Biography: Charles Dumas has been part of the acting profession since the 1960s, when his original love was the theatre. He left for many years and focussed on teaching, eventually taking a position as an associate professor of Theater and African and African American studies at Penn State, but returned to acting in 1983, soon landing a minor role in the film Jumpin' Jack Flash. Minor roles continued, leading to appearances on Law & Order and 100 Centre Street, and beginning in 2001 he played the recurring role of Judge LaRue on the NBC series Ed, which led to a number of his students getting roles as extras on the series. Dumas continues his duties as a professor at Penn State, but continues to act from time to time as well, and is also a noted playwright.
