Belcher has starred in television dramas including “Power” and “Mercy Street,” PBS’s first original drama to air in more than ten years. McKinley’s newest project, a Netflix series called “Ozark,” is currently filming and set to air in the latter half of 2017. The series also stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney.

A 2006 graduate, Belcher graduated from Belmont with a B.A. in communication studies and a minor in political science. He didn’t start acting until he was convinced by a theater friend who  to audition for “Raisin in the Sun” while still at Belmont. Even though his interest in theater didn’t evolve until college, Belcher said his time on Belmont’s speech and debate team helped develop the creativity he needed to begin his career.
