Andre Royo stars in "Red Tails," opposite Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., as Antwan "Coffee" Coleman. Royo says, "Coffee is like MacGyver — he can make it happen with a rubber band, comic book, chewing tobacco. He was destined to be a pilot, but when they told him he couldn't do it, he fell back and said, 'If I can't fly, I'm going to fix the planes.' He's a little envious when he sees the pilots go up and it makes him a little bit of a grouch, because he wishes he was up there flying."

Andre Royo has that rare ability to give the characters he plays depth and emotion without overshadowing his cast mates. As evidence, see Royo's amazing turn as Bubbles on HBO's critically acclaimed drama "The Wire," Henry Arliss Higgins on FOX's "Fringe" and Stephen Canfield in "Heroes."

Royo has also appeared on a diverse range of shows, including "How to Make it in America," "Memphis Beat," "The Whole Truth," "Party Down," "CSI: Miami," "Numb3rs" and "Criminal Minds."

The first time Royo appeared on the big screen was in John Singleton's "Shaft." He's also appeared in an eclectic array of independent features such as "Hellbenders," "The Collection," "G" and "Super."

Beyond acting, Royo is executive producing the independent feature film "Would You Rather."
