Mike grew up in St. Matthews, South Carolina, where he attended Calhoun County High School, and after matriculating went to Benedict College. He spent a year there and later transferred to the University of South Carolina, where he studied theatre and graduated with his bachelor’s degree in 1999. He then attended Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts to get an MFA in acting.

Colter started his acting career in 2002, with guest roles in “ER” and “The Parkers”. Two years later, he was cast in one of his most notable roles in “Million Dollar Baby”, playing boxer Big Willie Little. The film was directed and co-produced by Clint Eastwood and received high acclaim, winning four Academy Awards. His net worth started to increase as more opportunities opened up for him, and afterwards Colter would go and make guest appearances in “The Good Wife”, Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, and “Law & Order: Trial By Jury”. He also starred in several television films, including “Silver Bells”, and “Taking Chance”. In 2011, he became the co-star of the series “Ringer”, also starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, airing for 22 episodes in its first season, however, it was cancelled soon afterwards.

In 2014, Mike joined the “Halo” franchise, becoming the star of the series “Halo: Nightfall”, a digital feature produced by Ridley Scott. In the feature, he played Agent Jameson Locke in the origin story. The feature tied in with the video game “Halo 5: Guardians”, in which Mike did motion capture for Agent Locke, but the character was voiced by Ike Amadi. Afterwards, Mike found his way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, co-starring in the series “Jessica Jones”, playing the comic book character Luke Cage. The series was released in 2015 through Netflix and received critical acclaim, and so has been renewed for a second season set to release in 2018.

1Deep voice
1I have a wonderful wife I met at Rutgers while we were both there. She was in the Ph.D. program. She is not an actress. She definitely brings balance to my life. We actors can tend to bore anyone with shop talk.
2I hate the gym, so I try to diversify my workouts with swimming and basketball. Indoors, it's less boring than running. I do find that diet is key. I eat lots of lean protein, no soda, no fast food or fried foods, and a lot of water. But I love food and often cook.
3As for facial hair, I think I decided it was a good look after graduate school. I always shave it myself and trim my own beard. I change the look depending on the role. For 'Million Dollar Baby,' I had no facial hair. For 'Men in Black 3,' I had no facial hair but did wear a wig.
4I'm one of those people who is color blind to a certain degree. And that doesn't mean I'm not acutely aware of race in our country and abroad and in the world. I know what's going on, and I'm very aware of it.
5Having worked on 'Halo: Nightfall' and gotten a taste for what 'Halo' has to offer, it definitely has me interested in picking up the games and getting familiarized more with the 'Halo' universe.
6When you're acting, it's all about you and the person in front of you, and I think in life we forget to apply the same technique, and we get caught up in the panic of what we're trying to do - how overwhelmingly daunting the task of trying to become an actor is.
7Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories - because you're telling big stories with a heart at the center of it - and that's what connects all of the characters to our audience members.
8I've always wanted to be on a show that's well respected and had critical acclaim and that people like to watch, and at the same time find something that, for me, as an actor, is interesting and challenging.
9The big budget films have money to do things that are not necessarily essential but sure are comforting. The catering is usually much better. And you have way more of anything you could possibly need. You definitely get a trailer. My shirt and suit for 'Million Dollar Baby' were tailor made.
10I'm always game for creating a new character, and I liked the idea of putting something new into the 'Halo' universe.
11Ridley Scott was part of the production team on 'The Good Wife.' I auditioned on my iPhone, and it moved very quickly after that, as they thought I was right for the role, and pretty soon I was filming in Iceland for two months.
12As artists, we are so not in control most of the time of the content or the narrative of our characters, and sometimes writing takes a turn and it's not something we necessarily have control over. It's just a lot of random dumb luck, so when things click, you've just got to enjoy it.
13As an actor, you just want to continue to work on things that you like. You can be in this business a long time and consistently working and just be totally artistically unfulfilled.
14As an actor, you're trying to capture the nuances of real life, but voice work is almost over-acting.
