Hector began acting immediately after high school when he auditioned for a community theater company. He then enrolled in college while he continued to audition and book roles on New York Undercover, Third Watch, Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Beat, and Oz. His film work dates back to Spike Lee’s Clockers. From there he went on to appear in He Got Game, Ghost Dog, Prison Song, and Everyday People. Hector attributes a defining moment in his career to the short film Five Deep Breaths directed by Seith Mann. With Hector in the lead role Five Deep Breaths was an Official Selection of the Cannes, Sundance, Tribeca, and IFP Film Festivals; it went on to accumulate 16 awards. David Simon, the creator of The Wire, cited Five Deep Breaths as the movie that brought Hector to his attention.[2] He is currently working in the film Blackout with Melvin Van Peebles and Jeffrey Wright, and featured as recurring villain Benjamin "Knox" Washington in the third season of Heroes. He is also featured in the 2008 film Max Payne, in which he plays the role of Lincoln DeNeuf, a Haitian crime boss. In 2002 Hector had a brief role in the movie Paid in Full. He is also the voice of SPARTAN-III Emile in the video game Halo: Reach.220px-Jamie_Hector_at_the_2008_Tribeca_Film_Festival
