An award-winning actor, film producer, philanthropist, inner-city youth mentor, advocate, and arts instructor. The Queens, New York native, who Indiewire hails as a “transformative actor,” is known for a bevy of captivating TV, film, theatrical roles, including ‘Flesh and Bone,’ ‘White Collar,’ ‘Brooklyn’s Finest,’ ‘One Life to Live,’ ‘Hitch,’ ‘Blue Bloods,’ ‘Black Angels Over Tuskegee,’ ‘Person of Interest,’ and many others acclaimed productions. Consistently pushing artistic boundaries, with latest recurring role as music producer Derek Major (“D-Major”) on Season 2 of the Fox breakout hit musical drama TV series, ‘Empire,’ is indicative of Tobias’s ongoing diversity and evolution. Currently, you can catch Tobias on the new hit series “In Contempt” as Bennet Thompson, the former law professor and love interest of the main character.
