Foree was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He began acting in the 1970s, appearing in the 1976 film The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings and the films The Wanderers and Dawn of the Dead. He also had roles in the films The Dentist (1996), From Beyond (1986) and Knightriders (1981). In 1995 he starred in an X-Files episode.

Foree also played the role of Roger Rockmore, Kenan and Kyra's father on the Nickelodeon sitcom Kenan & Kel with Teal Marchande as his wife, Sheryl.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
