When asked about the family dynamics between brothers Meech and Terry,actor explained how they'll reach a "crossroads".
"What we end up seeing is we see the four of them – when we talk about the two boys, the mother and the father – we see them at a crossroads where they will have to make a decision as to who's needs this day they will serve. And as the saying goes, you can't be a Servant of Two Masters.
