‘Insecure’ Star Jean Elie Aims to Represent the First-Generation Struggle in His New Show ‘Send Help
Jean Elie is having one hell of a summer.
Not only did the Insecure alum propose to his longtime girlfriend Randall Bailey while on vacation in Greece in June, but his new ALLBLK original series Send Help will also be debuting on the AMC streaming service on Aug. 11.
The actor is best known for his performance as Issa Rae’s hilarious TV brother Ahmal Dee on the Emmy-award-winning HBO series. His character’s longstanding beef with his sister’s friend Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) provided some of the show’s funniest moments, and he tells Complex that a lot of them were “riffed.” Aside from that role, he has also appeared in the Netflix hit series, Colin in Black and White and previously worked on The Eric Andre Show.
