Rest In Power: muMs da Schemer / Craig Grant (December 18, 1968 – March 24, 2021)

Craig Grant (December 18, 1968 – March 24, 2021)

Craig Grant, known as muMs da Schemer, was an American poet and actor best known for his role as Arnold “Poet” Jackson on the HBO series Oz.

“I love words,” he told The Indianapolis Star in 2001. “Anybody ever wanted to buy me anything for Christmas or my birthday, they can buy me a dictionary. The bigger, the better.”

Mr. Grant died on Wednesday in Wilmington, N.C., where he was filming the Starz series “Hightown,” in which he had a recurring role. He was 52.

His manager, Sekka Scher, said the cause was complications of diabetes.
