Hooks next major opportunity would be in the 1972 film “Sounder”, in which he played Paul Winfield’s character’s pre-teen elder son, needing to be the man of the family during the Depression – Paul along with Cicely Tyson would be nominated for Academy Awards for their performances. He then became a part of Gordon Parks Jr.’s last film “Aaron Loves Angela”, playing a withdrawn teenager, and partnered with Irene Cara.

In 1986, he then starred in “He’s the Mayor”, but which was short lived.

He then directed “Passenger 57” which starred Wesley Snipes, and “Fled” which starred Laurence Fishburne. He also worked as the producer and director of the series “Prison Break”, directing a total of 13 episodes for the show. Next, during the first season of the show “Lost” he directed two episodes entitled “White Rabbit” and “Homecoming”, and then became a part of the television remake of the film “Sounder”, which he directed, following which in 2009, he worked on the film “Prison Break: The Final Break”.
One of his latest projects is the 2017 miniseries “Madiba”, which is about the life of the late Nelson Mandela, and stars Laurence Fishburne in the role of Mandela.
