Brandon T. Jackson Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

A native of Detroit, MI, and the son of [[Performer~P442854~Bishop Wayne T. Jackson~waynetjackson]], Brandon T. Jackson developed an affinity and a knack for comedic antics early in life -- which reportedly helped him survive the monotony and boredom of school and ultimately convinced him to pursue a career as a standup comic-cum-actor. He parlayed his ambition into a series of behind-the-mike routines at local community and church events (including the Motor City Youth Festival), then accepted a role in the teen-oriented urban drama [[Feature~V239787~Nikita Blues~nikitablues]] (which, not coincidentally, was executive produced by his father), and in the early 2000s moved to Los Angeles, essaying a series of bit parts in A-list features including [[Feature~V249601~Ali~ali]] (2001), [[Feature~V261159~8 Mile~8mile]] (2002), and [[Feature~V310125~Roll Bounce~rollbounce]] (2005). Jackson subsequently rose to supporting billing with his turn in the filmmaking-themed farce [[Feature~V389934~Tropic Thunder~tropicthunder]] (2008), starring [[Performer~P19966~Robert Downey Jr.~robertdowneyjr]], [[Performer~P195232~Jack Black~jackblack]], and [[Performer~P112816~Ben Stiller~benstiller]], and directed by [[Performer~P112816~Stiller~benstiller]]. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
