Rockmond Dunbar has mesmerized viewers on the big screen as well as on the small. Starting with a series regular role Steven Spielberg's "Earth 2," Dunbar has worked steadily over the years in feature films and television series. Named as one of "Television's 50 Sexiest Stars of All Time" by TV Guide for his role as Kenny Chadway in the acclaimed Showtime drama series "Soul Food," Dunbar is also known for his work as a regular on the Fox TV series "Prison Break" where he played the tough, mysterious character C-Note. A true renaissance man, he has hypnotized his audience not only theatrically, but in all realms of art. From his provocative mixed-media exhibit, "ARTHERAPY," to his powerfully unforgettable guest appearance in Dylan McDermott's directing debut of "The Practice," Dunbar is undoubtedly one of Hollywood's hottest stars.
With the work on "Earth 2" under his belt, Dunbar arrived on the Hollywood scene, and it was only one short month before he landed recurring roles on many TV series. To his credit, he now has had many guest starring and recurring on such shows as "Felicity," "The Pretender," "Good News," "Two Guys and a Girl," "G. vs. E," "North Shore," "Girlfriends," "Shark," "CSI: Miami," "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice" and "The Defenders" just to name a few. He has also starred in the TNT series "Heartland."
Dunbar experienced yet another career boost when he secured leading roles in various independent films including "Jada," "Punks," and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" with Robert Downey, Jr. He was also cast in the Tyler Perry film "The Family That Preys" working alongside award-winning actors Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard.
Dunbar boasts writing, producing and directing credits. He directed his first full-length feature film, "Pastor Brown," and is currently completing writing the TV series based on the film. In 2007 he starred and produced the independent feature film "Dirty Laundry" with Loretta Devine. In 2004, he directed and produced a short film for Showtime, "The Great Commission."
To capitalize upon his success and growing recognition as a filmmaker, Dunbar formed Flypaper Entertainment with his producing partner, Carol Shine, to create film and television projects; Flypaper is currently developing the series "Safe House" with ISH Entertainment as well several other narrative and reality series.
