Born in Los Angeles, California, he first became well-known to audiences when he appeared for several years opposite Diahann Carroll on the groundbreaking television series Julia. He also starred as Martin Luther King, Jr. in the miniseries King. In 1972, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for Sounder,at the time being only the third African American to ever earn a nomination for this award. The other two were Dorothy Dandridge and Sidney Poitier.
