Omar Epps is an accomplished young actor, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He's starred in many films, notably Love and Basketball, The Wood, and Juice. Omar has played a tough character in film and television, but he's no slouch off camera either. Born Omar Hashim Epps in Brooklyn, New York, on May 16, 1973, Epps was raised by his mother, an elementary school principal. He attended both the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the New York High School for the Performing Arts. His performances were consistently solid. In John Singleton's film Higher Learning (1995), Omar Epps earned particular acclaim for his portrayal of a young man attending college on an athletic scholarship. Around this same time, Epps also excelled in a brief recurring role as an emotionally stressed intern on E.R.; he would later identify that role as the one that made it possible for audiences to finally put a name to his face.
