Brian Tyree Henry Comes Home to Atlanta After 4 Years of Conquering the World

“I haven’t been home to my place in New York in over four years,” says Brian Tyree Henry, and the main reason is Atlanta.

He has more than two dozen screen credits since 2018, the year we last saw his Atlanta char- acter, Alfred Miles, a rising rapper who records under the name Paper Boi.

And he worked in a charming, introspective performance as an everyday New Yorker, locked out of his apartment, in 2020’s The Outside Story, his first leading role in a film.
