Interview: Allen Moldonado of “The Last OG” and Everybody Digital

Posted on July 16, 2018 at 1:42 pm

Allen Moldonado is a writer, performer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur, currently co-writing and co-starring in The Last OG, playing Cousin Bobby opposite Tracy Morgan. I interviewed him for The Credits and he talked about his “Netflix for short films,” Everybody Digital, creating the character of Cousin Bobby as actor and writer, and surviving the “actor’s Olympics” of daily soap operas.

Cousin Bobby is so much fun. He’s kind of the lovable idiot at times. Then there are also moments where he can be very dramatic and vulnerable and there are also times it can be intense. It’s the perfect role for an actor because you are able to explore so many different levels from drama to comedy. It’s a dream come true for me as an actor and just the type of direction I want to go in my career. I want to follow behind actors like Bruce Willis, Mark Wahlberg, and the Rock as far as being a funny tough guy. Cousin Bobby is the perfect meld of that direction. Being able to play alongside Tracy Morgan, Tiffany Haddish, Cedric the Entertainer and these comedic legends is a dream come true. It’s been a great opportunity big time to just grow and watch and perform with them.
