Brian White stars in "Beauty and the Beast" on The CW as Joe Profeta.

On the silver screen, Brian White stars in Tyler Perry's romantic drama "Good Deeds" (Lionsgate) as Perry's brother, Walter Deeds, with the ensemble cast of Thandie Newton, Gabrielle Union, Phylicia Rashad, Rebecca Romijn, Eddie Cibrian and Jamie Kennedy. White also recently starred in the horror film "The Cabin in the Woods," alongside Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth and Anna Hutchison.

Brian White has showcased his talent with a multitude of characters in different genres of film. In 2011 he starred in the Bollywood romantic comedy film "Politics of Love," opposite Mallika Sherawat, Loretta Devine and Ruby Dee. The romantic comedy follows the fortunes of a campaign team caught up in a whirlwind of euphoric romances during Obama's presidential push.

On the small screen, White recently played the recurring role of Marcus in the Emmy-award nominated drama series "Men of a Certain Age" which stars Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula as three best friends in their late forties dealing with the realities of middle age. White is almost a nemesis to Braugher's character, Owen, as he constantly outshines him at the car lot where they are both salesmen. 

In 2009 White starred in "Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All by Myself" (Lionsgate) opposite Taraji P. Henson. He also appeared opposite Channing Tatum and Terrance Howard in "Fighting" (Rogue Pictures) and alongside World Wrestling Entertainment superstar John Cena in the film "12 Rounds" (Fox Atomic ). In 2008 he starred alongside Jason Statham in the fantasy-adventure epic "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale" (Fox International). White also starred in the musical-drama "Stomp the Yard" (Screen Gems) and opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Disney's box office hit "The Game Plan." Other notable film credits include the box office hit "The Family Stone" (Fox 2000) and Independent Spirit Award-nominated film "Brick" (Focus Features/Universal).  

A Boston native and son of a licensed financial consultant mother and professional basketball player father (legend JoJo White of the Boston Celtics), White was instilled with the importance of both sports and education throughout his childhood. He studied Political Science, Psychology and Theatre at Dartmouth College. He continued to play football and lacrosse throughout his college years and upon graduation was signed by both an NFL (New England Patriots) and NLL (Boston Blazers) team. In 2000, due to an injury, White made the transition from professional athlete to investment broker. Later on, a chance meeting with an entertainment executive led him to leave the world of finance to begin a new career in modeling and eventually acting.  

White is most recognizable to television audiences as Detective Tavon Garris on the award-winning FX crime drama "The Shield." Other television credits include CBS's "Moonlight," UPN's "Moesha," "The Parkers" and "Second Time Around," as well as MTV's "Spyder Games."  

He recently returned from touring the United States in David E. Talbert's stage show "What My Husband Doesn't Know" alongside Michelle Williams, Ann Nesby, Clifton Davis and Morris Chestnut

White also has a philanthropic side to him and has co-founded a multitude of different ventures including the Helping Hands Celebrity Weekend (HHCW) in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, which creates a unique arena where members of the entertainment industry, professional athletes and corporate leaders can unite and support one another's charitable efforts; Black Carpenter, which is a multi-platform youth empowerment brand that includes a book, feature documentary and speaking tour designed to create a "tool box" that represents the essential life skills for building a successful next generation; and a professional dance company/community youth outreach organization called Phunk Phenomenon Urban Dance Theatre. He is also a founding partner of a full-service film, television and broadband production company based in Los Angeles, California.
