Charles Dutton booking
Labeled an incorrigible youth in his native city of Baltimore, Charles S. Dutton dropped out of school at age twelve and led a life that sent him to reform school and, eventually, to prison. Actor and director, Dutton’s life story is both sobering and inspirational.
While incarcerated, he accidentally picked up a book of plays and discovered the theater. Upon his release, he started a new life, earning a bachelor’s degree and a scholarship to Yale’s School of Drama. Since then, Dutton’s career has spanned the Broadway stage, television and film with performances that have captured him Tony, Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. He has starred in numerous films including Rudy, Cookie’s Fortune, Cry the Beloved Country, Get on the Bus, Q & A, Crocodile Dundee II, Nick of Time and A Time to Kill.
Dutton is probably best known as the star and executive producer of the FOX-TV comedy-drama series, ROC. The series received high praise from critics and viewers alike for its positive portrayal of a black working class family. In 1997, he made his directorial debut in First Time Felon for HBO, garnering some of the network’s highest ratings. In 2000 he directed all six episodes of the HBO original miniseries, The Corner. The Corner swept the 2000 Emmy Awards in every category for which it was nominated, including Dutton’s win as Best Director. He directed his first feature film, Against the Ropes, starring Meg Ryan, which was released February 2004.
Dutton also starred in Showtime’s Blind Faith, TNT’s Deadlocked and the HBO movie For Love of Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story in which he played jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie. Most recently, he starred in the Showtime original film, 10,000 Black Men Named George. He also serves as an inspiring role model, having implemented the “Safe Schools, Successful Students” program in Baltimore.
Dutton has delivered several keynote addresses at major universities and was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Human Letters from Towson State University. Whether he is discussing his views on the values of education and self-determination, racism in Hollywood, the drug “war” in America, minimum sentencing or his first-hand knowledge of the power to change one’s life, few speakers can match Dutton’s overwhelming presence, intensity and ability to inspire audiences.
