Quinton Aaron of The Blind Side

Blind Side: Evolution of a Game, which features the real-life story of Michael Oher. Oher had started in ten games as a guard during his first season with the Ole Miss Rebels, becoming a first-team freshman All American, and later an American football offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens.Aaron auditioned for the role of Michael Oher after his mother found out about the casting call online. Chosen as a finalist, he was flown in to Los Angeles for the final audition. Unsure whether he had been successful, he reached into his pocket on his way to the door and pulled out a card, telling director John Lee Hancock that he knew that it was a long shot for him to get the part but that he did security work and would love to do those services that should they be needed for the film. Director Hancock said that he would keep it in mind.

On March 24, 2010, Aaron guest-starred with Jill Scott in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. On April 28, 2010, Quinton guest-starred in the “We All Saw This Coming” episode of Mercy. On April 4, 2011 Quinton guest-starred in the season finale of Harry’s Law with his The Blind Side co-star Kathy Bates.
