Aaron Jennings, who plays mild-mannered accountant Anthony Holmes on NBC's hangout comedy Grand Crew, has been immersed in the entertainment industry for most of his life. The credit goes to his parents, Brent Jennings (The CW's All American) and Juanita Jennings (Fox's Star). "The art world is something I was very familiar with growing up, but I didn't see myself making a career out of it until I was in about 10th grade and I dove right in," he explains in this edition of Multicultural TV Talk. "They didn't want me to do it as a child. They wanted me to know what it was like to be a normal teen, but I was always around sets and backstage. I'd go to auditions with them and help them run lines. It was an interesting childhood."
