Moe McRae stars in "Murder in the First" on TNT as Malcolm "Sugar" Monroe.

From a complex Black Panther leader opposite David Oyelowo, to a big contract professional ball player opposite Liev Schreiber, actor Mo McRae has been booking roles in some of hottest projects in film and television.

On the big screen, McRae was recently seen as Jimmy Carter in "Wild," starring Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, and as Eldridge Huggins in the highly acclaimed "Lee Daniels' The Butler," starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Melissa Leo, Alex Pettyfer and Robin Williams. On television, McRae recently had recurring roles on the hit FX series "Sons of Anarchy," as Tyler, and Showtime's "Ray Donovan" as Deonte Frasier. In 2012, he also appeared in the pilot "Prodigy Bully."

Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, McRae is the oldest of three children. He developed an affinity for the performing arts while attending Washington Preparatory High School, where a drama teacher encouraged him to pursue acting.

Immediately after graduating high school, where he made the decision to become a full-time actor, McRae took a job as a bagger at Ralph's grocery store on Third and LaBrea in Los Angeles. While working his day job, McRae dedicated his spare time to a program called Assemblies in Motion, using poetry and music to help educate and empower the underserved community. While at an event for Assemblies in Motion, he was approached by an agent who offered to work with him. McRae signed with him a week later and immediately started booking jobs.

Within weeks, he had landed six national commercials and quickly booked his first feature film, the critically acclaimed, Oscar nominated "Thirteen" for Fox Searchlight Pictures. He went on to appear in Sony Pictures Entertainment's "Gridiron Gang" and the indie film "Everyday Black Man."

McRae has also made his mark on the television front, appearing on television series such as "NYPD Blue," "Boston Public," "Becker," "The District," "The Shield," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "ER," "Cold Case," "Southland," "Detroit 1-8-7," "The Defenders," "CSI: NY" and "Battle Creek."

When not working, McRae loves to spend time with his daughter, ride motorcycles, watch movies and exercise to keep in shape. He is also an active supporter of the charity Kids in the Spotlight.
