Lucius Baston Junior, the youngest of three boys, was born in South Richmond Hill Queens, NY to a father who was Army veteran turned transportation (train) conductor and a mother who was a nurse and home maker. Lucius played high school basketball, and was an 11-year-old disk jockey (DJ) in the early days of Hip-Hop music. Following grade school, Lucius enlisted to the United States Air Force, where he was active duty for 11 years. Shortly after separating from the Air Force, working in the computer chip industry, and becoming an on air personality, Lucius's love for music and passion for show business would lead him to pursue a career in acting.
Lucius has since aggressively built an impressive body of work with roles in Emmy & Golden Globe Award winning shows like Atlanta (2016), Roots (2016), and Homeland (2011) as well as appearances in Netflix's Stranger Things (2016), OWN's Queen Sugar (2016) & Love Is_ (2018), HBO's Treme (2010) and Tyler Perry's House of Payne (2006). Also, supporting roles in films such as The Best of Enemies (2019), The Front Runner (2018), Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009), and Ride Along (2014), just to name a few. Now developing projects of his own, Lucius is focused on producing content for multimedia platforms with Seeing being his first feature length film.
Lucius is an extraordinarily versatile actor and producer. He now lives in Atlanta, GA.
