He then relocated to Los Angeles for the show "China Beach" where he created the character Sam Beckett. Ensuing television roles included "Muscle," "The Jackie Thomas Show," "Living Single" and "Spin City." Boatman has appeared in several movies for television and films including "Peacemaker," "The Glass Shield," Sidney Lumet's "Running on Empty," and the independent film, "Unbecoming Age."
