Glenn Earl Plummer (born August 18, 1961) is an American film and television actor, best known for portraying the roles of Bobby Johnson in South Central, Johnny Beaugh in Ruby's Bucket of Blood, and George 'Blue' Epps in The Corner.

He played Jonas Singer in Saw II.


Glenn Plummer was born in Richmond, California. Throughout his acting career, he has starred in numerous feature films, including Saw II, Colors, Menace II Society, Showgirls, The Salton Sea, Poolhall Junkies, and the compelling drama South Central in the breakout role of "O.G." Bobby Johnson, one of Plummer's most memorable performances.

It was this very moving role that helped solidify Plummer as a staple in the African-American film community. Experiencing much crossover success, Plummer took his abilities to cover a wide range of personas and delved into television. He appeared in television movies and mini-series such as ABC's The Women of Brewster Place, L.A.'s Watt's Riots of 1965, and TNT's Heat Wave and Reversible Errors. Glenn Plummer generated praise and accolades from critics for his performances in Showtime's Ruby's Bucket of Blood, as well as his thought-provoking exhibition in HBO's The Corner, with T.K. Carter and Khandi Alexander.
