Since starring as Ellis Carver, the unethical, skull cracking Baltimore city police detective in HBO’s ground breaking procedural drama The Wire, Seth Gilliam has encountered a bit of type casting. This studly dude went on to play a detective in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and a U.S. Marshal in Did You Hear About the Morgans?(2009) with Sarah Jessica Parker. It really is too bad because prior to his five-year stint on The Wire, Seth was landing parts that truly utilized his assets. As corrections officer turned inmate Clayton Hughes in the HBO’s prison drama OZ, Seth’s sensual sculpted ass and fleshy uncut dong are on full view in the third season finale. Seth followed up that arousing display with a flash of his fanny in the 2002 independent drama Personal Velocity: Three Portraits. Fortunately, he was able to bust out of the cop thing to play a member of the medical profession, Dr. Alan Deaton on Teen Wolf from 2011-2017, with a reprise in the follow-up TV movie in 2023. You can also admire his survival skills in one of his most popular roles, playing Gabriel Stokes for 125 episodes of The Walking Dead, from 2014-2022. Between all that, you can catch him as a chaplin in Homeland in 2012, and as a reverend on City on a Hill in 2019. On the big screen, the New York native was Frederic Johnson in Still Alice (2014) with Julianne Moore, and another guy with a badge in Police State(2017) with Sean Young.
