Throughout the 2000s, Dorsey appeared in a wide range of television and film projects, including "Juwanna Mann" (2002), "Drumline" (2002), "Yes, Dear" (CBS, 2000-06), "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-11), and "The Blind Side" (2009). In 2010 Dorsey landed a recurring role on crime drama "Rizzoli & Isles" (TNT 2010-16).
