Hubert Point-Du Jour

The consummate New York actor, Tisch graduate Hubert Point-Du Jour has performed in over 20 plays commissioned by the likes of the Old Globe (The Two Gentleman of Verona), the Public (Tiny Beautiful Things) and Shakespeare in the Park (Kenny Leon’s Much Ado About Nothing) and has been honored in two Obie Award-winning productions (A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes; A Map of Virtue), all while simultaneously balancing a growing television career. After a string of appearances on Happyish, Madam Secretary, The Path, Blindspot and Elementary, he recently made his series regular debut alongside Ethan Hawke in Showtime’s series The Good Lord Bird. An adaptation of James McBride’s novel by the same name, the series follows Hawke’s abolitionist John Brown as he leads Point-Du Jour’s Bob, Joshua Caleb Johnson’s Onion and a small army of anti-slavery insurgents on a journey to raid the federal armory in Harpers Ferry in effort to ignite a slave revolt. Point-Du Jour is currently filming Peacock’s Dr. Death opposite Joshua Jackson, Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater. (Photo by Eric Hobbs.)
