Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Gary Anthony Williams has been involved with acting and comedy since he was a young man. His first credit came on late 80s TV series "In the Heat of the Night," a Southern police drama filmed near his hometown. After moving to Los Angeles in 1998, he scored a bit part in the 1999 Arnold Schwarzenegger apocalypse thriller "End of Days." He is often cast as an ironically intellectual character, a trend that started with his role as the "Smart Brother" in Eddie Griffin's 2002 film "Undercover Brother." That part led to perhaps Williams' most visible film role: Tarik, the resigned, extremely well read African-American prisoner blamed by the cops for everything in the successful 2004 stoner comedy "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle." Williams has enjoyed success on television as well, doing both animated and live-action shows. He had recurring roles on the Frankie Muniz/Bryan Cranston comedy "Malcolm in the Middle" and Adult Swim's "Saul of the Mole Men" in the mid-2000s. A versatile actor, Williams also provided voices for many animated series for both adults and children, including the comic-strip adaptation "The Boondocks" and the Disney Channel's "Special Agent Oso."
