Tony Todd

Born Timothy Henry Todd in Washington, D.C., Mr. Todd started out his career on the stage, after going to college for two years at the University of Connecticut and the Eugene O’Neill National Theatre Institute. Not only an actor, he also taught playwriting to high school students. In 1986, he made his film debut in Sleepwalk, a film that, according to the Internet Movie Database, is about an ancient Chinese manuscript that starts taking over the life of the woman translating it. Also during the 1980s, he played in Platoon as Sgt. Warren, Colors, and Lean on Me, as well as guest spots on Night Court, 21 Jump Street and MacGyver. During the 1990s, Mr. Todd started making his entrance into the horror genre, with films like Voodoo Dawn and Night of the Living Dead in 1990, as well as a guest stint on Star Trek: The Next Generation as Klingon Worf’s brother Kurn. In 1992, he starred in what seems to have been his most famous role, Candyman, which led to two sequels: Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh, and Candyman: Day of the Dead. Following Candyman and Candyman 2, Tony Todd played in two films with the word Master in them… Beastmaster: The Eye of Braxus and Wes Craven’s Wishmaster. In 1999, in addition to Candyman 3, he also provided FMV narration to Sony’s hit video game Legend of Dragoon. The year 2000 saw him making a cameo appearance in Final Destination as William Bludworth, the mortician who seems to know more than he should about Death’s workings, a role that he carried on into Final Destination 2. In Final Destination 3, the Bludworth character doesn’t appear, but you can hear Mr. Todd’s voice at the beginning and end of the film: once, as the voice of the Demon outside the doomed roller coaster, and once as the conductor’s voice on the subway at the end. He also put in guest appearances on Angel, Smallville, Crossing Jordan and Andromeda. In 2003, he both played Caleb Kilgore in Scarecrow Slayer, the second film in the Scarecrow trilogy, but also acted as associate producer. In 2006, he did his voice stint in Final Destination 3, played the duel roles of Jekyll and Hyde in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and played Reverend Zombie in Hatchet, a role he’s rumored to be reprising for Hatchet 2. Recently, he’s played in The Graves and The Thirst: Blood War, as well as having a recurring role on NBC’s spy spoof Chuck as CIA Director Graham.
