Never before has any actor guest starred or appeared in FIVE series/TV shows at the same time. Cole is currently on Conan (he's also a writer on the show), Black-ish, College-ish, Face Value and Angie Tribeca and we hear that he's even up for several film roles including the film titled The Female Brain supposedly set to debut later this year.
