In 2001, Omari married actress JoNell Kennedy. Shortly afterward, Omari landed his earliest recurring part on the revival series "Dragnet" (ABC 2003-04) and "Joan of Arcadia" (CBS 2003-05). Omari made his feature film debut with a small role in "Constellation" (2005), a drama film costarring Zoe Saldana, Billy Dee Williams, and Gabrielle Union. In 2006, Omari and Kennedy's marriage ended in divorce.
