Adrian Lester as Mickey Stone in Hustle

Adrian Lester, born August 14, 1968 in Birmingham, England, is a British actor of African descent.

Lester is probably best known in the United Kingdom as big-time con artist Mickey "Bricks" Stone in the BBC TV series Hustle, and in the United States for his role as campaign manager Henry Burton in Mike Nichols' 1998 film Primary Colors, based on the novel by Anonymous (Joe Klein). His character is believed to represent George Stephanopoulos. This part earned him a Chicago Film Critics Association award nomination for "Most Promising Actor."

Lester appeared in Kenneth Branagh's Love's Labour's Lost, an adaptation of the eponymous William Shakespeare play, set in the 1930s. The film itself was poorly received, but Lester received a British Independent Film Awards nomination for his performance.

Also, in The Day After Tomorrow, Lester has a minor role as Simon, one of the three researchers who drink a toast of "Twelve-year-old Scotch" shortly before freezing to death.

Lester is married to actress Lolita Chakrabarti, and they have two daughters, Lila and Jasmine.
