Ser'Darius William Blain (born 10 March 1987; age 33) is an actor and singer-songwriter who appeared as a security lieutenant in Star Trek Into Darkness. The end credits of the film are listing him as "U.S.S. Enterprise Red Shirt".
Blain is perhaps best known for his role as Woody in Paramount Pictures' 2011 remake of their film Footloose. He also played the recurring role of Carter on the short-lived ABC Family comedy-drama series Jane by Design in 2012.
One of Blain's earliest acting jobs was a role in a 2010 episode of Meet the Browns, one of the several comedy series created by popular filmmaker and Star Trek actor Tyler Perry. Blain has since guest-starred on The Vampire Diaries and NCIS. He will also be seen in the upcoming sports drama film When the Game Stands Tall.
