*Actor Jovan Adepo (Cory) made his studio feature film debut in “Fences,” a role he describes in the exclusive clip above as an “incredibly nerve-wracking” experience… “in the beginning.”

Adepo is known for his recurring role on HBO’s “The Leftovers,” playing ‘Michael Murphy,’ who was introduced in Season Two. Born in England, Adepo moved at a young age to North Carolina where he grew up. Upon moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, he appeared in the independent features “The Youth” and “Bruise” and landed a guest role on the hit series “NCIS: Los Angeles.”

To celebrate the upcoming home entertainment release of “FENCES”  — arriving on blu-ray March 14th — and Viola Davis’ epic Oscar win, check out this clip of Denzel Washington talking about how hard he had to push his young actors for this project.

“Fences” sypnosis:

The film takes places in Pittsburgh in the 1950s, but the exact year is never stated.

Troy (Denzel Washington) and Bono (Stephen Henderson) work as trash collectors in Pittsburgh. Troy complains that they never hire colored men for the driving; they always have to do the lifting. Bono asks about a girl that he’s seen Troy eyeing at the bar they frequent. Troy claims he just bought her a drink and that hes never chased women after marrying Rose.

The two get to Troy’s house where they are greeted by Rose (Viola Davis). She asks if Bono is going to stay for supper. He says hes going home for pig feet. Troy says hes going to go home with Bono unless she can top that; Rose tells him shes cooking chicken. Rose and Troy are affectionate with each other and recall marrying each other 18 years earlier. She tells him that their son, Cory, has been recruited by a college football team. He tells her the white men aren’t going to let a colored boy play football.
