Three-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, actor and producer Rick Fox has appeared in a number of film and television projects, sharing the screen with actors ranging from Whoopi Goldberg to Henry Winkler to Angela Bassett and Shia LeBeouf. Fox's acting debut came in 1994 in William Friedkin's "Blue Chips." Similar roles followed in 1996's "Eddie" and 1998's critically acclaimed "He Got Game" (directed by Spike Lee) before Fox's breakout role on the hit HBO series "Oz." Since then, Rick has appeared in more than a dozen network shows, including "Ugly Betty," "One Tree Hill," "The Game" and "Dirt." In addition, Fox has appeared in numerous films, including "Resurrection," "Holes," "Mini's First Time" and Tyler Perry's "Meet The Browns." While Fox continues to strengthen his craft, he's just as busy behind the camera, developing his own film and television projects for his production company, 1744 Entertainment. As a star basketball athlete, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was coached by the legendary Dean Smith. Fox began his pro basketball career when he was drafted into the NBA by the Boston Celtics as a first round pick. He went on to be the captain of both the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, where he was coached by 11-time champion Phil Jackson. Fox is a father of two and currently resides in Los Angeles.
