Interview: Marcel Spears of ABC's 'The Mayor'

In ABC's "The Mayor," young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) needs his big break. For years he’s toiled away in a small inner-city apartment, making music in his junk-filled bedroom closet. Tired of waiting for an opportunity to knock, Courtney cooks up the publicity stunt of the century – running for mayor of his California hometown, Fort Grey, to generate buzz for his music career. But his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: an election victory.

The cast attended the PaleyFest Fall Previews, Screening, Panel and Q&A of their show last month at Paley Center For Media. 

TVMusic Network was on hand and talked to the cast including actor and rapper Marcel Spears. Check out the interview below where the actor talks about landing the role of a lifetime. We also put Marcel to the test, asking if he were the Mayor of his hometown, what would they do in the role.

"The Mayor" premieres Tuesday, October 3 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
