Actor and comedian Tommy Davidson has had a very long and illustrious career, but during a recent interview, he explained that he had some pretty serious ties to the Cowboy State.

During an interview on The DL Hughley Show, which was uploaded to the TV One YouTube channel, Davidson opened up about how his adoptive white mother, found him as a baby, hidden under a tire in the trash, in a drug invested home. He also went into details about growing on a farm in both Fort Collins, Colorado and Laramie, Wyoming in his younger years, as well as coming up in a mixed race household in the 1960s.

Davidson is probably best known for his many roles on the sketch comedy show, In Living Color, which also starred Jim Carrey and almost the entire Wayans family.
