Фо́рест Сти́вен Уи́такер (англ. Forest Steven Whitaker; р. 15 июля 1961) — американский актёр, режиссёр, продюсер. Лауреат премий «Оскар» (2006), «Золотой глобус» (2006), BAFTA (2006), «Эмми» (2003). Он стал четвёртым афроамериканцем, получившим «Оскар» за лучшую мужскую роль после Сидни Пуатье, Дензела Вашингтона и Джейми Фокса[1]. Награда досталась ему за роль президента Уганды, генерала Иди Амина, в фильме «Последний король Шотландии» (2006).

Forest Steven Whitaker (born July 15, 1961) is an American actor, producer, and director. He has earned a reputation for intensive character study work for films such as Bird and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.[1][2] However, for his recurring role as ex-LAPD Lieutenant Jon Kavanaugh on the gritty, award-winning television series, The Shield, Whitaker merely had to draw on his childhood years growing up in South Central Los Angeles, California.[3]

Whitaker won an Academy Award for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland. Whitaker has also won a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA. He became the fourth black man to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, joining the ranks of Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Jamie Foxx.[4]
