Khary Payton stars in NBC's comedy "Go On" as Don.

Khary Payton first got the acting bug after winning a nationwide talent competition in high school. As a teenager he began doing stand-up comedy at small comedy clubs, Standup New York Comedy Store and The Village Gate.

Following graduation from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, he performed in a number of Dallas Theatre Center productions, including "Pericles," "Tartuffe," "Macbeth" and "A Christmas Carol," among many others.

feature films, Payton has sometimes had difficulty keeping his head — in fact in two of them, "Dracula II: The Ascension" and Dimension's "Hellraiser: Hellworld," his character's head was cut off. However, in the independent films "Swatters" and "Latter Days," his character managed to keep it all together.

On television, Payton is most proud of his series regular role in the Cartoon Network's animated series, "Teen Titans," for which he originated the voice of Cyborg. Other character voices include Kaldur'ahm in "Young Justice," both Manny Armstrong and Hex in the "Ben 10" franchise, and Ripcord in "G.I. Joe: Renegades," among others. And, if you've ever played any number of video games including "The Sims," "Metal Gear Solid" or "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance," you know him.

Other television credits include a series regular role in ABC's "Emily's Reasons Why Note," a recurring role in the daytime soap opera "General Hospital," and guest starring roles in "Medium," "The Shield" and "JAG."
