D.B. Woodside Expresses Desire for Leading Role as Hollywood Faces Labor Standoff


As the entertainment industry grapples with ongoing labor disputes and actors stand united on picket lines, D.B. Woodside is sending a clear message to studios: he’s ready to step into the spotlight. The accomplished actor, best known for his role as attorney Jeff Malone on the hit show Suits, took to social media to declare his aspiration for a leading role in his own show.

Woodside’s tweet, posted on Tuesday, resonated with fans and industry insiders alike. In a candid admission, he referred to it as the “boldest tweet” he has ever sent, indicating his strong determination to carve out a new phase in his career. The tweet is shown below.

With a career spanning several decades, Woodside has showcased his acting prowess in an array of acclaimed television dramas. His portfolio boasts appearances on iconic series such as Murder One, The Practice, Once and Again, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 24, and Parenthood. His performances on USA’s Suits (2014-2018) and Lucifer (2016-2021) have solidified his status as a versatile and skilled actor.

Recently, Woodside appeared on Fox’s 911: Lone Star, reuniting with former Suits co-star Gina Torres. Although it remains uncertain whether he will reprise his role as Trevor, a character involved in a relationship with Torres’ character, Tommy, the door has been left open for his potential return in the upcoming season.

Despite his ambitions, Woodside, along with his fellow actors, finds himself in a holding pattern due to the ongoing standoff between SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). Negotiations have yet to be renewed since the strike commenced 33 days ago.

As the industry navigates these uncertain waters, Woodside’s declaration serves as a reminder of the dedication and resilience exhibited by actors who are eager to contribute their talents to the entertainment landscape. The question remains: once the labor dispute is resolved, will Hollywood be ready to embrace D.B. Woodside’s quest for marquee stardom?
