Nate Parker stars in "Red Tails," opposite Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., as Marty "Easy" Julian. Parker says, "Easy takes everything with a grain of salt, because he has to. He understands that there are regulations when it comes to the military and the only way you win is by following those regulations. The best way to stifle any goal you might have is to break the rules. So, for him it's not a question of right or wrong, it's a question of orders. It's the way he was raised. It's the way he thinks every soldier should act. However, he's starting to doubt that and the only thing he can do to squelch those doubts is drink. So, there's a constant internal battle."

Nate Parker has made it his aim to take on roles that matter, from Henry Lowe in "The Great Debaters" to Ben Chavis, the youngest person to become executive director of the NAACP in "Blood Done Sign My Name." Parker's other feature film credits include critical and fan favorites such as "Pride," "The Secret Life of Bees," "1968 Tunnel Rats" and "Rome and Jewel," a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet."

On stage, Parker has appeared in "American Voices" at the Broad Street Theater. Recently, he co-produced the critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama, "Magic City Memoirs."

Parker is also actively involved in his community — mentoring children from schools in central Los Angeles through the Peace for Kids after-school program, sponsoring a Peace for Kids scholarship fund and supporting 100 Men of Excellence, a program at Wiley College that identifies and offers scholarships to African-American men.
