Jay Ellis: I've been punched, slapped, chased, cussed at over my Insecure role

I done been chased down the hallway at the airport over Lawrence. It’s really interesting. This is one of my favorite things about Lawrence…that he is a dude that polarizes. You either love him or hate him, and as an actor that’s one of my favorite things about what I do.”
