Actor Blu Mankuma has a calming presence onscreen--despite his imposing 6-foot, 230-pound body. In his lengthy career, Mankuma has appeared in over 150 roles on both television and film, and has worked extensively as a voice artist. He began his acting career on the TV films "The Plutonium Incident" and "Letters from Frank." From then on it seems filmmakers were eager to offer him roles--and Mankuma was just as eager to accept. Indeed, "veteran actor" hardly begins to describe the range and sheer quantity of Mankuma's onscreen work. His credits include such disparate films as the talking baby pic "Look Who's Talking" and Roland Emmerich's summer blockbuster "2012," not to mention the cop comedy "Another Stakeout" and the military drama "Cadence." And that only scratches the surface--because Mankuma also maintained a prolific TV career, with guest appearances on the teenage cop series "21 Jump Street," the conspiracy-minded "The X-Files," and the action show "MacGyver," to name but a few.
