Malik Yoba -- Undercover Brother

10/21/2008 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Malik Yoba starred as Detective J.C. Williams in "New York Undercover" back in the mid 90s -- and has since played a cop on "CSI: Miami," "Raines" and at least five other shows. Good to see he hasn't been typecast.

Better than being typecast as a criminal.

Undercover I get, but unless you know whether the gentleman has siblings, the use of "brother" signals ugliness within TMZ's soul. (If it has one.)

Don't forget his great role in a Danish comedy "Ohh happy day" Trust me he is not at criminel in that one..
Great movie.. Love him in it. :-)

Perhaps he can share an apartment with Bobby Brown and spend some of Whitney's settlement money ... Do either one of them have a valid driver's license or the right to vote? That's a BIIIIIG NO!

Why the hate? Malik has been around for a while...I don't remember him getting into trouble and all the other nonsense.
I always liked him a lot. The girl from the show is now on Dexter and I've seen the other guy in a few things. They are all still drama. Good for them.

And maybe I am naive #2...but maybe TMZ was just trying to make a joke...a play on New York Undercover and Eddie Griffin's movie Undercover know...both shows were about cops/spies who were undercover.

Don't forget he played Yul Brenner in Cool Runnings based on the real life Jamaican Bobsled team!

Malik Yoba is doing big things in Hollywood. Those who are not there would not know, He's the kindest guy and well respected by his peers. He was amazing in Tyler Perry's Why Did I get Married last year . It was #1 at the box office and that Danish film , Oh happy Day shows his range. He does good cop, but truth be known he does good everything. The man is talented. I think he even has an albume out. He's hosting and in theatre production business. Chcek out his Myspace.comn page ..his work is really amazing and the blogs are poignant.
