Award-Winning Actor; Best Known for "Antwone Fisher," "Rogue" & "Empire"

Derek Luke is an actor, best known for his roles in "Antwone Fisher," and "Empire." Like many actors, Luke initially struggled to break into the acting world.

Luke received rave reviews for his big-screen debut and won an Independent Spirit Award for his performance.

Since then, Luke has gone on to become a versatile actor in roles such as, "Friday Night Lights," "Baggage Claim," "Catch a Fire," "Definitely, Maybe" and "Notorious." Luke later went on to appear in paramedic Cameron Boone in the NBC drama series "Trauma" and Gabe Jones in "Captain America" before holding recurring roles in "Empire," "13 Reasons Why" and "The Purge."
