Biography
Character actor Willis Burks II branched out into film roles in his early sixties, initially with guest appearances on such series programs as NYPD Blue and Law & Order that often cast him as a heavy or a down-and-outer. Burks transitioned to film roles with a neat comic turn as an ex-jazz musician-turned break-in accomplice in Mike Cahill's well-received comedy drama The King of California (2007). Burks' resumé also sports stage work, such as a key contribution to the spring 2000 Broadway run of August Wilson's Jitney.
