Darius McCrary was known for his many talents on Family Matters, especially his singing, so it was no surprise that the California actor was cast as the lead role in the 2000 made-for-TV movie, Something to Sing About. Showing off his vocal range to its full extent, McCrary gave hope to many his with melodic gospel sounds as he acted alongside former Sister, Sister star, Tamera Mowry-Housley. The following year, the boy America knew as Eddie hit big screen with a star-studded cast including LL Cool J, Jada Pinkett Smith, Vivica A. Fox, Loretta Devine, Whoopi Goldberg, Toni Braxton and a handful of others in Kingdom Come (2001).
Like Kellie Shangyne Williams, Darius also made several appearances on UPN (now the CW) as his Family Matter days. In 2003 he guest starred on Girlfriends as Toniâ€™s brother Antione. Three years later, he made a few cameos on Eve as Jamal. Since 2006, the 36-year-old Renaissance man has appeared in four studio films (Transformers, 2007; Next Day Air, 2009; Steppinâ€™: The Movie, 2009; and Saw VI, 2009); picked up a role next to former co-star Bryton James (Richeie) on The Young & The Restless; and taken on more than five TV and second-tier films. In all, McCrary has been nominated for a Young Artist Award five times in his career, and continues to excel on the Hollywood front.
