He is perhaps best known as the headstrong attorney Jonathan Rollins on the NBC legal drama L.A. Law (for seven years). The smart and exceptionally handsome African-American actor was trained in musical theater at Carnegie-Mellon after which he moved to New York and got a break on his second day there by landing a part on The Cosby Show (1984). He made his film debut at age 21 in Krush Groove (1985) and appeared that same year on One Life to Live (1968) before the role of attorney Jonathan Rollins in the hit dramatic series, L.A. Law (1986). He went on to appear in a number of prestigious TV dramas such as Murder in Mississippi (1990), Heat Wave (1990) and Mama Flora's Family (1998).

Blair's theater credits include Measure for Measure at the 1993 New York Shakespeare Festival, as well as El Negro en Peru, The Game of Love and Chance and Love Letters. On film, he has yet to break out into top stardom but has shown great potential playing men of integrity in a number of supporting roles, including Gattaca (1997), Deep Impact (1998),The Wishing Tree (1999) and Full Frontal (2002). His flashy, atypical performance as a vicious murderer in Just Cause (1995) and a psychotic stalker in Asunder (1999) have also earned him positive attention. Blair Underwood stirred up a bit of controversy as director, executive producer, co-writer and star of the 30-minute dramatic film, The Second Coming (1992), in which he portrayed Jesus Christ coming back to earth as a man of color. In addition, he produced and starred in the short film, Sister, I'm Sorry (1994). Blair also has five music videos to his directing credit.
