Tony Todd stars in "Final Destination 5," opposite Nicholas D'Agosto and Emma Bell, as Bludworth.

Tony Todd is perhaps best known for his chilling portrayal in the title role of "Candyman." Since his film debut in the motion picture "Sleepwalk" in 1986, followed by a starring role in Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning film "Platoon," this charismatic, six-foot-five-inch actor has consistently turned in compelling and singular performances.

Todd's other film credits include "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "The Rock," "The Crow," "Lean on Me," "Bird," "Night of the Living Dead," "Final Destination," "Final Destination 2," "Final Destination 3," and "Le Secret," from the award-winning team of Erick Zonca and Virginie Wagon. Todd has also starred in such films as "The Mansfield 12," "Shadow Puppets," "The Man From Earth" and "Changing The Game" and, more recently, "Dream in American," "Cut" and "Hatchet II."

On the small screen, Todd starred in the NBC pilot "The Event" and had recurring roles on two television series, "Chuck" and "24." Past guest-starring TV appearances include "Masters Of Horror," "Criminal Minds," "Without a Trace," "Boston Legal," "NYPD Blue," "Boston Public," "Smallville," "Law & Order," "Crossing Jordan," "Homicide: Life on the Street," "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Hercules," "The X-Files" and "Andromeda." He had recurring roles on all three incarnations of the "Star Trek" series, and his television movies include "True Women," "The Black Fox," "Butter," "The Last Elephant," "Babylon 5: A Call to Arms" and "Control Factor." He has also lent his voice to several animated series, and will soon be heard on "Transformers Prime" and "Ultimate Spider-Man."

Todd's passion for acting began in theater, first at the University of Connecticut and then at the renowned Eugene O'Neill National Theatre Institute. He originated the title role of award-winning playwright August Wilson's "King Hedley II," and also received a Helen Hayes Award nomination for his performance in Athol Fugard's "The Captain's Tiger." His other theater credits include "Les Blancs," "Playboy of the West Indies," "Othello," "Zooman and The Sign," "Dark Paradise," Broadway's production of "Aida," "Levee James" for the prestigious Eugene O'Neill Playwrights Conference and, most recently, a starring role in Athol Fugard's "The Island," and the role of Troy Maxon in August Wilson's "Fences," for the Geva Theatre Center.
