Lloyd Michael Warren (born March 5, 1946) is an American retired television actor and former college basketball player, best known for playing Officer Bobby Hill on the NBC television series Hill Street Blues.

Early life[edit]

Warren was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana, the son of Ellen and Grayson Warren.[1] He attended Central High School, where as a senior he was class president.[2] He was twice named to the Indiana all-state team. He graduated in 1964 as Bears' career, season, and single-game scoring leader. In 1992, he was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.[3]

College basketball career[edit]

Warren played college basketball at UCLA, where he was a three-year varsity letterman and starting guard from 1966 to 1968. Led by Lew Alcindor, the Bruins posted records of 30–0 in 1967 and 29–1 in 1968. Both teams, coached by legendary coach John Wooden, captured the NCAA national championship. Warren, the smallest Bruins starter at 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m), averaged 12.4 points as a junior in 1967. He was named to the NCAA All-Tournament team and was an All-American in 1968, one of three on that UCLA team along with Alcindor and guard Lucius Allen. The team is considered one of the best in college basketball history. Warren also earned the award as the Bruins' best defender in 1966, and he won the award as the Bruins' best 'team player' in 1967 and 1968.[4] Alcindor and Warren later crossed paths when Warren was an extra in the hospital flashback scene in the 1980 feature film Airplane! Warren was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame.[5]

In 1979, he starred as police officer Willie Miller on the CBS crime drama Paris, the first effort by Hill Street Blues executive producer Steven Bochco. He guest starred in 'In the House' opposite LL Cool J as Debbie Allen's ex-husband. He also guest starred on the Fox sitcom Living Single as Khadijah's father, and later portrayed Joan's father on the UPN/CW sitcom Girlfriends. Warren played Darrin Dewitt Henson's boss on the Showtime show, Soul Food, in which he played hustler-turned-entrepreneur, Baron Marks. He had a recurring role on the ABC Family series, Lincoln Heights, as Spencer Sutton, Eddie's father.

Warren appeared as Virgil Tibbs' former longtime police partner, Matthew Pogue on the episode of In the Heat of the Night 'The Hammer and the Glove' in 1988. In 1996, he was on the Early Edition episode Hoops. In 2002, he appeared in 'Normal Again', an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as a psychiatrist trying to convince Buffy Summers she is delusional.

His film work includes 1976's Norman... Is That You? with Redd Foxx and Pearl Bailey and as basketball player Easley in the 1971 film Drive, He Said directed by Jack Nicholson. In 1979 he was in Fast Break as Preacher with Gabe Kaplan.

Wardian set the world record for fastest marathon while pushing a jogging stroller from May 2007 to November 2009.[8][19] He set the record at the 2007 Frederick Marathon with a time of 2:42:21. The record was broken at a duel at the 2009 Route 66 marathon by Zac Freudenburg, whose 2:32:10 time beat Wardian's 2:34:37 time.[19]

Wardian also was a former record holder of the fastest Marathon on a treadmill.[8] He qualified and participated in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Men's Olympic Marathon trials.[14][20] Some of the notable ultra-marathons Wardian has completed include the Marathon des Sables, the Western States Endurance Run, the Himalayan 100 Mile Stage Race and the Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Run.[17][21][22] The United States Track and Field Association named Wardian the 2008 and 2009 Ultra Runner of the year.[17][23][24]

In November 2009, Wardian finished third in the IAU World 50K championships held in Gibraltar.[25] In 2010, Wardian finished third at the Marathon des Sables in 23 hours 1 minute 3 seconds, which was the best time ever by an American.[26] In February 2011, the International Association of Ultrarunners named Wardian its inaugural Athlete of the Year.[27]

On July 1, 2010, Wardian set the record for fastest indoor 200-meter track marathon record, with a time of 2:27:21.[28] He qualified for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Marathon trials by running a 2:17:49 at the 2011 Grandma's Marathon.[29] In September 2011, he won the silver medal at the World 100K Championships.[29]

On October 27, 2019, Wardian won the inaugural Marine Corps Marathon 50K with a time of 3:11:52.[35]

When asked in April 2009 why he competes in so many races, Wardian said:

A lot of people say, 'Oh, you could be a 2:12 guy or a 2:14 guy if you just focused on one race a year, or two races a year and really built up.' And I think the counter argument is that you could get hurt and you wouldn't have any races a year. There are so many opportunities out there and, I love to toe the line. I love to see what I can do and just push the limits and try and experiment with myself.

I like that people can look at me, and say, 'Wow, if that guy can do 13 marathons a year and do pretty well maybe I can do one.' I think a lot of people can relate to that. Like, that guy works a real job. He's not a professional runner.[36]
