Having performed with Pegasus in his early career (e.g., Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Kiss of the Spiderwpman), Harry is widely-regarded as one of the hardest working men in Hollywood. At 6’4”, he is known for his commanding stature, baritone voice, diligent work ethic and multiple talents.
His prolific film and television career includes recent roles in “Man of Steel” and NBC’s upcoming drama, “The Blacklist”. He has also had leading roles in “Ray”, “The Matrix: Reloaded”, “The Matrix: Revolutions”, “Barbershop 2”, “Love and Basketball” , “The Human Stain” and “State of Play.” His television career includes roles in the Golden Globe nominated ABC television show “Commander in Chief”, the FOX hit series “24”, ER” , “Diagnosis Murder and the FOX series “Dollhouse”.
In addition to his distinguished film and television career, Harry has also starred in, or directed, staged productions across the country. In fact, in 2001, he was part of the first American company to be invited to the Royal Shakespeare Company in the production of “Cymbeline”. Harry made his Broadway debut in 2007 as the lead character in August Wilson’s final play, “Radio Golf”, which was nominated for a Tony Award.
