      Roger Robinson

      Highest Rated: 89% H. (2014)

      Lowest Rated: 5% Meteor (1979)

      Birthday: May 2, 1940

      Birthplace: Seattle, Washington, USA

      Tony Award-winning actor Roger Robinson made his Broadway debut in 1969 in "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?" opposite Al Pacino. Just two years later, he made his foray into film with a supporting role in the medical drama "Believe in Me." He'd go on to balance work on stage and screen and earn acclaim in both fields. In 1996, he snagged his first Tony nomination for his performance in August Wilson's "Seven Guitars," the 1940s installment of his Century Cycle. Robinson would ultimately appear in six of Wilson's 10 plays, which chronicled the experiences of African-Americans in 20th-century America. In 2009, Robinson took home the Tony for his work in the revival of Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come and Gone," the second play in the series. The skilled performer was also awarded the Richard Seff Award, which honors an actor over the age of 50 who has excelled in a Broadway role; he is the first African-American to have achieved this distinction. Robinson has garnered honors for his film work as well. In the urban drama "Brother to Brother," he played a gay homeless man who was once a part of the Harlem Renaissance. His earnest and gripping portrayal earned him a nod from the Independent Spirit Awards and a Grand Jury Award from L.A. Outfest.
