After establishing himself as an excellent stage performer, actor Delroy Lindo was noted for his remarkable ability to balance both anger and charm while portraying a variety of onscreen villains in films like "Clockers" (1995) and "Get Shorty" (1995). Audiences first discovered Lindo in Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" (1992), at a time when the actor was trying to gain a foothold in Hollywood. It was Lee who gave Lindo several opportunities to showcase his range - playing a caring but misguided father in "Crooklyn" (1994) and a charming drug dealer in "Clockers." With the doors opened wide after "Get Shorty," Lindo struggled with another Hollywood trap - being typecast. But instead of portraying strictly amiable bad guys, he broke away with riveting portrayals of historical figures like Satchel Paige in "Soul of the Game" (HBO, 1996), explorer Mattew Henson in "Glory & Honor" (TNT, 1997), and Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in "Strange Justice" (Showtime, 1998). By the time he gave a memorable supporting turn in the multi-award winning "Lackawanna Blues" (HBO, 2005), Lindo was established as a versatile performer who excelled in a wide range of film, television and stage roles. Shifting to television work, Lindo starred in a number of short-lived series, from procedural drama "Kidnapped" (NBC 2006-07) and crime drama "The Chicago Code" (Fox 2011) to science fiction fantasy "Believe" (NBC 2014), before finding success with a supporting role in legal drama "The Good Fight" (CBS All Access 2017- ).
