Washington played one of Benjamin Juma's soldiers during Season 7 of 24. His character was at 44543 Lambourne Marina with Juma's other soldiers, and wheeled away the ramp from the boat they boarded. He then got on board the boat, and was the first to exit the cabin as they prepared to dive into the Potomac river.
When the team entered the White House, Washington's character shot dead two staffers. He was later present outside the locked panic room, until Juma sent him to find Olivia Taylor. After Udo found her and Aaron Pierce, Washington's character accompanied them back to Juma and the panic room was opened, whereupon Washington escorted the president out.
Washington appeared in a total of 3 episodes, but wasn't credited for his role.
