Bio

Lester Speight is a former American football player who has had subsequent careers as a professional wrestler and then actor, best known to international television viewers for his recurring role as Calvin Scott in the sitcom My Wife and Kids, from 2003-2005.

Speight is known to Americans for his portrayal of Terry Tate: Office Linebacker in a series of Reebok commercials that first aired during Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003.

The spots feature Speight, a former All-American Football player himself, as a linebacker charged with the no-holds barred enforcement of office policies. The commercials achieved much critical acclaim and were ranked the most watched of the Super Bowl by The Hollywood Reporter.

The popular character recently made a return appearance in a series of ads campaign in support of voting. Amongst the Office Linebacker's new tackles included former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

His television work includes guest starring appearance on Prison Break, Bones and Cold Case. On the silver screen he has appeared in hit films such as Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Norbit, and Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.

Speight is also recognised by fans of the Gears of War video game series for the X-Box 360. Speight won the G-Phoria award for Best Voiceover in 2007 by the G4 Network for his performance as Augustus Cole (AKA Cole Train), a character that was modeled after Speight and includes subtle allusions to the Office Linebacker.
