Profile Bio Text
Veteran TV actor Dondré T. Whitfield has been called up to the majors during his summer hiatus, taking a swing at the baseball film, Mr 3000 (2004), starring Bernie Mac and Angela Bassett. A former semi-pro baseball player, Dondré portrays one of Mac`s teammates in the movie. Dondré wasted no time in preparing for his role. Less than 48 hours after closing his deal with Disney, Dondré knocked two in the stands at Dodger Stadium, while taking batting practice with the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. Once in production, Dondré continued to show his love for the game, requesting his character wear uniform #1 -- in honor of his all-time favorite shortstop, Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith. Dondré also paid homage to another shortstop sensation -- Yankee Derek Jeter - by shagging one of his signature baseball gloves to use during filming.
A three-time Emmy nominee, Dondré is also among the country`s hottest celebrity couples. He and his wife, Salli Richardson Whitfield have been named one of Ebony magazine`s "10 Hottest Couples", in a cover story that also declared their recent nuptials among the "Top Weddings of the Year". Dondré`s recent credits include the NBC comedies, "Hidden Hills" (2002) and "Inside Schwartz" (2001). His first professional acting job was on "The Cosby Show" (1984), the most-watched sitcom in television history. Dondré`s prime-time résumé also includes a multi-episode arc on the hit series, "Girlfriends" (2000)_. Dondré also starred in "Secret Agent Man" (2000), a retro spy series produced by Barry Sonnenfeld and Barry Josephson. Dondré saved the world from alien attack in the made-for-television sci-fi thriller, Alien Fury: Countdown to Invasion (2000) (TV). He also starred in the popular comedy, "Between Brothers" (1997), which aired on both Fox and UPN. In addition to his series regular role on the Fox sitcoms, "Living in Captivity" (1998) and "The Crew" (1995), Dondré has also guest-starred on "NYPD Blue" (1993), "The X Files" (1993), "Nash Bridges" (1996), "Martin" (1992) and "The Jamie Foxx Show" (1996). On the feature front, Dondré gave a scene-stealing performance in Two Can Play That Game (2001), starring Vivica A. Fox and also appeared in Happy Birthday (2001/I), directed by Oscar-nominated actress Helen Mirren. Dondré`s daytime credits include "All My Children" (1970), where he was a three-time Emmy nominee and earned two nominations for the NAACP Image Award. On stage, Dondré has appeared at the prestigious Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut, in "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men". A Brooklyn, New York, native, Dondré received formal training at Performing Arts High in New York City. An avid golfer and motorcyclist, Dondré and his wife live in Los Angeles.
