The former UCLA Bruin defensive lineman has elevated on the small screen since the premiere of HBO’s Ballers in 2015. Carter kicked off ESPY week with an appearance on the red carpet at the Fuse Pre-ESPY Gifting Suite at a sleek Beverly Hills mansion. Carter along with other star attendees were given gifts that featured items from RYU athletic wear, UNRL, Mixnature, Double Bone, To Whom It May Chocolates, Bioderma, Only International Arrivals, Let it Bee Natural and others.
Carter enjoyed making his rounds as Ballers Season 2 premiered a week later, which is one of HBO’s most anticipated shows on the network. Never afraid to take risk, Carter has always been willing to take the next step, and has learned from past disappointments which he turned them into victories in life and for his career. After being cut from the Oakland Raiders in mini-camp a few years ago, a mentor of his introduced Carter to former UCLA quarterback Mark Harmon, who pointed the defensive lineman in the direction of acting.
