says it’s Nate Parker (who also co-stars in the movie).

Yo Tristan, don’t let it get you down, young’un. Just get used to being misidentified in the media... because it will happen again.

(Thanks for the tip, Mani.)

I'm surprised Gina Prince-Bythewood wasn't misidentified as Alicia Keys.

Because all us niggas look a like, thats how!
And obviously these two young men have distinctly different looks and acting styles!
In all fairness, my woman tells me I do the same thing with white celebrities, I couuldnt tell you the different between Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie!
