Harry Lennix, who played a general in “Man of Steel” and the assistant director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division on NBC’s “The Blacklist,” has quietly become a prolific producer with three movie projects already completed.

He’s starred in and financed “H4,” a street version of William Shakespeare’s “Henry IV”; “Mr. Sophistication,” chronicling the journey of a stand-up comedian inspired by Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor; and “Revival,” a gospel concert movie starring Mali Music, described by Lennix as “‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ meets ‘The Wiz.'”
