Who Plays Mr. Lawrence on 'This Is Us'? Brandon Scott Is Used to Playing a Role Model

By

Jack Pearson just got some competition on This Is Us and there probably isn't anything he can do about it. In a flashback to Randall's childhood in a recent episode, viewers met Randall's teacher, Mr. Lawrence and the childhood version of the city councilman was absolutely smitten to meet him. It had much to do with the fact that, like Randall, Mr. Lawrence is African American, and Randall is just looking for a mentor figure he can identify with more than his adoptive parents.

After he made his This Is Us debut, people are wondering who plays Mr. Lawrence. The actor is no stranger to complex roles on TV and fans might recognize him from some other hit shows. And whether or not Mr. Lawrence is going to be a recurring figure in Randall's childhood, it’s clear he made an impact regardless.
