Known to many simply as Leon, Leon Robinson began his career in the early '80s, making several small appearances in various projects like the mini-series The Women of Brewster Place and the Tom Cruise movie All the Right Moves. He would continue to make memorable supporting appearances over the course of his career, with unique roles like soldier Killer Bee in the civil war drama Colors, and the statue of a saint that comes to life in the controversial music video for the Madonna song "Like a Prayer." Leon kept this up throughout the 2000s, as well, showing up everywhere from the acclaimed series Oz to the 50 Cent movie Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
