Laurence Fishburne Biography

Born in Augusta, Georgia on July 30, 1961, Laurence Fishburne has established himself as one of the premiere African-American actors working today. Following his parents' divorce, Fishburne's math teacher mother transplanted the family to Brooklyn, where at the age of 10 he appeared in his first play ("In My Many Names and Days"). By age 12, Fishburne won a recurring role on the daytime soap "One Life to Live" (1968), and subsequently made his film debut in Cornbread, Earl and Me (1975). At 14, Francis Ford Coppola cast Fishburne in Apocalypse Now (1979). After that lengthy shoot (nearly two years in the Philippines), Fishburne took a bit of a break from acting, though Coppola got him back in the game with featured roles in Rumble Fish (1983), The Cotton Club (1984), and Gardens of Stone (1987). Fishburne truly broke out as a star in the early 1990s thanks to a lead role in John Singleton's Boyz n the Hood (1991). He received further acclaim for a powerful performance as an ex-con in play "Two Trains Running," which won him a Tony Award in 1992. A year later, Fishburne won an Emmy for the pilot episode of the series "Tribeca" (1993), and on the big screen Fishburne received an Oscar nomination for his role as Ike Turner in What's Love Got to Do with It (1993). It was during this general time of his career that he began billing himself as "Laurence" instead of "Larry."Fishburne's most-popular role to date is Morpheus in sci-fi classic The Matrix (1999) and its sequels The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003). He has also had noteworthy roles in movies like Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993), Bad Company (1995), Othello (1995), Event Horizon (1997), Hoodlum (1997), Mystic River (2003), Akeelah and the Bee (2006), Mission: Impossible III (2006), Bobby (2006), 21 (2008), Predators (2010) and Contagion (2011). Fishburne also tried his hand at writing and directing with Once in the Life (2000), which was based on his critically-acclaimed play "Riff Raff" from five years earlier.In 2008, Fishburne replaced William Peterson as the male lead on popular CBS drama "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000), though he left the show in 2011.Fishburne has two children, Langston and Montana, from his first marriage to actress Hajna O. Moss. In September, 2002 Fishburne married Cuban-American actress Gina Torres.
