      Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

      Highest Rated: 90% Tour De Pharmacy (2017)

      Lowest Rated: 11% The Mistress of Spices (2005)

      Birthday: Aug 22, 1967

      Birthplace: Islington, London, England, UK

      A tall, well-built and striking performer of African descent, London-born, Nigerian-raised Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was a physically imposing presence with a booming voice, cool exterior and impossible-to-ignore onscreen charisma. Working his way through higher education as a model, Akinnuoye-Agbaje headed for the States after earning his Master's degree in law and was quickly scooped up for the 1992 hit music videos "Giving Him Something He Can Feel" by En Vogue and "Love No Limit" by Mary J. Blige. Just bubbling under the surface, Akinnuoye-Agbaje did more modeling work and began to win acting roles in hits like "Congo" (1995) and "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" (1995). His unique look, compelling accent and penetrating stare would separate him from fellow performers, and he landed significant roles in the thriller "The Deadly Voyage" (HBO 1996) and an updated take on "Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (ABC 1997). His breakthrough came with a three-year arc as villainous drug dealer Simon Adebisi on edgy prison drama "Oz" (HBO 1997-2003). While appearing on "Oz," Akinnuoye-Agbaje also essayed the kinder, gentler cabbie Winston on the comedy-drama "Linc's" (Showtime 1998-2000), created by Tim Reid. During this period, he also appeared in cable biopic "Enslavement: The True Story of Fanny Kemble" (Showtime 2000) and the direct-to-video comedy "Kat & Allison" (2001). The over-the-top sequel "The Mummy Returns" (2001) offered Akinnuoye-Agbaje the opportunity to wow his largest big-screen audience yet as the bloodthirsty Lock-Nah, mastermind behind the scheme to reincarnate the mighty Imhotep. Key supporting roles in action blockbuster "The Bourne Identity" (2001) and hip hop-themed gangster drama "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" (2005) raised his screen identity prior to his TV return as the mysterious Mr. Eko on hit ABC drama "Lost" (ABC 2004-2010) in its second season. After his story arc on that complex series was completed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje returned his focus to films, beginning with a starring role in ensemble action hit "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009), followed by key roles in science fiction horror reboot "The Thing" (2011), British-made John Steinbeck adaptation "Best Laid Plans" (2012), Sylvester Stallone thriller "Bullet to the Head" (2013) and Marvel Cinematic Universe effort "Thor: The Dark World" (2013). Akinnuoye-Agbaje continued in this varied fashion, co-starring in films ranging from special effects blockbuster "Pompeii" (2013) and musical reboot "Annie" (2014) to Oscar-contender dramas "Trumbo" (2015) and "Concussion" (2015). Along with the starring voice role in animated action-adventure "Bilal" (2016), Akinnuoye-Agbaje co-starred as supervillain Killer Croc in DC Comics supervillain ensemble "Suicide Squad" (2016).
