Isiah Whitlock Jr. stars in "Lucky 7" on ABC as Bob Harris.

As a young man hailing from South Bend, Indiana, Isiah Whitlock Jr. attended Southwest Minnesota State University through a football scholarship. Injuries compelled his athletic dream to be put on a shelf. One day, on a whim, he decided to walk into the university's drama department, where they were holding auditions for Arthur Miller's "The Crucible." He was cast and became a dramatic staple at SMSU.

Upon graduation, he moved to San Francisco, becoming a valuable student, teacher and member of the prestigious American Conservatory Theater. Next stop, New York City, where he began to amass a variety of estimable roles from a sympathetic doctor in Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas," to his captivating portrayal of Joe in Christopher Shinn's renowned off-Broadway play "Four," for which he was nominated for the Lucille Lortelle Award as Outstanding Featured Actor.

Isiah can boast memorable guest appearances on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Law & Order," along with noteworthy characters developed in Spike Lee's "25th Hour," Peter Hedges' highly-acclaimed film "Pieces of April," and the character Ronald Wilkes in Miguel Arteta's "Cedar Rapids." Of particular note, he played the recurring role of Senator Clay Davis on HBO's critically acclaimed drama series "The Wire." He has recurred in AMC's conspiracy thriller "Rubicon" and made guest appearances in "Veep," "Louie," "Smash," "The Good Wife," "Chaos," "Meet the Browns," "New Amsterdam," "NYPD Blue.," "Ed" and "Third Watch."
