Mekhi Phifer is set to guest-star on LIE TO ME in a two-episode arc starting Wednesday, May 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Phifer, who begins production today, will play Ben Reynolds, an FBI agent who partners with Lightman to track down a serial rapist terrorizing the Washington, DC area. In the season’s second to last episode, Reynolds, having spent the last six months pursuing the elusive criminal, assists The Lightman Group in solving their toughest case yet.
Perhaps best known for his starring role on “ER,” which garned him two NAACP Image Award nominations, Phifer is also known for his many successful feature films. He began his acting career in Spike Lee’s “Clockers” and then went on to star in such films as “8 Mile” opposite Eminem, “O” opposite Josh Hartnett and Julia Stiles as well as “Soul Food” with Vanessa Williams. Phifer’s other television credits include “The Tuskegee Airmen,” “Subway Stories: Tales from the Underground,” “Brian’s Song” and “Carmen: A Hip Hopera.” Phifer earned an additional NAACP Image Award nomination for the cable film “A Lesson Before Dying.”
