Mike Colter began acting by starting a drama club in high school and becoming the president of the club. Upon receiving his MFA degree, Mike moved to L.A. and after a few months he was able to grab a co-star on Spin City with Charlie Sheen followed by guest stars on E.R. and The Parkers. Mike then moved back to NYC to work in the theater, but as luck would have it Hollywood came calling again. He landed a role in 2005 Best Picture winner Million Dollar Baby opposite Clint Eastwood, Hillary Swank and Morgan Freeman. The following year he received exceptional reviews for his turn as CJ Memphis a guitar-playing blues singer in The 2005 revival of the Pulitzer prize winning “A Soldier’s Play.” The play had been a big off-Broadway success and was made into a movie starring Denzel Washington and many of Hollywood’s up-and-coming African-American actors in 1984. Mike had the lead role in Marvel’s Luke Cage.
