Emmy-nominated actor Jonathan Majors cemented himself as the Hollywood actor to watch following his on-screen debut in 2017 in the ABC miniseries When We Rise. His other work for television includes the role of Kang the Conqueror in the hit Marvel series Loki and the role of Atticus Freeman in HBO’s straight-to-series drama Lovecraft Country, for which he earned his first Emmy nomination in addition to Critics’ Choice and NAACP Image award nominations. In February 2019, Majors received rave reviews for his role as Montgomery Allen in Joe Talbot’s The Last Black Man in San Francisco. Marking his first leading role, Majors was soon nominated for a Gotham Award for “Breakthrough Actor,” an Independent Spirit Award for “Best Supporting Male,” and was named a rising young star by The Hollywood Reporter. Majors’ other film credits include Spike Lee’s epic war drama Da 5 Bloods, The Harder They Fall for Netflix, Jungleland, Captive State, White Boy Rick, Hostiles, and Gully. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, his extensive stage credits include Henry V, A Raisin in the Sun, The Tempest, Fences, and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Majors’ current and upcoming film projects include Black Label Media’s Devotion, directed by J.D. Dillard and opening in November 2022; Marvel Studios’ soon-to-be-released Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, opening in February 2023; Creed III, slated for a March 2023 release; and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, anticipated in May 2025.
