Corey Hawkins is filling big shoes with his lead role in the “24: Legacy” reboot. TheYBF.com got the chance to chop it up with the YBF actor about his new role, his relationship status and more. Soak it up inside…

Corey Hawkins, who gained notoriety as Dr. Dre in Straight Outta Compton, is making major waves on the Hollywood scene with his lead role in the “24: Legacy” reboot. The series debuted right after Super Bowl LI last night, just in time for Black History Month. 

The YBF actor is filling the shoes of Kiefer Sutherland who played Jack Bauer in the original “24” series. It’s a really big deal that a black actor is taking over the role that was originally played by a white man, especially since Corey is still considered a newbie in the game so to speak.

Corey, who also stars in “The Walking Dead,” sat down with YBF correspondent James Terrell to chat it up about his kick a** role, his hot co-star Anna Diop and whether or not he’s single. Take note ladies!

Peep the clip above.

Be sure to tune in tonight for the 2nd episode of "24: Legacy" at 8/7c on FOX.
