Shaun J. Brown plays Tracy Edwards on “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” and this role has earned him his share of praise. “In fact, the most memorable lines from this first episode belong to either [Niecy] Nash’s [Glenda] Cleveland or Shaun J. Brown’s Tracy Edwards,” wrote. “Brown’s delivery of ‘You killed my people, motherf***er’ is especially chilling.”
According to Brown’s, he started his acting career in national musical theater tours. In 2008, though, he switched his attention to television and film. He acted in a series of short films before landing a role in an episode of the short-lived Current TV drama “Bar Karma.” His list of small TV roles grew quickly from there, including appearances in “Bunheads,” “Switched at Birth,” and “Big Time Rush.”
In 2013, Brown appeared in two episodes of HBO’s hit vampire series “True Blood.” His character, Bruce, is a member of Nicole Wright’s (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) group of do-gooder human activists seeking to protect vampires from persecution at human hands in Season 6. Like Nicole, he is more than a little bit naive regarding matters of the supernatural and winds up getting mauled and eaten by Alcide Herveaux’s (Joe Manganiello) pack of wolves.
