IronE Singleton        

Best known as Theodore "T-Dog" Douglas on AMC's "The Walking Dead"

IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy Oscar Award-nominated film The Blind Side; the biggest box office grossing sports movie of all time. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI and WGA Award-winning, Golden Globe nominated TV show The Walking Dead; one of basic cable's highest rated shows for viewership. Singleton's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters, and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television.

Singleton appears on the big screen alongside Bow Wow and Ice Cube in Lottery Ticket. He stars alongside Nicolas Cage, Guy Pearce and January Jones in the feature film Seeking Justice and captivates the Lifetime audience in his leading role as "Glock" Nichols with Neve Campbell in Sworn To Silence. Singleton's talent is on display in several television pilots, including ABC's Detroit 1-8-7, VH1's Single Ladies, and TNT's Franklin & Bash. Among his other television credits are CW's One Tree Hill and BET's Somebodies.

Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Singleton's story embodies everything we have come to understand about the lives of many inner city youth growing up in low-income housing projects. Fatherless, having lost his mother to HIV/AIDS when he was a senior in high school, and watching his brother spend most of his life in Georgia's prison system, Singleton fought to have a life far different from the one he knew growing up. The irony of his story is that, while all the odds were stacked against him, Singleton still overcame his troubled childhood to attend the University of Georgia on academic and football scholarships where he completed a double major in Theater and Speech Communications.

Prior to breaking into film and television, Singleton put on a one man theater show entitled IronE . . . The Resurrected which garnered rave reviews. He is now in the process of transcribing the production into a semi-autobiography book manuscript which chronicles his life from poverty to fame; available spring 2013. His ambition is to have it produced as a movie along with his current screenplay Volleyball Vixens.

Singleton is also overly enthusiastic about incorporating his non-profit performing arts school, IronE School of The Arts (ISA). The school will provide youth with a performing arts program that is intellectually stimulating, emotionally compelling, aesthetically enriching, and personally relevant with a strong emphasis on truth, purpose, respect for self and others and love for all of humanity.

In his spare time, Singleton is a motivational speaker and lyricist. Samples of his music, including titles such as "We Are The Walking Dead" and "The Blind Side" are available at Singleton divides his time between Atlanta and Los Angeles with his wife and children.
