Jermel Howard is a passionate major network Actor, Author, and writer. He started in the heart of Long Island, New York where there wasn't much opportunity in the community. He then ventured out in pursuit of mastering his craft. In his search, he found that all he truly needed was "Focus on his dream" and the will to keep pushing forward (even if times seem bad), in preparation for the opportunity. Learning this sharpened his mind, and skill set. His guest-star/co-star appearances have been on award-winning Television shows and films.

 

Acting opportunities such as “Law & Order” (2011), NYC 22 (2012) produced by Robert Deniro; “Golden Boy”(2013), “Major Crimes” (2013); the role of Donte’ in the Netflix hit series “Orange Is The New Black”; and “Person of Interest” (2014) 

 

He's worked alongside top A-List Actors/Actresses making him a well-seasoned actor. Howard has landed recurring roles on Marvel Luke Cage, Starz Power Season 4. Currently filmed the role of Tyrone in “Trap Queen” alongside Lance Gross in the Irv Gotti inspired television series, “TALES” which will air this fall on BET and TIDAL. This is a lyrically inspired series that focuses on the lines from infamous hip-hop verses.

 

With regards to film, Howard played the role of Mopreme, Tupac’s brother, in the highly anticipated movie, “All Eyez On Me”. “Roxanne, Roxanne” is another film set to release. In this film, Howard will play the role of Roland the Rapper. No release date has yet to be set for this film.

You can see Howard in the upcoming film The First Purge in theatres July 4, 2018, playing Lorenzo "Zo"

 

He has the ambition, studious quality to learn more, and the humbleness that every set he has been on loves about him. He's been on several radio shows throughout the states and Internet shows giving back to the communities by offering insight he's learned. With the things he needs to do for his family on his mind he approaches this industry with a sense of hunger, and focus, and passion which gives him an edge.
