Rhasaan Orange (born August 25, 1975 in New York City, New York) is an American actor. Orange is most well known for his portrayal of Detective Thomas Edward 'Tek' Kramer on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. As a child, he appeared on the PBS children's series Sesame Street.

Orange is also a black belt in 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu under Eddie Bravo. He has gained some notability as the creator of a fictional carioca Brazilian jiu-jitsu celebrity named Renato Laranja.[1][2][3] The word "Laranja" in Portuguese means "Orange", so the character is somewhat of an alter-ego.
