Biography

Eddie Steeples always wanted to become an actor. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Houston, Texas as the eldest of eight children. After graduating from high school in 1992, he moved to Santa Cruz, California, where he studied theatre and later studied with the St. Louis Black Repertory Theatre, and briefly at Howard University, before moving to New York City. There Steeples joined the experimental film group "Mo-Freek" and a hip-hop group called "No Surrender." He starred in several "Mo-Freek" productions before landing a lead in the award winning short film "Whoa," which led to his discovery by Los Angeles casting directors. Subsequent roles in the feature film "Torque," a guest appearance on "The Chris Rock Show," and national recognition as the "Rubberband Man" in a series of commercials for OfficeMax catapulted his television and film career, leading to an Emmy nomination for the commercial and being named one of People Magazines' "Sexiest Men Alive." Steeples then played the role of Darnell Turner a.k.a. Harry Monroe a.k.a. "Crab Man" as a series regular on the hit NBC comedy series "My Name Is Earl," which ran for four seasons. More recently he has been seen as a recurring guest star on "Raising Hope," a lead in the feature "Jiu Jitsu" alongside Nicholas Cage, and a Series Regular on "The Guest Book."
