While actor Ving Rhames won a Golden Globe Award for his starring role as the infamous boxing promoter in "Don King: Only in America" (HBO, 1997), he was generally known as a supporting player on the big screen. Rhames' breakout role as crime kingpin Marsellus Wallace in Quentin Tarantino's unexpected cult hit, "Pulp Fiction" (1994), brought the actor his first major attention, while independent film fans had a taste of his imposing physicality and brooding air in earlier films, including "The Saint of Fort Washington" (1993) and David Mamet's "Homicide" (1991). The actor went on to enjoy a steady screen career and continuous acclaim for his multi-dimensional sidekicks, supporting Tom Cruise in the "Mission Impossible" franchise (1996, 2000, 2006), and giving strong performances in films like "Out of Sight" (1998) and "Con Air" (1997), where, among his strengths, was lending a philosophical bent to career criminals and imbuing figures of authority with realistic flaws.
