Biography

Kevin Hooks is an American film and television actor, director, and producer. Hooks first gained notice for his portrayal of the son of a poor Southern sharecropper in the 1972 film "Sounder," a role that he would revisit in the 2003 remake for the "Wonderful World of Disney" TV series. He found steady work in such late '70s films as "Take Down" and "The Greatest Thing That Almost Happened," and in 1978 he landed a breakout role as conflicted high school basketball player Morris Thorpe on the award-winning series "The White Shadow." His later film appearances include roles in the sci-fi comedy "Innerspace" and the TV movie "Glory & Honor." Since 1983 Hooks has also worked as a TV and film director, and during the '80s he helmed multiple episodes of "St. Elsewhere," "Alien Nation," and "V." He earned several Emmy nominations for his work on the "ABC Afterschool Special" TV series, and found steady work directing films like "Passenger 57" and "Strictly Business." Hooks returned to series television in the early 2000s and has since directed multiple episodes of critically acclaimed series "Lost," "24," and "NYPD Blue." Hooks has also served as executive producer on a number of primetime series, including "Prison Break" and "Human Target."
