Mos Def actually started his acting career at the age of 14, before breaking through as a star of the underground rap scene in the late 1990s. However, his roles in TV movies and short-lived shows such as "You Take the Kids" and "The Cosby Mysteries" failed to garner much attention. After small roles in the movies "Bamboozled" and "Monster's Ball," he re-invigorated his acting career with a role in the 2002 movie "Brown Sugar." Soon came bigger roles in movies such as "The Italian Job" (pictured, second from right), "The Woodsman," "16 Blocks" and "Be Kind Rewind," and a recurring role in the Showtime series "Dexter."
