Biography

The son of noted American landscape artist Neil Welliver, Titus Welliver won fans as Officer Jake Lowery, a cop who became enmeshed in an interracial love affair with his female partner on the Steven Bochco-produced "Brooklyn South" (CBS, 1997-98). Tall and lanky, with a rather long face dominated by heavy brows and piercing eyes, the actor received his training at NYU and quickly found work in low-budget, direct-to-video fare and on the New York stage. Welliver landed bit roles in high profile films like "Navy SEALs" (1990) and Oliver Stone's "The Doors" (1991) but his only significant film role to date was playing Chicago gangster Al Capone in 1991's "Mobsters." (Ironically, his first major TV role was as Capone's brother Ralph in the heavily fictionalized 1990 TNT TV-movie "The Last Capone"). Welliver fared better on the small screen playing an assortment of villains and cops in guest spots on such series as "L.A. Law," "The X-Files" and "NYPD Blue." After a recurring role as a police sergeant on "High Incident" (ABC. 1996) and another on "Murder One" (ABC, 1996-97), he was cast in the ensemble of "Brooklyn South." Welliver has also portrayed real-life figures B F Goodrich in "Rough Riders" (TNT, 1996) and Lincoln assassination co-conspirator Lewis Paine in "The Day Lincoln Was Shot" (TNT, 1998). It had also been announced that the actor would repeat his stage role as the junkie half-brother of an ex-con in "Riff Raff" (lensing 1998), written and directed by Laurence Fishburne.

"I've played a few cop characters in my career. I've played cops from Boston and New York, and they're all very, very different. There's procedural stuff that is somewhat the same, but the dress, the attitude, and the decorum is all different." - from www.esquire.com, March 28, 2015

.

"In every actor’s career, that are marks that you hit. If you want to be analagous with Shakespeare, in the beginning I’ll play Romeo, and then I’ll play Hamlet, and then I’ll play MacBeth and eventually make my way to Lear. So for me, I’ve been fortunate that there have been characters that have come along at certain points in my career that have not only moved my career forward, but have also challenged me to a certain degree, that have made me perhaps a better actor or a little bit smarter." - from www.thewrap.com, June 23, 2015
