Jason Mitchell has been acting since 2010. He has scored parts on the big and small screens including Contraband and TNT’s Major Crimes. But his breakthrough role came with last year’s Straight Outta Compton.
The actor sent in his audition tape after he heard about the N.W.A. biopic. The actor studied video footage of Eazy (né Eric Wright) and listened to his music until he could mimic the late rapper’s speech and mannerisms.
He was invited to a callback in L.A. about three weeks later. He couldn’t afford to fly to Cali, so he Skyped with director F. Gary Gray instead. By the time he finished the meeting, he was booked as Eazy-E.
Jason who began acting at age 23, was looking to make a positive change in his life, one that up until he began taking acting classes included real struggle and some illegal activity and a stint in jail.
The New Orleans-based actor has revealed he lived the street life as the child of a single mother, who struggle to keep him and his sister afloat. He turned for good and decided to take acting to the next level after he was arrested fro selling drugs.
Not much is known about his romantic life. The actor –who is the father of a young daughter –sure has been enjoying his new found fame. He is active on social media and often posts about partying. If he is in fact in a relationship, we don’t think his girlfriend will like to know how he treated the alleged victim, no matter the circumstances. Any thought, comments?
