Alonso’s extensive television credits also include leading roles in NBC’s "Deception" and A&E’s "Breakout Kings."
Theatrically, Alonso recently played Congressman John Conyers, in the Annapurna film "Detroit," directed by Kathryn Bigelow. He also starred opposite Paula Patton and Omar Epps in the independent Thriller "Traffik." Alonso previously starred opposite Patton in the hit romantic comedy "Jumping the Broom" for Columbia Pictures, for which he received a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor In A Motion Picture. He has also been nominated for a BET Best Actor Award. Prior to that, he played the heroic role of Tsu’Tey in the highest grossing film of all time, James Cameron’s "Avatar."

His past movie credits include lead roles in the Sony/Screen Gems’ hits "Stomp the Yard" and "This Christmas," a co-starring role in Sam Mendes’ hit "Jarhead," for Universal Pictures opposite Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, Jake Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, and a supporting role in Rod Lurie’s remake of the Sam Peckinpah classic "Straw Dogs." Alonso also starred in Spike Lee’s "Miracle at St. Anna," in which he played Hector Negron, based on a true story of a black and Puerto Rican WWII Buffalo Soldier that witnessed something that he carried inside for over 30 years until his past meets him again.
Alonso has also executive produced and starred opposite Danny Glover in Alan Jacobs’ "Down for Life," which ended up with a much-coveted position in the Toronto Film Festival, where it received critical acclaim. He has directed a mini documentary that premiered at Art Basel titled "I Am," which highlighted a Washington DC artist who paints homeless people in prestigious settings.
Born and raised in Washington DC, Alonso always knew he wanted to be an actor. He graduated from the prestigious Howard University School of Business, earning a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. After college, he worked on Wall Street as an investment banker at MERRILL LYNCH and began his acting career simultaneously, doing NY off-broadway theater.

I definitely would recommend AAE to a colleague. I actually already did. The AAE Team was great. it was my first time working with talent such as Laz and it was a great experience. My only issues was the quick turnaround for the payment with an organization as big as ACS it takes a little longer to get payments made. I am hoping next time we can schedule things with more time in between scheduling and the actual event so we can have an extra time cushion to get the payment in before the event. We were able to do it this time but with many exceptions being made for me by the organization but that is not the norm.
Then we had a meeting cancelled on us which we understand and wasn't a big deal but not a few hours later we got an email asking when the payment was coming. That was just bad timing. There needs to be communications between offices so that doesn't happen. We just shook our heads and laughed but unfortunately not everyone reacts the same.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
