Prior to being selected for the lead role in
FISHER, DEREK LUKE was relatively unknown except for appearances on the
television series, "Moesha" and "The King Of Queens." During
the casting process for ANTWONE FISHER, Luke's determination and
perseverance paid off when he caught the attention of first-time director,
Denzel Washington, amongst hundreds of other young hopefuls. A New Jersey native
and former employee at the Sony Pictures gift shop, Luke won the starring role

Bell Calloway, Orlando Jones, Lisa Bonet, Meagan Good and Salli Richardson.
In December 2002, Luke will be featured in a series of ads
