Barry Shabaka Henley
If you have ever referred to character actor Barry Shabaka Henley as "that guy," you wouldn't be alone. But rather than a stab at his B-list status, this is a testament to his numerous projects and wide variety of roles since debuting on screen in the 1988 comedy "Nincompoop". Henley is most often recognized as the smooth-talking jazz trumpeter in Michael Mann's "Collateral" opposite Tom Cruise, as well as his other supporting roles in Mann-directed films including "Miami Vice" and "Ali". He is also a frequent player on television, with recurring roles in the super-powered drama "Heroes", the sci-fi show "FlashForward", and HBO's short-lived drama "Luck".
