Ray Fisher (born 1986/1987) is an American stage actor, best known for his roles in the comedy The Good, the Bad and the Confused. Ray was discovered after playing Muhammad Ali in Will Power's Fetch Clay, Make Man in 2013, and is known for his big-screen debut playing Victor Stone / Cyborg in the DC Extended Universe.
Fisher grew up in Lawnside, New Jersey and attended Haddon Heights High School. It was there that he was introduced to theatre by his high school English teacher. He was active in the school's theatre and choir program and sang in his church's choir.
In 2009, Fisher acted in William Shakespeare's play, Macbeth, at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison, New Jersey at Drew University. Fisher gained 20 pounds of muscle in order to portray Muhammad Ali in the 2013 Off-Broadway production of Fetch Clay, Make Man at the New York Theatre Workshop in New York City.
Fisher portrayed the superhero Victor Stone / Cyborg in the film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will reprise his role in Justice League and its sequel, and has a contract to appear as the character in other films as well. On October 15, 2014, it was announced that Fisher will reprise the role in his own solo Cyborg film in 2020. On getting cast, Fisher said, "I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film. I’m a long-game player and didn’t see any of this happening until at least my 40's. It’s a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now." Fisher will also reprise his role in the upcoming film The Flash.
