Carl Lumbly was born in Minnesota, the son of Jamaican immigrants. His father was an avid reader, which inspired Lumbly's early appreciation for literature. After graduating from Macalester College with a degree in English, he landed a job writing for the Associated Press in Minneapolis. He also supplemented his income by doing freelance writing assignments for various periodicals and magazines.While on assignment for a story on Dudley Riggs' Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre, Lumbly attended a public audition and was handed an audition card. After a three-week audition process, the company offered him a coveted spot in its cast. He stayed for two years, doing improvisational comedy flavored with political satireLumbly moved to San Francisco, intending to continue his work as a journalist for Associated Press. Just two days after arriving in San Francisco, he came across a newspaper ad seeking "two black actors for South African political plays." He went to the audition and met the other actor already cast -- an unknown Danny Glover. Lumbly landed the part and toured with Glover in productions of Athol Fugard's "Sizwe Bansi is Dead" and "The Island."The plays brought Lumbly to Los Angeles, where he signed with an agent, and soon after moved to New York. He landed his first significant on-screen role in a TV movie-of-the-week, Cagney & Lacey (1981) (TV), which turned into the hit series. Lumbly starred as Det. Mark Petrie for the show's seven-year run.Lumbly has earned several awards and nominations for his work. His versatility spans a range of characters, from his NAACP Image Award-nominated work in TNT's Buffalo Soldiers (1997) (TV), produced by Glover, to a wealthy black entrepreneur in The Wedding (1998) (TV), starring opposite Halle Berry. Then there was "M.A.N.T.I.S." (1994), in which Lumbly played an independently wealthy paraplegic scientist/crimefighter, which marked the first black superhero on series television. He recently starred in the Showtime telefilm Just a Dream (2002), directed by Glover, about a 12-year-old doctor's son and his unlikely relationship with a rodeo cowboy/auto mechanic (Lumbly).Lumbly's extensive feature credits include his role opposite Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr. in Men of Honor (2000), portraying the father of the first black diver in U.S. Navy history. In Everybody's All-American (1988) with Jessica Lange and Dennis Quaid, Lumbly starred as a former football player affected by the segregated South. Other film credits include How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998), South Central (1992), Pacific Heights (1990), To Sleep with Anger (1990), The Bedroom Window (1987), The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984) and Caveman (1981).Lumbly portrays CIA agent Marcus Dixon, former field partner and supervisor to agent Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner), on ABC's fast-paced drama series "Alias" (2001). The fourth season promises more surprising twists and turns as Dixon again joins Sydney in the field along with agents Jack Bristow (Victor Garber) and Michael Vaughn (Michael Vartan) for a special black operations division -- a team handpicked by former adversary Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin).Lumbly most recently appeared as Father in ABC's telefilm remake of the 1972 classic, Sounder (2003) (TV). Directed by Kevin Hooks (one of the stars of the original film), "Sounder" tells the story of a 1930s sharecropper family trying to survive under devastatingly difficult circumstances.Lumbly can also be heard as the voice of action hero J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter, in the Cartoon Network's animated series "Justice League" (2001). The series follows the adventures of the greatest superhero team of all time.On television, Lumbly has made numerous guest-starring appearances on such series as "The West Wing" (1999), "ER" (1994), "The X Files" (1993) and "L.A. Law" (1986). He also starred in the telefilms The Color of Friendship (2000) (TV) (directed by Kevin Hooks), Little Richard (2000) (TV), On Promised Land (1994) (TV), The Ditchdigger's Daughters (1997) (TV) and Nightjohn (1996) (TV).Lumbly is married to actress Vonetta McGee, whom he met on "Cagney & Lacey" (1982) when she was cast as his wife. He is a family man with a teenage son. Despite his busy schedule, Lumbly works out regularly to keep in shape for his demanding role on "Alias." In his limited free time, Lumbly enjoys running sprints on the beach, playing basketball and practicing his golf swing.
