Bio

Gary Dourdan is a Haitian-American actor best known for his role as Warrick Brown on the television crime procedural CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, from 2000-2008.

Dourdan and his family moved to Willingboro, New Jersey when he was in his youth. At this time his interests included acting, music and martial arts.

Later Dourdan moved to New York City and worked as a doorman at a rehearsal studio where he met some of Manhattan's promising young artists.

Green-eyed Dourdan got his first break when Debbie Allen cast him as Shazza Zulu on A Different World, based on a tape of him in an avant-garde play.

He had a recurring role on the Showtime series Soul Food until he nabbed the part of Warrick Brown on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He was also the host of a BET Spoken Word show entitled the Lyric Cafe.

He starred in the movie Alien: Resurrection (1994) and had a small role in the movie Thursday (1998), starring Thomas Jane.

He also appeared in Janet Jackson's video for her 1993 hit "Again", as her love interest.

He played a small part in the episode "Never on Sunday" in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

In 2007 he had a small role in the film Perfect Stranger, as the protagonist's boyfriend.

While getting his acting career off the ground, he modeled mens clothing for Marithe and Francois Girbaud. He appeared in many of their print and catalogue pieces.

Dourdan was briefly married to Roshumba Williams, and he has a daughter, Nyla and a son, Lyric from other relationships.

He recently joined DMC on stage at Live 8 at Park Place in Barrie, Ontario, and also co-sang the lyrics to the theme song of The Jeffersons at the 2005 Emmy Awards.
