Ving Rhames is an amazing actor who, though he hasn't held any major starring roles, never the less manages to steal most of the scenes he acts in.

Rhames was born as Irving Rhames in New York, New York on May 12, 1959 and was educated at the Julliard School, also in New York. He got the nickname Ving from his roommate at SUNY Purchase (where he studied for a short time), Stanley Tucci.

He is probably best well known for his roles as Marsellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction and as Luther Stickell in Mission: Impossible and Mission: Impossible 2.

These two roles exemplify the type of character that Ving Rhames is perfect for playing: the big black guy who you really really don't want to fuck with.

Most of this info, of course, taken from the IMDB.
