About this Article
Louis Gossett Jr. has been in the acting game for a long time. In 1953 a 17-year-old Gossett made his Broadway debut in "Take a Giant Step." His first turn on the silver screen came as Beneatha Younger's bourgeois suitor, George Murchison, in the 1961 classic film "A Raisin in the Sun." Gossett talks about how his life changed after his Oscar win, his battle with alcoholism and why he walked out of "Django Unchained."
