Is Lamman Rucker Anything Like Jacob Greenleaf?
Throughout the first season of OWN's hit show Greenleaf, Jacob Greenleaf believes that he is the heir apparent to his father, Bishop James Greenleaf, assuming that he'll take his father's place as lead pastor at Calvary World Ministries when the bishop finally retires. However, Jacob's world is turned upside down when his sister Grace returns to the family's home in Memphis, Tennessee. Grace's natural talent and drive impress her father, and the bishop decides to groom her for the pulpit in her brother's place. A frustrated Jacob, played by Lamman Rucker, breaks with Calvary and begins working for a rival pastor named Basie Skanks.
What does Lamman have in common with the troubled Greenleaf scion? Here, in an exclusive clip, Lamman reveals how he channels the conflicted feelings of his character.
Tune in to the Season 2 premiere of Greenleaf on March 15, only on OWN.
