Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Few actors can say they got their start as child newscasters, but RonReaco Lee can. At the tender age of six, Lee was one of the hosts of "Kids Beat" (1983), a one-minute news digest that aired on TBS. The child actor then scored a small but visible role as a mute drummer boy in 1989â¿¿s "Glory," a big-budget, Oscar-winning biopic about the Civil Warâ¿¿s first African-American regiment. Being a part of such a highly visible, celebrated production helped boost Leeâ¿¿s burgeoning career. He became a frequent guest star on TV shows during the early 1990s, including the civil rights period drama "Iâ¿¿ll Fly Away" (1992) and the southern police saga "In the Heat of the Night" (1993). After a few years, he advanced to playing recurring roles in series such as the odd couple cop dramedy "The Good Guys" (2010). At the same time, the actor kept himself busy in the film world. He stepped up to a starring role as the cheerful Perry in the 1997 romantic comedy "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" and stayed in the comedy vein as he personal assistant to the uptight family patriarch played by Bernie Mac in 2005â¿¿s "Guess Who."
