MORRIS CHESTNUT

 

 

Having given up his dream of playing professional football, Morris Chestnut received immediate recognition in his first feature role as Ricky Baker, the promising young athlete cut tragically down in John Singleton's powerful coming of age film, "Boyz N the Hood" (1991).

His impressive debut led to supporting work in "In the Line of Duty: Street War" (NBC, 1992) and the title role of the Disney Channel's "The Ernest Green Story" (1993), as well as a part in Matty Rich's feature "The Inkwell" (1994). Chestnut showed his action hero chops for "Under Siege II: Dark Territory" (1995), with Steven Seagal, and was one of the Navy SEAL recruits alongside Demi Moore in "G.I. Jane" (1997).

His first experience as a series regular came in the short-lived NBC sitcom "Out All Night" (1992-93), starring Patti LaBelle, and he returned to series work (this time in a drama) for ABC's "C-16" (1997-98), playing an FBI recruit fresh out of training. He also acted in Malcolm Lee's directorial debut, "Best Man" (1999).
