Following his success in athletics, T.C.’s desires shifted to a career in film and television.

He went on to win the show and was rewarded with an opportunity to host a 1-hour special about Koalas on the network. A few years later, T.C. competed in the AMTC (Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ) and was a finalist for Best Overall Male Actor. Following this great achievement, T.C. landed the role of “T.J.” in the hit movie “Courageous”, which was his major motion picture debut.
