Kent FaulconKent Faulcon, an actor/writer/director who appears regularly in leading and supporting television and film roles, enjoys a career that provides him with the best of all worlds: the opportunity to work with the most recognized actors and directors in the biggest films in the business and the freedom to work on smaller projects he cares about.

Faulcon has always found writing and directing to be complementary to his work as an actor. His latest project, Sister’s Keeper (with Eric Roberts and Denise Boutté), is a crowd-pleasing action-drama he wrote and directed and in which he starred. The story of a hardened assassin assigned to kill a beautiful small-town teacher was recently released nationally and internationally on DVD.
Faulcon has produced, directed, and sometimes starred in several short film projects, including Whiteline, Love on Ave. A and Karma. His one-act play Eleventh Hour of the Dinosaur was featured as a staged reading at Playwrights’ Horizons in New York City, where Faulcon was a member of the theater’s African-American Writers Unit. His screenplay Reel Men, about the life of film great Oscar Micheaux, received thunderous praise at its staged reading (performed by Delroy Lindo and Lisa Gay Hamilton) at The Nuyorican Poets Café in New York. The script was later optioned by a major studio.
