Lyriq Bent stars in "Rookie Blue" on ABC in the recurring role of Frank Best.

After graduating college with high honors, Lyriq Bent originally began his career as a Computer Graphic Technician. Bent's plans, however, were short-lived as he decided to take up acting on a dare. Since then, his career has gained considerable momentum with numerous film and television appearances already under his belt. Bent's eclectic mix of roles and rising popularity has earned kudos in both his native Canada and the U.S. Accordingly, Playback Magazine has gone so far as to even nominate Bent as one of Canada's top rising stars.

In addition to landing a co-starring role on Lifetime's drama series "Angela's Eyes" from the producers of "Crash," Bent guest-starred on the CBS series "CSI: Miami," opposite David Caruso, the UPN series "Kevin Hill," opposite Taye Diggs and USA Network's "Kojak," opposite Ving Rhames. Additionally, the versatile actor has had recurring roles on CBS's "Platinum" and ESPN's "Playmakers." Bent also appeared in Robert Townsend's multi-award winning TV movie "10,000 Black Men Named George" and the CBC miniseries "Guns," winner of five Geminis, alongside Elisha Cuthbert and Colm Feore.

Bent's success in film has also been burgeoning. His film credits include starring opposite Mark Wahlberg and Andrè 3000 in the John Singleton film "Four Brothers" and with Antonio Banderas and Alfre Woodard in "Take the Lead." Bent also co-starred in the smash horror films "Saw II" and "Saw III" and as a central character in "Saw IV," which opened at #1 in the box office, grossing over $100 million worldwide. He has also appeared in "Honey," alongside Jessica Alba and Mekhi Phifer, and "Crime Spree" with Gerard Depardieu. Furthermore, Bent has starred in director Michael Mabbott's critically acclaimed debut feature film, "The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico," which premiered at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival, winning the award for Best First Canadian Feature Film. Most recently, Bent co-starred in Darren Bousman's "Mother's Day" with Rebecca De Mornay, Shawn Ashmore and Jaime King.

Bent is also as passionate about sports as he is about acting. He is an avid golfer and enjoys playing basketball, baseball, and soccer, and is no stranger to his kitchen.
