Kevin Phillips stars in "Red Tails," opposite Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., as Leon "Neon" Edwards. Phillips says, "Neon is a competitor and a gambler. He's obsessed with luck and he feels like he has a direct connection to God. He's also obsessed with flying. Merging those obsessions is what makes him unique."

Kevin Phillips kick started his acting career in the off-Broadway play "A Little Piece of Life," directed by William Hicks. His first big screen appearance came in 2004 in Queen Latifah's comedy, "The Cookout." Since then, Phillips' film credits include films such as "Pride," "Notorious," "American Gun," "Blood and Bone," "S.W.A.T.: Firefight" and "Rock the Paint," which premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. He's also had multiple guest starring roles in FOX's hit medical drama "House."

Beyond acting, Phillips is in the midst of writing and producing a trans-media project titled "Echoes." The first pieces — an eight-part web series and graphic novel — will be released in early 2012. The Echoes video game and feature film will debut in 2013.

Outside of work, Phillips is an active humanitarian. He founded the Living Legend Foundation (LLF), which is dedicated to helping provide housing solutions for the homeless and provide them the tools they need to get back on their feet.
