A three-time Emmy nominee, Dondré Whitfield’s career has spanned over a quarter century and has seen him work with industry heavyweights like John Travolta, Helen Mirren, David Oyelowo, Michael B. Jordan, and Kevin Hart, to name a few. Dondré was a series regular on the Ava DuVernay series QUEEN SUGAR for OWN playing Remy Newell, a role which earned a nomination for a 2018 NAACP Award. Dondré also recently starred in the hit BET comedy series “Real Husbands of Hollywood” opposite Kevin Hart, Boris Kodjoe, and Nick Cannon, and also did the pilot COMPANY TOWN for the CW.
Whitfield’s versatility as a comedic and dramatic actor has been showcased in several of his feature films as well, including the Independent Spirit Award-winning and Sundance Award-winning film “Middle of Nowhere” opposite David Oyelowo that was directed by Ava DuVernay, the comedy “35 and Ticking” opposite Kevin Hart, the award-nominated drama “Pastor Brown” opposite Michael B. Jordan, the comedies “Mr. 3000” opposite Bernie Mac and “Two Can Play That Game” opposite Vivica A. Fox and the Helen Mirren directed film, “Happy Birthday” opposite Helen Mirren and John Goodman.
Dondré’s most recent and perhaps most impressive role is not on the screen but in his community. Dondre is the co-creator of The Manhood Tour, a global movement committed to awakening the consciousness of men, giving them the keys to manhood, and teaching them how to live it to the highest degree. Whitfield travels throughout the country speaking on behalf of the movement.
