Malik Yoba stars in "Alphas" on Syfy as Bill Harken, a former FBI agent who strictly adheres to procedure and protocol. He is also an Alpha—an everyday person with a very special mental ability known as an "Alpha Skill"—the ability to summon amazing strength by consciously activating the "fight-or-flight" response. With a flood of adrenaline, pain receptors are subdued and for a short bursts of time, Harken experiences super-human strength and a resistance to harm that borders on invulnerability.

Malik Yoba is a three-time NAACP Image Award winner and the creator, writer, director, and producer of BET.com's "ShopTalk: What's on the Hearts of Men." Yoba is a well-respected actor who is perhaps best known though for his role in the hit movie "Cool Runnings" and on the popular FOX series "New York Undercover." He also recently starred in ABC's "Defying Gravity." Through his work in a variety of mediums, Yoba has proven himself to be an artist dedicated to raising consciousness, whether he is working as an actor, musician, inspirational speaker, playwright, or author.

Yoba has appeared in more than 20 films including Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too?" and "Why Did I Get Married?"; "Copland"; "Smoke"; "Blue in the Face"; "Hooked Up Harlem Aria"; "Vote for Me"; "Ride"; "Dreaming in Black and White," winner of Best Film at the 2003 Phoenix Film Festival; the comedy "Kids in America," also starring George Wendt, Rosanna Arquette and Nicole Richie; "Criminal," starring John C. Reilly and Diego Luna; and the independent feature "They're Just My Friends."

Yoba's television credits include a recurring role as "Ice" on the Emmy Award winning FOX comedy series "Arrested Development." He also starred on the TNT series "Bull" and NBC's "Kingpin." Yoba also had a recurring role on "Girlfriends" and the FX Network series "Thief" starring Andre Braugher and Linda Hamilton.

Yoba's popular book "Please Return My Phone Call! Preventing the Demise of Personal and Professional Relationships" is a handbook for business and interpersonal relationships, which offers insight into improving interpersonal communication, integrity, accountability and leadership. In 2009 he joined forces with Chris "Kazi" Rolle in the "Together Apart Live Convo" relationship seminars.

Yoba's solo show, "Harlem to Hollywood," had its New York premiere at the New York Hip Hop Theatre Festival in October 2010.

Born and raised in New York City, Yoba likes to say he's not a product of his urban upbringing, but a progression. Prior to his career in entertainment, Yoba was a full-time educator working with the non-profit youth empowerment organization, City Kids Foundation, in both New York and later Los Angeles where he founded a chapter. He has also worked internationally with young people from Johannesburg Secondary School in South Africa, and the youth leadership conference in Belize and Central America and has been recognized by or worked with President Bill Clinton, UNICEF, The Congressional Black Caucus and The Ethiopian Children's Fund.
