For several seasons, Sylvester, a graduate of both Tulane University and St. Augustine High School (Kenneth Brown, Jr.'s also a St. Aug grad), starred as "Griff" on FOX-TV's Married with Children, and in the classic film An Officer and a Gentlemen, starring Richard Gere. Sylvester's other acting credits include CSI: Miami (CBS-TV), Cold Case (CBS-TV), NYPD Blue (ABC-TV), A Different World (NBC-TV and Hill Street Blues (NBC-TV).
