After developing a prolific and acclaimed career on the stage, actor Jeffrey Wright quietly worked his way into the public consciousness in chameleon-like fashion, playing a wide range of roles in features and on television. Though he spent several years honing his craft off-Broadway and in regional theater, Wright staked his reputation with a Tony Award-winning performance in the widely acclaimed play, "Angels in America: Perestroika," which he later reprised almost a decade later in the highly lauded HBO miniseries. In between the play and the six-part movie, Wright built a resume that included deft performances as such divergent historical figures as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jean-Michel Basquiat, as well as an array of strong supporting roles in Woody Allen's "Celebrity" (1998) and "Shaft" (2000). After earning an Emmy for "Angels in America," Wright had finally broken through to the mainstream, earning meatier parts in "Syriana" (2005), "Casino Royale" (2006) and "W" (2008). The versatile actor continued to genre hop, jumping from the musical biopic "Cadillac Records" (2008) to the sci-fi thriller "Source Code" (2011) to the prescient political drama "The Ides of March" (2011) with impressive ease. During this period, he also gained mainstream success in the blockbuster "The Hunger Games" franchise, Pixar hit "The Good Dinosaur" (2015) and science-fiction cable drama "Westworld" (HBO 2016- ). While not the marquee draw of some of his contemporaries, Wright could always be counted upon to deliver a performance on par with the very best.
