VING RHAMES received a Golden Globe Award for his stellar performance as fight promoter Don King in HBO's Don King: Only In America. He also starred as an escaped convict turned hijacker in last summer's action-thriller ConAir. Prior to that, he starred as a drifter-turned-reluctant-savior in Rosewood, directed by John Singleton and as a South African drug lord in Dangerous Ground, opposite Ice Cube and Elizabeth Hurley.

The actor recently starred as one of four men involved in a bungled museum heist in Bodycount and following Out of Sight he co-starred with Gwyneth Paltrow and David Hyde Pierce in Duets.

The actor first gained prominence as the shadowy drug dealer Marcellus Wallace in Quentin Tarantino's critically lauded Pulp Fiction. He subsequently starred in Mission Impossible as a no-nonsense computer whiz and then as the bouncer/confidant to Demi Moore's character in Striptease.

Born in Harlem, Rhames attended New York High School of the Performing Arts--the only student from his junior high to be accepted into the prestigious school. He went on to graduate from the Juilliard School of Drama in 1983. His classical training led him to perform many works by Shakespeare, Ibsen, Moliere and Chekhov. He appeared on Broadway in The Boys of Winter, and off-Broadway in Map of the World, Short Eyes, Richard III and Ascension Day. He also starred in Ajax, directed by Peter Sellars and The Road, directed by Wole Soyinka at Chicago's Goodman Theater.

Rhames diverse film credits include Homicide, Dave, The Saint of Fort Washington, Jacob's Ladder, Drop Squad, Bound by Honor, The Long Walk Home, Flight of the Intruder, Patty Hearst and Kiss of Death.

He is currently in pre-production preparing for his title role in the Sonny Listen Story.
