With the "lived life in color" clue, I would think maybe it's someone who was on "In Living Color" back in the day. I think that was why one of the judges thought it was Jamie Foxx, but he's only 5'9", so it can't be him.
Seeking form amidst the void.
But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
I keep thinking LaVerne Cox or Rue Paul. No idea why as I don't think any of the clues point to them. Could be Jamie Fox in lifts. Or, sticking with the In Living Color route, could be Jim Carrey or 1 of the Wayans brothers/
