Kip Weeks

Biography

Actor Kip Weeks revealed a gift for playing genial American everymen, often with a jocky edge. He initially attained high-profile visibility for his evocation of Togo Railey -- one of the few Caucasian basketball players on a mostly black team at Texas Western University, circa 1962 -- in Jerry Bruckheimer's inspirational sports drama Glory Road (2006). Following that assignment, Weeks did an about-face and switched genres (dodging the threat of typecasting as well) with his portrayal of a masked burglar who systematically terrorizes a suburban couple in Bryan Bertino's tense psychological thriller The Strangers (2008). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
