You’ve probably seen Myk Watford on just about every cop show on TV. He has conquered the worlds of CSI, NCIS and every other procedural using an acronym. His most notable being a recurring stint on Dick Wolf’s longest running series Law & Order: SVU.
Along with his veteran presence on television, Myk has appeared in such feature films as the Coen Brothers: No Country For Old Men, Spiderman, Trailer Park of Terror and NY Prison Break opposite Penelope Ann Miller.
2019 is shaping up to be his biggest year yet. This summer Myk stars as “Little Jackie" in the highly anticipated adaptation of DC/Vertigo Comics The Kitchen alongside Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Moss and Tiffany Haddish. Myk can currently be seen in Season 3 of the hit HBO series True Detective in the recurring role of Detective Morelli, as well as the much anticipated second season of The OA playing the recurring role of Detective Eichler.
Myk attended the University of Utah where he was classically trained. He has appeared in over one hundred theatrical productions, including numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway hits such as Take Me Out, Hank Williams: Lost Highway, The Good Negro, Five by Tenn and many more.
Hailing from the Muscle Shoals area of North Alabama, Myk was destined to become a musician.
When he is not on set, you can often find him rockin’ the Hollywood scene with his popular swamp-rockabilly revival band, Stumpwaller.
