Mu-Shaka Benson, who stars in the upcoming movie Crossbreed, recently participated in a Party Q interview with us.

Crossbreed star Mu-Shaka Benson recently took the time do a “Party Question” interview with us here at Hidden Remote. A little background on Benson, he is as real as it gets. He’s a total badas* who has served in the U.S. Army as a team leader.

He is a combat veteran. And now that his time in the armed forces is finished, he has turned to a long-held passion of his: Acting. Benson had always wanted to act, but it wasn’t until after he returned from war zones that he got around to pursuing it.

Now, the actor is racking up the credits and can be seen in movies such as Dwelling, The Price for Silence, and the soon-to-be-released Crossbreed, in which he stars alongside Vivica Fox, Daniel Baldwin, and Devanny Pinn.

Oh, and he also has a sense of humor. You’ve been warned.

Crossbreed is set for VOD release on February 5. Here are 30 things you (probably) didn’t know about Mu-Shaka Benson.
