Actor Kelvin Davis is known for his roles in: Tower Heist (2011), For Charity’s Sake (2001), Bocce Balls (2005), The Wire (2002)
A native of Merritt, NC, Kelvin graduated from Pamlico County High School, and then he attended the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for a semester, before transferring to North Carolina A & T in the Spring of 1980 on a full football scholarship. Football was high on his list of priorities, but a career in football never panned out for him.
After realizing football was not his calling, Kelvin embarked on his modeling career by doing area fashion shows in Washington, D.C. His modeling career led him to a career in acting.
Life as an Actor:
“Acting started slow with a lot of extra work mainly with Law and Order SVU,during this time I booked a pepsi commercial as an forklift guy,I studied with Ted Bardy in between time before moving to Philly to stand in for Andre Brauear when we shooting HACK on CBS,overall I’m a real nice guy who loves to work and who gets along with everybody that has an ability to smile.”
2003 proved to be the year for this talented actor after landing a role on NBC’s Law and Order Criminal Intent as a Swat Captain.
It was his role on The Wire that led him to progressively larger roles. After his work on The Wire, Kelvin was now in demand and has since been seen in several feature films; The Salon, The Italian Job, Men in Black 3, Spiderman 3, Tower Heist. More recently he is now most known for his roles in Deception, the CBS network series Person of Interest, and the HBO series Veep. See Full Bio
