Nowadays, it’s as if Jesse Williams is a social activist rather than an actor.

“I care more about activism and social justice and law than I do about acting,” said Williams to Essence. “I have an awesome job that I love, but there’s this magnetic force that is constantly pulling me toward activism. I just have to do it.”

No worries, Williams will not be taking on activism full time, at least not yet. The Grey’s Anatomy actor has a few new projects in the works in the world of film: a biopic about Harry Belafonte, and two documentaries, one on the Black Lives Matter movement for BET, and another about the school to prison pipeline.

Congratulations Jesse!
