Through mutual acquaintances. A friend of mine who I did a movie for, his name’s Tommy Oliver, he worked with the producer of Halfway on one of his projects that he did a couple years back that I was a part of, then the producer reached out to Tommy to get a hold of me. We met, and then they pitched me the project and the rest was history. I was, like, down from the jump. (Source: theundefeated.com)

Movie

Although his co-star Sandra Bullock was the one who won the Oscar for "The Blind Side," her then-unknown co-star Quinton Aaron garnered much of the critical praise for his sensitive portrayal of real-life disadvantaged high school football player Michael Oher, who went on to become a pro footballer for the Baltimore Ravens. Aaron, born in the inner-city Bronx but raised in Augusta, Georgia, began performing as a youngster in his mother's church. Returning to New York City, Aaron made his feature film debut with a small but memorable role as Q, the video store customer also known as "The Lion King Guy," in Michel Gondry's surreal comedy "Be Kind Rewind," starring Jack Black and Mos Def. After a handful of short films, two guest appearances on "Law & Order," and a small part as a bodyguard in a TV movie legal thriller called "Play or Be Played," Aaron was cast in the prime role as Oher in "The Blind Side" by director John Lee Hancock. After the critical and commercial success of that film, Aaron returned to working primarily in television, with guest appearances in series including the small-town drama "One Tree Hill," the procedural drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and the offbeat legal dramas "Harry's Law" and "Drop Dead Diva."

Quinton Aaron is best known for his portrayal of Michael Oher, aka Big Mike, alongside Oscar winner Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw, in the Academy Award winning hit movie, The Blind Side (2009), which has grossed over $300 million Worldwide making it the highest grossing sports film of all time. While that movie was such a huge success for many people, including Quinton’s co-star Sandra Bullock. It was pretty clear to the 6’8” gentle giant that he was not as popular in the realm of Hollywood, as he was never offered, nor did he get another opportunity to star in, or even co-star in another block-buster hit movie. However, that did not stop the actor from pursuing his dreams. (Source: iamquintonaaron.com)
