Biography: Michael Beach (born October 30, 1963) is an African-American actor, who rose to prominence playing a teacher in Morgan Freeman's Lean On Me. However, Beach has recently been stereotyped playing abusive men who hits their wife, paticularly in the video to the Stevie Wonder/Babyface duet How Long?, where he abuses on his wife, played by Victoria Rowell, climaxing with her killing him. He also caused a minor shock when he bares his buttocks acting a love scene with Gina Ravera in Soul Food, something that many black male actors do not do.
