Marcus T. Thomas
Marcus is a quick-witted, educated, conscientious, empathetic lover of people and the world around him who has the uncanny ability of assimilating into just about any crowd. If you don't find him uplifting someone's day with comedic repartee, you may catch him challenging an opponent on the mat or burning up a dance floor; the life of any party. But watch out, he may go to great lengths to protect the things he loves.
From the central valley of California, Marcus came to Los Angeles to do what he’s always loved to do-- to entertain and move people through art. The son of an Air Force master sergeant and a top-level administrative assistant, he was a first generation college graduate (cum laude). In undergrad, Marcus fell more in love with performing while dancing on U.C. Riverside’s grand proscenium stage- a talent that got him noticed by agencies like Bloc and Bobby Ball.
It was not long after his move to L.A. that he began sharing the spotlight in productions like West Side Story, Cabaret, and The Wild Party. Marcus was beginning to stand out from the pack not only for his movement, but also his acting and stage presence. This translated into landing theatrical reps that saw him book several national commercials with major airplay, including the super bowl, NBA playoffs and the Oscars (BMW, Buick, Dodge, Verizon, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, etc.).
If you think Marcus has still somehow managed to evade your purview, perhaps he has appeared in one of your favorite shows. On NBC’s THIS IS US, he was William’s Father. He was Criminal Minds’ riveting prison unsub, Devon White, Dre’s ghosted office co-worker, Terrence, on Black-ish, and the comically formidable Yale postgraduate waiter on MOM.
There is far more ahead for this innovative actor. Why not come along for the journey?
