Brian Tyree Henry Cried For 20 Minutes Over 'This Is Us' Death

This Is Us guest star Brian Tyree Henry is all of us.

The Atlanta star admits he teared up over William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) death in the latest episode.

“I was crying for at least twenty minutes after the episode,” Bryan told Us Weekly.

In case you didn’t watch (in which case – why?!), he played William’s estranged cousin. And in real life, he’s best friends with star Sterling K. Brown.

“I’ve known Ron and Sterling for quite some years and to watch them on this show and on this set, the development they made for these characters, it was really beautiful to watch them work together,” Bryan added. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a relationship between father and son, especially an African American father and son, captured in such a way. I’ve never seen anything like that before and they do it with such finesse that it’s so refreshing.”

    20 minutes!? What a fuckin douche.

  • Koos

    he has any tears left in his body?

  • VanityInsecurity

    had to just add the African American in it.. it just couldn’t be about a father & son.

  • Angie

    Love this actor. He’s hilarious on Atlanta and he was great as William’s cousin on This is Us.

  • Gina

    No, it couldn’t just be about a “father & son” because there aren’t a lot of positive African American father-son portrayals in the media. There is however, a plethora of positive Caucasian father-son portrayals. Being clueless is never a good look, darling.

  • VanityInsecurity

    you are constantly bothered by every single one of my comments & never fail to respond to me.. other ppl called him a douche & you are bothered by what I said. prioritize your life.

  • Gina

    Honey, I haven’t responded to your asinine comments in ages. If I did, I’d be here all day. I’m flattered that I left an impression, though lol. Furthermore, the other people’s comments that you are referring to weren’t there when I responded to you, they must’ve been posted after. Nice try, though.

  • VanityInsecurity

    LOL left an impression? If my comment is asinine what does that say about you responding to it? Gurl just stop responding to me all together you are delusional & have no place in my discussions. kthanxbye.

  • Gina

    I respond because educating the clueless is a public service, darling.

    P.S Your deflection tactics need work
