Only fourteen years old when he was cast as Jake Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Cirroc Lofton already had appeared in the feature film Beethoven, and on television in the series Moesha and Smart Guy. Over the next seven years, Lofton went from a small, gawky teenager to an athletic young man whose height topped that of his stage father Avery Brooks. After DS9, Lofton’s height served him well on the series The Hoop Life. He later guest-starred on Soul Food, 7th Heaven and CSI: Miami. Lofton has appeared in the movie Trekkies 2 and an independent feature, The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks. His most recent motion picture role was in Ball Don’t Lie, starring Rosanna Arquette, which screened at the Tribeca Film Festival.
