Michael began his acting career while attending a school called, Dorsey High School. When he was enrolled there, Michael starred in several plays at his school. In 2000, he played a role in The Wire alongside of Wood Harris and Michael K Williams; that was also how he got his first big break on television as well.

With more than just a few movies to his name, Michael is about to become one of the most sought-after actors around! That’s not all – it seems like all of these opportunities have resulted in skyrocketing Michael’s wealth as well! His net worth is said to be $20 million by 2022, according to Forbes . Such a huge figure proves how talented he really is! It’s also surprising how much each movie he appears in adds up to when tallied up together!
Michael is married to his longtime girlfriend, actress and model Keisha Tillis. The couple tied knot on September 9, 2015, after dating for a year and a half. Together they share two sons; sons born on 2016 and 2018 respectively.

Awards & Achievements
Awarded for Excellence in Drama for Fruitvale Station and his role as Oscar Grant III, Michael won a Critics’ Choice Award and received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor from 2013 to 2014. He won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor on Television at the NAACP Image Awards and was nominated for Best Young Actor/Best Performance by an Ensemble Cast-Drama at Teen Choice Awards all three years he has appeared on screen, starting with HBO drama series The Wire (2002).

Assets & Investments
Like most celebrities, Michael makes his money through a variety of methods and sources. Unlike most stars, he hasn’t been active in music since 2006—instead, he’s focused on acting in major films like Creed (2015), Fantastic Four (2015), The Martian (2015), Black Panther (2018) and much more. Additionally, he takes home a nice living from his role as Othello Burrell on VH1’s Crime Time Story: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit — though it doesn’t appear to be near enough to land him on Forbes’ 100 Richest Celebrities list any time soon.
