He also appears in promotional spots for the Wii video game Punch-Out!! portraying the character Doc Louis. In 2007 he played Ethan Banks in Enchanted. Whitlock played an insurance agent named Ronald Wilkes in the 2011 film Cedar Rapids. Wilkes is a self-described fan of The Wire and does an impersonation of character Omar Little.
