UMT Spotlight: Actor Thomas Q Jones-from “Cuddy Buddy” to ‘A Violent Man’ [AUDIO]


You may have seen my guest on the BET series “Being Mary Jane” starring Gabrielle Union. He popped in and popped out (literally) with Union’s character Mary Jane Paul as her special “cuddy buddy”.

Audiences got used to seeing Thomas Q Jones on screen and showed a lot of emotion when her character moved on without her cuddy buddy.
