“Bad guy, I think I’m more misunderstood than anything,” Cupo denotes during a recent press conference about his obsessive and narcissistic character Xavier Collins in the newsest installment of “Wrath” from TD Jakes Seven Deadly Sins Anthology premiering April 16, 2022.
”I think we all have certain characters within us, and we can choose to either act on those emotions or suppress those emotions. For this character, I feel like there was a little stretch for me in that. The feeling of jealousy, I haven’t felt for a number of years. Although I remember a time in m life, in my very early twenties or late teens when that was kind of a thing, when I had to come to a realization of, ’Do I really want to
live my life like that.”

Bishop TD Jakes developed a fiercely provocative knack for sharing these stories while exploring topics on spirituality, tendencies, while using references from the seven deadly sins as it is written in the Bible. It’s deep interpretation, conversational pieces that’s fundamentally received— And how these sins impact society today. It is rousing at best.
