IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy Oscar Award-nominated film THE BLIND SIDE. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI & WGA Award winning, Golden Globe nominated TV show THE WALKING DEAD. IronE's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television. From Atlanta, GA, Singleton's story embodies everything we have come to understand about the lives of many inner city youth growing up in low-income housing projects.
Fatherless and having lost his mother to HIV/AIDS when he was a senior in high school and watched his brother spend most of his life in Georgia's prison system, IronE fought to have a life far different from the one he knew growing up. The "irony" of his story is that, while all the odds were stacked against him, IronE Singleton completed degrees at University. www.ironesingleton.com/
