Carl Franklin

Actor, Director & Producer Known for "Devil in a Blue Dress"

Carl Franklin Biography

Carl Franklin is an actor, screenwriter, and director. He is most known for the film Devil in a Blue Dress, which starred Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle.

Franklin first began acting in off-Broadway performances in New York City, before beginning his on-screen career with Five on the Black Hand Side. He portraied Captain Crane on the 1980s series The A-Team.

Franklin supports the portrayal of African-American history in films, and has been quoted as saying, “I am interested in the universal values of the black experience.” However, just because Franklin is a filmmaker who is African American does not mean that all of his films are racially motivated. Not all of his films revolve around a central theme of culture: some of his films cover racial issues, while others do not. Franklin maintains a wide subject range in his films, choosing not to focus solely on his heritage.

Franklin has also directed for several well-known Netflix shows, including "House of Cards," "13 Reasons Why" and "Mindhunter."
