Yeah, but it was a short marriage. According to the info on IMDb only two years. They were both in the movie Streets of Fire from 1984.

I found this interesting article, where he talks about his role in the movie and with pics and a music video from that scene at the bottom of the page. 

http://goldenageofmusicvideo.com/actor-mykelti-williamson-talks-about-being-one-of-the-sorels-the-guys-who-didnt-sing-dan-hartmans-i-can-dream-about-you/

 Quote from the article:

"So you were in a group that didn’t sing the song in a movie nobody saw, but then you were famous for appearing in a hit video and all the group members went on to success in film but not music. It’s one of the strangest phenomena to ever occur in pop music."

Mykelti Williamson in the middle.  :) Originally a song written and sung by Dan Hartman. The story about it is a bit confusing. :)

Didn't know, that he was in the´music video either, until I found that article yesterday. It's really a great song. And some cool moves they did in the choreography.  :thumbsup:

I haven't seen the full movie, only parts of it, mostly from the video "Tonight is what it means to be young" with Diane Lane. Which is a wonderful song also. I believe there were supposed to be a sequel to the movie, which never came to be.
