O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story. His role in the series scored him an Emmy award and brought him to an even bigger fame than he had previously enjoyed.

Bio & Age
Sterling Kelby Brown was born on the 5th day of April 1976, at St Louis, Missouri to father, Sterling Brown Jr – who died in 1986 when young Sterling was barely 10 years old – and his mother, Aralean Banks Brown
He was raised alongside four siblings, two sisters and two brothers; Robert and Armand Brown. Growing up, Sterling was called Kelby but when he turned 16, he made a change preferring to be called Sterling instead. He further explained how the change came about saying his mother told him he made the decision when he was much younger simply because Sterling is eight letters and Kelby is five. But apparently, for the then younger Kelby, a change in his name meant a change from being a child to being an adult.
Sterling K. Brown was raised in a Christian home, and had his early education at Mary Institute & St. Louis Country Day School and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Arts from the Stanford University in 1998. He further had his Masters in Fine Arts from Tisch School of the Arts.

He soon moved on to the big screens appearing in TV shows such as ER, NYPD Blue, JAG, Boston Legal, Alias, and a host of others. While on TV, he maintained a steady appearance on Starved, a comedy sitcom. Waxing stronger, he took the bull by the horn going into movies with appearances in movies like Brown Sugar (2002), Stay (2005) and Trust the Man (2005).
Despite the many other films and TV shows he was involved in, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and This Is Us seem to be his most acclaimed roles till date, especially because they fetched him coveted fame and the awards to show for all of his hard work.
