Pierce was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was one of three sons born to a teacher and a decorated World War II veteran who worked as a maintenance engineer. His father's segregated Army unit helped U.S. Marines win the Battle of Saipan in 1944. Pierce said of his father's experience:
Pierce was raised in the black middle-class community of Pontchartrain Park. It was the first African-American post-war suburb. His father, along with many black veterans, bought into the neighborhood after returning home from the war. The neighborhood was wiped out during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, including Pierce's family home, which was flooded with 14 feet of water.

He then attended the Juilliard School's Drama Division (Group 14: 1981???1985) where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
Pierce has been in over 30 films, appeared in nearly 50 television shows and has performed in dozens of stage productions.
