Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A strong screen presence with a distinctive baritone voice, actor Reg E. Cathey earned a solid reputation as a supporting player on several acclaimed HBO series.

The durable actor remained a constant TV presence in the years that followed "The Wire," with appearances on such popular programs as "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ), "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006- ) and "Person of Interest" (CBS,...
