Michael Cudlitz (born December 29, 1964) is an American actor, known for portraying John Cooper on the TNT drama series Southland, Sergeant Denver “Bull” Randleman on the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, and Sergeant Abraham Ford on the AMC horror series The Walking Dead.

Early life[edit]

Cudlitz was born on Long Island, New York and grew up in Lakewood Township, New Jersey.[1] He is a 1982 graduate of Lakewood High School. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts, where he graduated in 1990.[2]


While a student at California Institute of the Arts until he landed the role in Band of Brothers, Cudlitz worked in TV and film production in the art department of various shows.[3] Cudlitz was a construction coordinator on Beverly Hills, 90210.[4]

His first acting role was in the 1989 film Crystal Ball, playing Scottie. Other roles were Tony Miller on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Tad Overton on Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, and in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, the second seasons of 24, Lost, FOX series Standoff, and Prison Break. He guest starred on Over There. He played Bob Destepello in the 1997 film Grosse Pointe Blank. He also played a 30-second role as a bartender in the movie Forces of Nature in 1999. His breakout role came in 2001 with his portrayal of Sgt. Denver “Bull” Randleman in the World War II miniseries, Band of Brothers.[5][6]

Cudlitz starred on the critically acclaimed,[7][8] seven-episode NBC drama Southland as patrol officer John Cooper, a 20-year veteran and training officer.[9][10] It was picked up by TNT, who aired the remaining episodes of its first season, bringing it back for a total of five seasons.[11][12] The character struggled with chronic back pain, addiction to pain medication, and ethical issues relating to his partners.[13] Prior to the start of shooting for the show, Cudlitz had a large mole removed from his right upper lip, which had previously been a signature feature of his appearance. The show was cancelled in 2013.[14] Cudlitz won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role in 2013.[15]

In 2009, Cudlitz appeared in the science fiction film Surrogates as Colonel Brendon. In 2013, Cudlitz played opposite Melanie Griffith in the movie, Dark Tourist.[16]

From February 2014 until October 2016, he appeared in the AMC TV show The Walking Dead as Sergeant Abraham Ford, a character from the comic series of the same name. His first appearance was in the tenth episode of Season 4, an episode entitled “Inmates”.[17] Cudlitz’s character was killed off in the premiere episode of the show’s seventh season entitled “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be“. Due to his portrayal of Abraham, Cudlitz has quickly became a fan favorite since his introduction, with many fans paying homage to his quirky and comedic sayings combined with his upfront approach.[18][19]

Voice work[edit]

Cudlitz supplied the voice of Sgt. Glenn “Hawk” Hawkins in the video game Call of Duty 2: Big Red One. He voiced Corporal Griffen in the video game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its sequel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

“Ezekiel was formerly a zookeeper, and raised the tiger, Shiva, from birth. When Rick meets him, he sees that the “King” has Shiva on a chain, and she’s fiercely protective of her master. Over the next ten issues, we see Shiva in battle, first with Saviors, then with walkers, eventually dying as she saves Ezekiel from certain death by horde.”
