It's been awhile since I saw the film, so I may be remembering the scene wrong. However, early in the film, when "Tank" is called upstairs for a meeting (which he thinks is a promotion, but which actually is his assignment to essentially be bait), there's a quick shot of some guy staring at the computer monitor showing Tank nervously getting in the elevator (to me, it looked like the boss watching his employee coming upstairs - a bit like Stromberg watching his secretary take the plunge in The Spy Who Loved Me).

In my mind, the guy looked a bit like Ice-T, but I couldn't see his credit in IMDB. I always assumed that that one shot was a setup for either later in the film, or for a potential sequel.

Does anyone know who that guy is?

    Hi Jan, thank you for your answer. One line, mostly link only answers are sometimes not that helpful. The question says 'couldn't see his credit in IMDB' - can you add some detail to justify why this is the right answer?

    Welcome to Movies and TV! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

  • It certainly looks like the guy, and he has an ambiguous enough name within the story. Feb 8, 2012 at 8:33
  • Wikipedia agrees: He also portrayed "Father" in the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. (entry for Keith David)
