Bio

Reginald Ballard is an actor and comedian best known for his television sitcom roles as "Brotherman from the fifth flo'" in Martin (1993-1995) and as W.B. in The Bernie Mac Show, from 2001-2006.

Ballard also co-starred as the paramour of Suzanne Crumb on Crumbs, in 2006.

As early as the 4th grade, Ballard idolised Bruce Lee and knew that he wanted to be a performer. Natural athletic prowess gained him a full football scholarship to Southern Methodist University, where he was a theatre major.

Senior year found him at the University of Missouri, where he continued to play football, but where he scored a touchdown in the university's production of A Soldiers Play in the role of C.J. Memphis.

Spurning overtures from pro-football, Ballard headed to Hollywood to pursue his dream of acting.

His first Hollywood job was as an extra on the Stallone film Lockup. An agent and a SAG card later, Ballard landed a speaking role on The Trials of Rosie O'Neil.

He went on to create the role of Broman on the Martin show.

While many of his roles have been comedic, Ballard describes himself as a trained actor playing the role of a comic.

Ballard is married with two children. He enjoys golf (daily, if time allowed), collects Blaxploitation Movies and enjoys watching Clint Eastwood westerns.

His birth date is 13 October.
