Mykelti Williamson

Mykelti Williamson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 4, 1960. His name is pronounced 'Michael Tee' and is Native American (Blackfeet), meaning 'Spirit' or 'Silent Friend'. As a child in Memphis, Tennessee, he began acting in church theatre. After moving to Los Angeles at the age of 15, he studied acting in high school and became a semi-regular on the TV series, "Hill Street Blues", in 1983. His many film credits include "Streets of Fire", "Wildcats", "Free Willy", "Heat", "Con Air", "Primary Colors", "Three Kings" and "Ali". He is probably best known for his portrayal of 'Bubba' in "Forrest Gump". Mykelti is married and has three daughters - Phoenix, Nicole Skye and Maya River.

Mykelti received an NAACP Image Award nomination in the Best Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as Detective Bobby 'Fearless' Smith.

Police Detective Bobby 'Fearless' Smith is a dedicated, well-respected police officer. But, beneath his easy-going demeanor he hides a traumatic childhood event, which he only recently came to terms with. A veteran of the Gulf War, he returned home with a fatalist attitude and a list of 100 things he wants to do before he dies, because at the end of his life he doesn't want any regrets. He lives alone in a motel but has developed a relationship with Katrina, a Russian emigree with a young daughter.


Mykelti describes Fearless:

"They call him 'Fearless'... Deep down inside, he lives with this haunting fear of 'Run as fast as you can to get it all in before it's over.'"

"The beauty of the character is that the man knows life is fragile."
