About Me

Jermel Howard is a passionate major network Actor, Author, and Writer. If you've been living under a rock and do not know who this amazing gentleman is let's get you hip to the game! From the heart of Long Island, New York where there wasn't much opportunity in the community.  Let's be honest though - everything truly awesome comes out of NYC. He then ventured out in pursuit of mastering his craft. In his search, he found that all he truly needed was to focus on his dream and to have the will to keep pushing forward, in preparation for the opportunity (even if times seem bad). Being able to have confidence in yourself as well as what you do is a beautiful thing.  Learning this sharpened his mind and skill set. He has made appearances as guest-star/co-star on award-winning Television shows and Films.


Acting opportunities such as the one and only “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”;  "Oz" 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 catch Howard in The First Purge playing Lorenzo "Zo" 


In March of 2017, Jermel is currently featured in the VH-1’s “The Breaks” SPRITE commercial. “I had a ball doing this commercial”, states Howard who co-stars alongside fellow actor Mack Wilds.


Currently streaming on Lifetime TV is The Salt -N- Peppa Biopic as Treach.  


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.
