Delroy George Lindo (born November 18, 1952) is an English actor and theatre director. Lindo has been nominated for the Tony and Screen Actors Guild awards and has won a Satellite Award. He is perhaps best known for his roles in a trio of Spike Lee films, especially as West Indian Archie in Lee's Malcolm X (1992) and Woody Carmichael in Crooklyn (1994), Catlett in Get Shorty, Arthur Rose in The Cider House Rules, and Detective Castlebeck in Gone in 60 Seconds (2000). Lindo starred as Alderman Ronin Gibbons in the TV series The Chicago Code (2011), and as Winter on the series Believe, which premiered in 2014.

Biography

Né de parents jamaïquains, Delroy Lindo grandit en Grande-Bretagne, avant de s'installer à Toronto, puis un peu plus tard aux États-Unis. Il y suit des études théâtrales à l'American Conservatory Theater de San Francisco. Après quelques apparitions dans des séries et des téléfilms au début des années 80, mais aussi au cinéma où il obtient un petit rôle dans la comédie Find The Lady (1976) et More American Graffiti, il disparaît des plateaux pour retrouver la scène pendant près de dix ans, notamment à Broadway.

En 1992, il signe un retour marquant devant la caméra de Spike Lee dans Malcolm X où il joue Archie, une interprétation qui lui vaut de nombreuses récompenses. Il retrouve le cinéaste militant à trois occasion : en 1994 dans Crooklyn et en 1995 dans Clockers. Lindo fait partie, l'année suivante, du trio de choc de Get Shorty aux côtés de Gene Hackman et Danny DeVito que dirige Barry Sonnenfeld. Deux années de suite, il tourne avec Keanu Reeves en 1996 et 1997 dans Feeling Minnesota et L'Associé du diable. Son physique, massif (il mesure 1,93 m) y fait merveille, ainsi que son autorité naturelle. Un charisme qui le pousse aussi vers des rôles virils, tels celui du général Wheeler dans Le Dernier château, où il donne la réplique à Robert Redford et James Gandolfini.

Delroy Lindo affronte par deux fois la star des films d'action Jet Li dans Roméo doit mourir en 2000 et dans The One (2001) de James Wong. Cette même année, il retrouve le tiercé gagnant de Get Shorty dans Braquages sous la direction de David Mamet. Après avoir passé des aventures mouvementées au Sahara en compagnie de Matthew McConaughey, il est sollicité par Tony Scott pour tourner Domino (2005), qui retrace le parcours de Domino Harvey, fille de l'acteur Laurence Harvey, qui passa du métier de mannequin à celui de chasseuse de primes. En 2009, délaissant provisoirement le registre des films survitaminés, il prête pour la première fois sa voix à un film d'animation : Là-haut, des studios Pixar.

Geologist Dr. Josh Keyes (Aaron Eckhart) and scientists Serge Leveque (Tchéky Karyo) and Conrad Zimsky (Stanley Tucci) become aware of an instability of Earth's magnetic field after a series of incidents across the globe. They determine that the Earth's molten core, which generates this field, has stopped rotating, and within a year the field will collapse exposing the planet's surface directly to devastating solar radiation. Backed by the U.S. Government, Keyes, Leveque, and Zimsky create a plan to bore down to the core and set off several nuclear explosions to restart the rotation. They gain help of rogue scientist Ed "Braz" Brazzelton (Delroy Lindo) who has devised a vessel made of "Unobtainium" that can withstand the heat and pressure within the Earth's crust and convert it to energy, as well as a laser-driven boring system that will allow them to quickly pass through the crust. Construction starts immediately on the Virgil, a multi-compartment vessel to be helmed by Space Shuttle pilots Commander Robert Iverson (Bruce Greenwood) and Major Rebecca "Beck" Childs (Hilary Swank) who will join Keyes and the others. To prevent a worldwide panic, Keyes enlists computer hacker Theodore Donald "Rat" Finch (DJ Qualls) to scour the Internet and eliminate all traces of the pending disaster or their plan.
