Grantham Coleman BIO

Grantham Coleman mostly recently appeared as Macduff in Macbeth on Broadway, as well as Martin Luther King Jr. in The Great Society and The Public Theater’s Much Ado About Nothing, which Kenny Leon directed for Shakespeare in the Park. He most recently performed in the Los Angeles Disney Hall production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest alongside the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra immediately following a hugely successful run of Center Theatre Group’s production of the Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Sweat. Previously, Grantham shot the role of famed Black Panther, Bobby Seale, in Benedict Andrew’s upcoming film Against All Enemies in which he stars opposite Kirsten Stewart, Anthony Mackie, and Zazie Beatz. He received amazing reviews as Shakespeare’s Danish prince in the Old Globe’s production of Hamlet. Several other notable appearances include the Bad Robot-produced Hulu mini-series 11/22/63 alongside James Franco, which is based on Stephen King’s novel and Buzzer at The Public Theatre in New York City. Grantham received outstanding praise for his role of Tarell in Alvin McCraney’s play Choir Boy at the Geffen, just as he did in the original version at The Manhattan Theatre Club in New York. Grantham’s other credits include performing the lead role in Charles Fuller’s production of One Night at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and in the SoHo Rep Theatre’s We Are Proud To Present… His television credits include a guest starring roles in the NBC critically acclaimed comedy “The Carmichael Show,” the CBS series “NCIS,” “Doubt,” the NBC series “The Night Shift,” in addition to his work opposite Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys in the hit FX television show “The Americans.”
