His acting credits vary from a role in the miniseries Roots and a guest stint on How I Met Your Mother, as well as a Golden Globe nominated performance in the film Funny Lady.

Vereen is asking a court to terminate his estranged wife's ability to collect spousal support.

Do you think he's going to change his name to Benita Vereen after the divorce?
