Forest adeptly takes on two real-life figures as Reverend C.L. Franklin in the motion picture "Respect" and legendary gangster Bumpy Johnson in the tv series "Godfather of Harlem". Forest’s mastery of big and small screen may make him a winner at the ceremony which airs June 26th at 8pm. Before we get to the show, let’s take a look back at some of his fashion moments.
