You may not know Tristan Wilds' name, but he is the lone Black dude on 90210 . After a strong performance in The Secret Life of Bees the 19 year-old recently signed on to the World War II drama "Red Tails." According to the Hollywood Reporter :

"Wilds will play Ray 'Ray Gun' Knight, a flyboy nearly blinded over Nazi-occupied Italy who becomes the wingman of his friend and cohort, Marty. The two face the prejudice of the U.S. military as much as the overseas enemy but end up establishing an unprecedented record."

Tristan could be the next Will Smith !
