NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - NFL star turned actor Thomas Q. Jones talks about his role in 'Being Mary Jane.' The series airs on BET.
"The show is about a successful news anchor (Mary Jane Paul played by Gabrielle Union) who has a lot of social issues and relationship issues," said Jones. "I'm the guy she calls when she needs a little TLC."
Jones- who plays Brandon- is Paul's "friend with benefits."
It's not clear if the pair end up together at the end of the current season.
"The beauty of this show is the cast doesn't really know if you're not in the episode. They do a really good job of keeping you on your toes," said Jones.
'Being Mary Jane' airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
