A handsome former Broadway musical performer, Dorian Harewood was encouraged to pursue a dramatic career by Bette Davis when they co-starred in "Miss Moffat," a 1974 pre-Broadway tryout of a musical based on "The Corn Is Green." He then gave forceful performances on stage, most notably in David Rabe's Vietnam drama "Streamers" (1976) and "The Mighty Gents" (1978), before making his film debut in "Sparkle" (1976). His feature career never really took-off, despite appearances in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" (1987) and two John Schlesinger films, "The Falcon and the Snowman" (1985) and "Pacific Heights" (1990).

The small screen has been more hospitable. Since his debut in "Foster and Laurie" (CBS, 1975), Harewood has been almost constantly employed on TV. He has been a regular on several series, notably "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" (CBS, 1990-92) and the NBC sci-fi drama "Viper" (1994). Other major credits include the miniseries "Roots: The Next Generation" (ABC, 1979), "Beulah Land" (NBC, 1980) and "Amerika" (ABC, 1987). Harewood has found a second career providing character voices for animated series, including "The Tick" (Fox, 1994- ), "Aladdin" (CBS, 1994- ) and "Savage Dragon" (USA, 1995- ).
