John Clarence Stewart On Black Men Showing Vulnerability

The season finale of NBC’s “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” aired in early May. The musical dramedy centers on Zoey Clarke (Jane Levy) a smart computer coder who magically begins to hear people’s innermost thoughts through song.

John Clarence Stewart (Netflix’s “Luke Cage” and “What If”) stars as Simon, a new co-worker whom Zoey bonds with over the death of his father. After a season of ups and downs, we were left with the cliff hanger as Zoey and Simon debate on moving their friendship into the relationship zone. Jill Munroe talked with Stewart about his journey to the role, Black men discussing grief on TV, his favorite musical numbers of the season and how he’s been keeping himself occupied during the Covid-19 crisis.
