A talented wide receiver, Keith was in talks with prestigious college football programs, but when he decided not to pursue his first passion, went on to sign with the prestigious modeling agency, Wilhelmina, after high school. He has since been featured in GQ fashion editorials, shot campaigns for Guess, Sketchers, Target, Sears, and walked the runway at Calvin Klein at Milan Fashion Week . But he has decided he would rather mainly focus on his acting career.

The film was directed by F. Gary Gray, and slated for a highly-anticipated theatrical release on August 14, 2015.
