Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

While Columbus Short kicked off his professional performing career in the late '90s as a touring ensemble dancer in "Stomp," he became a familiar face in TV and film throughout the following decade. Background roles in popular flicks like "You Got Served" (2004) and "War of the Worlds" (2005) helped land Short his breakout turn as DJ Williams in the surprise hit film "Stomp the Yard" (2007). But as his Hollywood star shone brighter, he refused to abandon his career onstage: Short collaborated with Britney Spears as a choreographer on the pop star's elaborately staged Onyx Hotel Tour in the mid-2000s. In addition to a recurring role on the short-lived, Aaron Sorkin-penned series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" (NBC, 2006-07), Short starred in such high-profile films as "Quarantine" (2008), "Armored" (2009) and "The Losers" (2010), paving the way for his crucial role as devoted lawyer Harrison Wright on the well-received political drama "Scandal" (ABC, 2012-).
