In the Person of Interest episode “Truth Be Told,” Reese’s (James Caviezel) cover is threatened. His latest POI has ties to his former colleagues in the CIA. While Root (Amy Acker) and Finch (Michael Emerson) come up with a plan to help, Reese will have to fight for his life — that includes throwing a punch at CIA Agent Terence Beale.
Beale is portrayed by Keith David. He’s known for his roles on Community (Elroy Patashnick/Narrator), Big Time in Hollywood, FL (Agent Everett Malloy), Enlisted (Sgt. Major Donald Cody), 7th Heaven (Stanley Sunday), ER (Pastor Watkins), among others. David is also recognized for his roles in the films Crash (Lt. Dixon), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Father), There’s Something About Mary (Mary’s dad), Platoon (King), and The Thing (Childs). Fun fact about David: He played Keith the Handyman on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood in the mid-1980s. Person of Interest airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CBS.
