John Beasley Worked In Many Movies!
Beasley was born on June 26, 1943. He didn't start playing until he was older. Before he started acting, he worked as a train worker for the Union Pacific train. His first role was as a bad guy in the 1989 movie Rapid Fire.
From there, he played Mr. Willie in four episodes of Brewster Place, which starred Oprah Winfrey, on ABC in 1990. Then came the TV movie Lucky Day. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Beasley had steady work in both movies and TV shows.
Even though he was in shows like CSI, Judging Amy, Boston Legal, and Treme, his most famous parts may have been on The WB's drama Everwood and TV Land's comedy The Soul Man. On the first, Beasley played the bus driver, Irv Harper. In the second, he played the father of Cedric the Entertainer's character, Barton Ballentine.
The Apostle, V.I. Warshawski, The Mighty Ducks, Rudy, Untamed Heart, Losing Isaiah, Little Big League, Crazy in Alabama, The General's Daughter, The Sum of All Fears, Walking Tall, and Firestarter were all movies in which he played a major part.
Beasley played a part on the Fox drama Shots Fired, worked as a bartender on The Mandalorian, and was a key character in the Facebook Watch action series Limetown as Warren Chambers.
Beasley was set to make his Broadway bow later this year in the musical The Notebook, which is based on the 2004 movie of the same name. Last fall, he played Duke in a run of the musical in Chicago. In an interview with American Theatre at the time, he said that the chance was proof that his long career had been worth it.
