Luke Cage

Mike Colter is the new face of both Netflix and Marvel, starring as Luke Cage in three out of their five partnered series (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and The Defenders). Mike made his Marvel universe debut as Luke Cage in “Jessica Jones” — the second of four dramas picked up straight to series by Netflix — before being spun off to headline “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” which premiered on September 30th. Nominated for a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series, “Marvel’s Luke Cage” follows the character’s backstory as a man wrongfully imprisoned who undergoes a secret experiment that leaves him with bulletproof skin and super strength. Once freed, Cage attempts to lead a normal life, before his past lures him into the spotlight as a hero for hire and a defender of the people. Set in modern day Harlem, “Marvel’s Luke Cage” is being called the ‘Most Important Show of 2016’ given the social and political relevance of Luke Cage as a bulletproof black superhero. Marvel and Netflix have partnered to adapt four of the publisher’s properties — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist — into four hourlong, 13-episode series, culminating in a crossover miniseries event titled “The Defenders,” which will bring the “street level” characters together. In addition to his role as Luke Cage, Mike will star alongside Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall in the Universal Picture film GIRL TRIP set for release July 21, 2017. Mike will play Regina Hall’s unfaithful and fame hungry husband Stewart Pierce, in the film that centers on four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Prior to this, Mike is perhaps best known for his role as drug lord Lemond Bishop on six seasons of “The Good Wife.” He also had a character arc in the EMMY and Golden Globe Nominated mini-series "American Horror Story: Coven;" where he played an executive of a powerful company and head witch hunter alongside Jessica Lange and Angela Basset. Mike is also known for his recurring role on "The Following" alongside Kevin Bacon and his series regular turn in the short lived "Ringer" with Sarah Michelle Gellar. On the stage, Mike starred in Adam Bock's play "Drunken City” that had a world premiered at the Playwrights Horizon. He has also received exceptional reviews for his turn as CJ Memphis, a guitar-playing blues singer in the 2005 revival of the Pulitzer Prize winning "A Soldier's Play;" the original stage adaptation of Mike’s career inspiration A Soldier’s Story. The play was a big off-Broadway success and really brought Mike’s acting career full circle.
