Hakeem Kae-Kazim


Date Of Birth

October 1, 1962


Actor Hakeem Kae-Kazim first gained prominence as a stage actor in the United Kingdom, appearing in several productions staged at London’s Royal National Theatre. From there, he made the transition to television, becoming a staple of British dramas in the late ‘80s and throughout the ‘90s. Notable among these roles include a two-episode run on the drama Ellington, and a recurring stint in the children’s series Grange Hill.

Kae-Kazim began appearing in films in 1999, but only gained prominence in 2004 for his role in the critically-acclaimed Hotel Rwanda. The film, a retelling of the efforts of a hotelier (Don Cheadle) in saving refugees during the Rwandan genocide, earned him attention, as it reaped rave reviews and award nominations despite a limited run. However, his only award nomination came in 2004, through a role in the Canadian television miniseres Human Cargo; he took a Gemini nomination in that year.

Nevertheless, Kae-Kazim became more prominent and began appearing in some more mainstream projects. He recently starred in Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End, provided his voice to an episode of the animated series Ben 10: Alien Force, and appeared in the television special 24: Redemption, as well as in the follow-up seventh season of 24. He later landed roles in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Fourth Kind, Faith and Dreams, Black Gold, Inside Story, Black November, Half of a Yellow Sun, and Gotham. At present, he plays Mr. Scott on the TV series Black Sails.
