That Guy Actor of the Week: Carl Lumbly

Don’t you love it when you see a guy in some random movie from 1990 only to see his face pop up more and more over the years?  I first saw Carl Lumbly as a perspective tenant in the movie Pacific Heights.

He had a very small role in that movie but has a quality that for some reason stuck with me.  And ever since that time I’ve seen Lumbly pop up from time to time in a movie or a television show.   He had a pretty nice run in the 90s and now he’s doing mostly television.

Personally I liked him best in the movie Men of Honor.  He also does a lot of voice over work.  Here’s to you Carl.

He definitely has a cool voice.
