He’s worked with Whitney Houston in the movie the Preacher’s wife, and James Earl Jones on Broadway in August Wilson’s Fences. He recently returned back to Broadway after over 20 years. It seems as if he followed in the path of his wife, Angela Bassett, who returned to Broadway last season in The Mountaintop after many years. Only difference between the two is Vance has earned yet another Tony nomination for his work. Having been nominated 2 other times previously. For Nominee for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play, Vance works alongside another big box office name, Tom Hanks. He plays Hap Hairston the editor of the impulsive tabloid columnist Mike McAlary (Hanks). He holds his own ground but will it be enough to have him walk with the Tony? We can only hope. After all these years he deserves it.
