Sterling K. Brown is an American actor.
The common name is practically certain, but it appears in my personal database with the two aliases:

Righteous Kill (2008) as Sterling K. Brown
Angels in America (2003) as Sterling Brown

In your opinion, is it the same person?


Documentation:
IMDb
IMDb
Wikipedia

from CLT:
Sterling K. Brown (143/642)
Sterling Brown (5/33)

The orderly in Angels in America is none of the people pictured on IMBD. Unfortunately in the scene I've found he is wearing a surgical mask and goggles:

I'm sorry to "butt" in, but I see a lot of referrals to IMDb.
We must remember that this site is not too reliable, as it has proven and shown over all the years.
Nor has it gotten any better.

It is crucial that we first and foremost identify one person over several productions before we jump over to the CLT "looking for answers".
It's to start in the wrong end.
The CLT is merely a tool, which you must be careful to use.
There are thousands upon thousands of errors already in the CLT.

Other than that, the "main" Sterling K. Brown has done quite a lot and has rarely been uncredited, while the other seems to only have gotten a few minor parts.
And for the third guy, who knows.

We know very well that it is not a reliable source.
But a starting point is needed...

By the way, the eyes look the same to me...
For me it's the same person.

I think it's wrong for various reasons:

In the screenshot of greyghost, taken from Angels in America (2003),
it is clearly seen that he is a black person unlike the IMDb photo...

Additionally, The Good wife (2011), appears on the other IMDb page and on the Wikipedia page.

A screenshot of The Good wife: S03E04 (which unfortunately I don't own) would remove all doubts...

... that was the point. And, the photo is part of the official CBS marketing material, which it makes it a little bit more reliable than an user upload. The fact which I can not prove is: who added the tags to this photo?

Edit: the same picture is presented on the CBS site, which strongly supports the theory, that the white guy in the middle is another Sterling Brown, who is not correctly listed on IMDb. ... neither on Wikipedia.

To fix everything we need to get a screenshot of Army Wives: S02E01,02 and see if the character who plays Roland is black or white...

I'd do it myself, but I don't own the series...

So in the same episode, there are both actors?

We're really lucky, as detectives...

Army Wives is free to watch on IMBD TV



But, since I'm just a user uploading a screenshot, it's probably useless.

CBS Official page

In Fourth Episode of Season 3 of The Good Wife,

*In the first photo there is a white boy (on the center) who seems to be called Andrew Boylan.

*In the third photo, there is a black man with glasses (on the left) who seems to be called Andrew Boylan.


Conclusions:

Despite being the official page, it is clearly a mistake.
(unless, in the episode in question, we are talking about a case of homonymy in court...
in that case, we're screwed...  )

I believe the actor in the first photo on the CBS page is Tim Peper whose credit in that episode is Travis Dolan.

Yes, that's him.
