James Richard Black (born April 3, 1962 in Lima, Ohio) is an American film and television actor, and former professional football player.


After receiving a music degree from the University of Akron (where he also played football), Black joined the NFL's Cleveland Browns as a running back. However, his NFL career was short-lived, and eventually pursued a career as an actor.

Black is perhaps best known for his leading role as Agent Michael Hailey on the UPN science fiction drama The Burning Zone. He has also had roles in numerous other television series and films. His television appearances include V.I.P., Fashion House, All of Us, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Strong Medicine, and Six Feet Under.

In motion pictures, he had the leading role of Victor Erickson in the 1998 direct-to-video film Cappuccino, the screenplay of which was based upon a story by popular African American author Eric Jerome Dickey. Also, he appeared in The Replacements, Out of Sight, Love and a Bullet, and Universal Soldier: The Return. Additionally, he portrayed boxer Ernie Shavers in the HBO TV movie Don King: Only in America.
