    Too bad I can only pick one classification from the list to describe Titus. He "should've been a bigger star" because he's "original," "talented," "underrated," and "gorgeous!" Over the past 10-15 years, Titus has played a number of widely diverse roles in movies and TV. From his very first on-screen appearance in Navy Seals as "redneck in the bar" to a starring role as a cop in Brooklyn South, Titus has never disappointed his fans and has always given us a great performance to watch. Even when he has just a brief appearance, or is in the background of a scene, he steals the scene with all his expressions and mannerisms that distract the audience from the so-called real stars. My all-time favorite Titus performance was as mob captain Sonny Napoli in Falcone. Many of his guest appearances in network shows were also memorable -- Zachary the hitman in Hack, a corrupt cop in UC Undercover, and the evil Gregory in Touched By an Angel just to name a few. Because Titus is able to bring so much personality to each character he plays, it's no surprise that his audiobook performance narrating "Every Dead Thing" was a real treat for his fans. Titus brought dozens of unique characters to life in the telling of this story. The world has not yet discovered what a great talent he is, and he remains the secret pleasure of a handfull of loyal fans.moreless
