Dennis Haysbert was born June 2, 1954 and is an American film and television actor. He is known for portraying Nelson Mandela in Goodbye Bafana, baseball player Pedro Cerrano in the Major League film trilogy, President David Palmer on the American television series 24, and Sergeant Major Jonas Blane in The Unit, as well as his work in commercials for Allstate insurance. He is also known for his authoritative, bass voice.

Haysbert has been acting in film and television since 1979, starting with a guest role in The White Shadow. His television guest starring roles include Lou Grant, Laverne & Shirley, The A-Team, Dallas, Magnum, P.I., Buck Rogers in the 25th Century[4], and Duckman. In 1993 he had a featured role in Return to Lonesome Dove as outlaw Cherokee Jack Jackson. In 1999, Haysbert starred with Eric Close in Now and Again, which was cancelled after its first season.

In 2001, Haysbert became better known when he was cast in 24 playing U.S. Senator David Palmer, who served as America’s first Black President (in the context of the show) during the second and third seasons. He also returned as a guest star in the last six episodes of season 4 and the first episode of season 5. He stated in an interview for the show that the three men he admires most ” Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Colin Powell ” collectively embody his idea of what a President should be. Haysbert believes that his playing of David Palmer on 24 helped Barack Obama ” whom Haysbert supported ” to win the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

Haysbert was the first actor to portray DC Comics character Kilowog, a member of the Green Lantern Corps, in a medium outside of comics. He provided the voice of Kilowog on various episodes of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.

On March 4, 2006, Haysbert guest starred on the Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Natalie Portman as the host of a live action/animated TV Funhouse cartoon called Belated Black History Moment. In his role, Haysbert paid homage to fictional short-lived Saturday morning cartoons featuring black characters, such as “Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Outer Space”.

Haysbert portrayed the lead character Jonas Blane in the CBS action-drama The Unit, which ended after its fourth season on 10th May 2009.

Mr. Haysbert hosted and narrated the Military History Channel presentation of Secrets of Pearl Harbor which documented his scuba dives with a film team on World War II era Japanese and American warships in the Pacific Theater of action.
