Quinton Aaron, Star of “The Blind Side”, Gives Back at Ravens’ Charity Event
Quinton Aaron played Michael Oher, the main character in “The Blind Side”, a film about the life of the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive tackle. So naturally he was on hand to help promote Jonathan Ogden’s Golf outing in Las Vegas, who was a former Ravens’ offensive tackle.
“I looked at it as a blessing to be here. With such great Baltimore folks, I’m such a big Baltimore Raven fan. And Mr. Ogden himself. He is intimating in person,” Aaron told Class Act Sports at the outing in June 2012.
The 2009 critically acclaimed film was based on Oher’s difficult upbringing to become a success story in the NFL. While it will be tough to follow up his performance in that film, Aaron is keeping busy these days with other projects.
“I’m still working, I got projects coming up, some movies coming up I’m actually training now to get in shape for a movie coming up this fall. Still doing charity and going overeas the next month in a half to visit the troops in Afghanistan so I’m doing a lot. Staying busy,” he said.
In the middle of the interview, another celebrity stopped by to talk about Ogden and his efforts.
“I’ve actually only met him in the last hour but, first class dude,” actor Josh Emerson said.
Emerson then went on to say he had seen Aaron at many events similar to this one.
“I do these all the time. I like doing charity work. This guy, he is the epitome of charity work. So we like doing this stuff its a lot of fun and that is what its about. The fans and the people are everything. We don’t work with out them,” he told Class Act Sports.
