Early life[edit]

Several television appearances followed on shows such as Law & Order: SVU and The Twilight Zone. In 2004, while recurring on Third Watch, Williams booked a role alongside Michael Madsen in the ESPN original series Tilt. Once he moved to Los Angeles in 2005, he secured numerous guest leads on shows such as CSI, CSI: Miami, and the CW’s The Game. In addition, he landed another lead role with Anthony Anderson in the indie film, The Last Stand. Williams also portrayed the role of Connor Jordan in season 4 of the CW's The Vampire Diaries [2] In 2010, after spending two seasons on the USA Network series In Plain Sight, he landed a series regular role on the Fox series The Chicago Code[3] which premiered on February 7, 2011.[4]
