Darrin Dewitt Henson played Lem Van Adams on the hit Television series Soul Food for five seasons. Henson gave a compelling performance of a street hustler turned husband, father and businessman.

  His character struggles to balance a drama-free life embodying loyalty to his family with an unstable past life, which included familial dysfunction and repeated prison stays.
Depicting Lem was no difficult task for Henson because he believes there’s a little Lem in every brother. In Henson’s words: “We all want to fight through adversities and feed our families.”
With Soul Food wrapped, Henson is increasing his repertoire by showing off his directing skills in the movie Violation. Starring Malik Yoba (New York Undercover) and Cynda Williams (Dorothy Dandridge Story and Mo Better Blues), Violation depicts two Gulf War veterans whose relationship may be compromised by their opposing outlooks on war.


Most recently Henson had a lead role in Sony Screen Gems STOMP THE YARD. STOMP THE YARD opened #1 at the box office, taking in 21 million its first weekend. Darrin plays Grant, the lead stepper of Mu Gamma, the 7 year step champions.
Darrin can currently be seen in the HBO Film LIFE SUPPORT also starring Queen Latiffah which debuted March10th. Darrin will follow this up with THE SALON starring Vivica A. Fox due out May 11, 2007. He is currently filming A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND.
As an incomparable choreographer whose dance abilities has blessed such artists as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and N-Sync, Henson got his start with the late legendary hip hop DJ, Scott La Rock at age 14, when he joined La Rock’s Vermont school tour.
Henson’s most recognizable dance routine by far is N-Sync’s Bye, Bye, Bye. His video, Darrin’s Dance Grooves, has also proven successful and he looks forward to starting production on a movie version in the future.
