Brett Davis who plays Mitchell "Mitch" Malone is an actor on Tyler Perry's hit drama on Oprah Winfrey Network. Davis has been on the series since Season 2 up to the present.

Mitch is the grandson of Mama Rose Malone, leader of the infamous Malone crime family. However, Mitch's lifestyle is different. He is one of the good guys. He chooses not to get involved in crimes unless he has to do so. Whenever he does get involved, it is to help out his friends.

Even though he does not do what his family does, he has a good relationship with them. Mitch is a very good friend to Benny and Candace Young, and he has used his family connections to help them on several occasions.

Mitch is a very handsome man with a smooth demeanor. That was evident when he talked to Jim Cryer about Candace. Mitch didn't raise his voice at all. Instead, he spoke in a calm and soothing voice and was able to convince Jim to leave Candace alone by reminding him that Mama Rose Malone is his grandmother and will do anything for him. Jim agreed then, but he is likely to change his mind when The Haves and the Have Nots returns next season. Listen to the conversation in the short video clip below.

Because of their love for each other, David's jealous ex-wife hired someone to blow up Erica's new car while she was in it. Erica was killed, and David suffered severe burns on his back. Of course, Veronica was never convicted of the crime.
