After acting in over 100 films, Keith David says there's something different about playing the role of bishop in Oprah Winfrey's upcoming church-centered drama "Greenleaf."
David, who will star as Bishop James Greenleaf in the OWN dramatic series about the Greenleaf family and the dysfunction that surrounds their megachurch, says even though he's played a preacher before, in the new series he's able to "explore him more fully than most other ones I've played before.

When Oprah Winfrey asked David what it's like to preach from the pulpit with the bishop's robe on, he described it as an interesting experience. "Being able to find a scripture that's going to be significant for today, and for your life right now and to resonate, it's wonderful," he says in an interview with Winfrey about the series. more >>
