Well continuing on the theme of crime dramas we have Gary Dourdan from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. (Note that this is the original... not CSI: Miami, or CSI: New York, or CSI: Seattle, or CSI: Puxatawny.) Gary plays Warrick Brown, the only Vegas native amongst the group (with a gambling problem as proof.)
What you might not know is that Gary played Janet Jackson's love interest in the music video Again, appeared on the show A Different World and is a father of two.
Even more interesting? He has two albums available on iTunes, performing under the name Kolade!
