Alonzo: Salubrity before celebrity.

“I keep playing bouncers or security guards for the star,” Alonzo tells host Shawn Stevenson vis-à-vis his budding screen career, which includes bit parts in Scary Movie 4, The Girl Next Door and National Lampoon’s Totally Baked.

“I’m cool with that— because I earned my health insurance. That’s the extent of my acting experience: If I work enough to make health insurance, I don’t need an Academy Award. I need coverage.

“You want the truth about showbiz? People looking for all this red-carpet glamour, let me tell you, this is a grind. This is a hustle right here.

“If you’re making health insurance, you’re ahead of 90 percent of the actors in America. If I make health insurance, that’s a good year for me.”
