Rocketing to instant celebrity with his breakout role in the independent hit "Dope" (2015), Shameik Moore first began his career as a dancer. Born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995, Moore was just 12 when he began releasing dance and choreography videos on YouTube, and was participating in Atlanta's "Dance Invasion" showcase by his teens. Soon, he was appearing as a dancer in music videos such as Soulja Boy's "Tell'em (Bird Walk)" and Keri Hilson's "Turnin Me On." In 2011, he made his first foray into television, appearing on an episode of "House of Payne" (TBS, 2006-). He moved into feature films with a small part in "Joyful Noise" (2012) the following year, before joining the cast of the kids sketch comedy series "Incredible Crew" (Cartoon Network, 2012-13). He would make another big screen appearance in the family film "The Watsons Go to Birmingham" (2013) before his big break came with 2015's "Dope." Playing a nerdy kid with an obsession for '90s hip hop, Moore became an overnight celebrity thanks to the film's overwhelming response at the Sundance Film Festival. Moore's string of success would continue when he was cast in Baz Luhrmann's series "The Get Down" (Netflix, 2016-), a show about a group of teens living in the late '70s Bronx amidst the burgeoning hip hop scene.

QUOTES FROM Shameik Moore CHARACTERS

Diggy says: Guys, the FBI can track us. The police...

Malcolm says: No.

Jib says: No, they can't.

Malcolm says: Uh-uh.

Jib says: Not if you use a Tor browser.

Diggy says: What the fuck is that?

Jib says: Onion routing.

Malcolm says: Layered encryptions.

Jib says: It's like a game of Whac-a-Mole with thousands of computers.

Malcolm says: Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Malcolm Arakanbe. I'm a straight-A student with nearly perfect SAT scores. I play in a punk band with my friends and I'm a 90s hip hop geek. A bad day for most geeks would be being the butt of jokes but when you live in the Bottoms, a bad day could look like this.

Malcolm says: If Neil deGrasse Tyson were writing about Ice Cube, this is what it would look like.

Mr. Bailey says: You go to high school in Inglewood. You think you're going to get into Harvard?

Malcolm says: I'm from a poor, crime-filled neighborhood, raised by a single mother, don't know my dad, blah, blah. It's cliche.

The Narrator says: Malcolm lives in Inglewood, California, in the Darby-Dixon neighborhood referred to as the Bottoms.

Jib says: Give me your bike!

The Narrator says: Malcolm's friends Jib and Diggy are also geeks.

Jib says: All I wanna do is a zoom, zoom, zoom and a boom boom.

Malcolm says: Word.

Malcolm says: We were dancing, man.

Dom says: If I let this slide, we got what you call a slippery slope. Do you know what a slippery slope is?

Crip 1 says: Do it got anything to do with skiing?

Dom says: Sit your ass down!
