Delroy Lindo /
He was retirement-bound until the unthinkable happened.
Prolific and versatile film, television and stage actor Delroy Lindo stars as Latimer King, the experienced FBI agent who takes a personal interest and delays retirement for a complicated case in NBC's new drama "Kidnapped." "Kidnapped" is a high-stakes serialized thriller in which the 15-year-old son of a wealthy Upper East Side family is kidnapped and everyone is a suspect. The series focuses on the elaborate, triangulated game between the kidnappers, FBI and law enforcement, and the private negotiating team contracted by this perhaps not-so-picture-perfect family.
Lindo most recently appeared in the film "Domino." Prior to that, he had memorable roles in David Mamet's "Heist," co-starring Gene Hackman and Danny DeVito, and as Mr. Rose in the Academy Award-winning "The Cider House Rules." Lindo garnered critical acclaim for his role as Rodney Little in Spike Lee's drama "Clockers" and also worked with Lee on "Crooklyn" and "Malcolm X" (the latter earned him an NAACP Image Award nomination).
Lindo's long filmography also includes such features as "Wondrous Oblivion," "The Core," "The Last Castle," "Sahara," "The One," "Gone in Sixty Seconds" (opposite Nicolas Cage and Robert Duvall) and "Ransom" for which he received another NAACP Image Award nomination for his role opposite Mel Gibson. His credits also include "A Life Less Ordinary," "Get Shorty," "Broken Arrow," "Feeling Minnesota," "Romeo Must Die," "Mr. Jones," "L'Exil du Roi Behanzin," "The Devil's Advocate," "Bright Angel" and "Mountains of the Moon."
And while Lindo makes his television series debut in "Kidnapped," he has accumulated numerous acclaimed television movie credits. He was most recently seen in HBO's acclaimed and award-winning "Lackawanna Blues" and in "The Exonerated" for Court TV. He also appeared in the drama "Profoundly Normal" and starred as Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas in the Peabody Award-winning "Strange Justice." He portrayed baseball legend Satchel Paige in the HBO sports drama "Soul of the Game" as well as Arctic explorer Matthew Henson in "Glory & Honor" and appeared in "First Time Felon" on HBO.
On Broadway, Lindo appeared in August Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" (for which he received both Tony and Drama Desk nominations) and "Master Harold and the Boys," which he performed on Broadway as well as on a national tour. Lindo also appeared in the Kennedy Center and Wilshire Theatre productions of "A Raisin in the Sun" (Helen Hayes Award nomination and an NAACP Image Award for Best Actor).
