25 Funny People Who Should Get Their Own TV Shows

Nelsan Ellis

Twitter Handle: N/A

Even if you aren't a fan of True Blood, likely you've seen an episode or two. And surely you must remember Nelsan Ellis' performance as Lafayette Reynolds, the gay cook with significant attitude and grace.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Ellis is playwright; he got some serious attention for his play Ugly while studying at Julliard. HBOGo is featuring his recent short, Page 36, which he wrote and directed, until the end of March. We'd love to see more from Ellis. It'd be even better if we could see him outside of the confines of a show that too often flies off the rails.
