Bonus Trivia

.

Originally planned on becoming a musician, and only began taking acting jobs to help bolster his notoriety as a singer. He eventually switched career path when he was accepted into Yale University's graduate school of drama.

.

Worked as a singing waiter on lunch and dinner cruises and as a pizza delivery man before finding success as a performer.

.

Was the producers' first choice to play the role of Mr. Eko on "Lost," but he was unavailable due to his prior shooting commitments.

.

Originally read for the role of Bunk on "The Wire," even though he would eventually be cast as Lt. Cedric Daniels.

.

"My career was pretty much a steady climb; I didn't really flatline much. When I did 'The Wire,' that's when I thought all the doors would open, but that's when things flatlined. I had a really hard time just getting seen for film, which was the next step." - from The A.V. Club, November 3, 2008
