Kerr Smith recently has left television viewers stunned with his impressive acting performance on the television show 'The Fosters' but some entertainment insiders. His presence and superb acting for some entertainment insiders has only served as a reminder to them of part of his legacy as the revolutionary 'Dawson's Creek' character Jack McPhee, the first gay man to kiss another man on network television.
On television there are now many shows that have gay characters who display affection by kissing each other but before he had 'the kiss' on 'Dawson's Creek' it was a subject not touched on television. He was the first 'to kiss' and his portrayal of his gay character was fearless and in the view of some entertainment insiders 'cemented' his legacy.
However, this actor has not allowed himself to be satisfied and has worked consistently since the end of 'Dawson's Creek' in a variety of roles including a notable guest starring role on the popular television series 'NCIS' in which he played a serial killer who targeted Navy personnel.
In 2015 he is fascinating viewers with his acting performances on 'The Fosters' as a father who arrives late as a presence in his child's life through no fault of his own and with his remarkable acting range is able to turns his character from being perceived as only a villain to a likeable individual.
He emerged on the Hollywood scene playing the role of a young man who happened to also be gay on 'Dawson's Creek' but rather than let one role define him he has branched out and taken on so many different roles that many viewers have forgotten how he helped change the television landscape and in the process has avoided the 'stereotype' trap. He is a very gifted actor and could be in line for a career resurgence as a feature actor in 2015 if he continues his sterling performances.
Kerr Smith is a 'Dawson's Creek' alumni who looks like he is about to become an in-demand commodity with casting agents, producers and directors of both small and big screen projects because of his superb scene-stealing acting performances on 'The Fosters'. A silver-haired acting hunk who is making a 'name' for himself in 2015: Kerr Smith.
