Amin Joseph plays “Jerome Saint,” Cissy's brother and Franklin's uncle. Jerome is now working with Franklin as the drug business expands, but with this success comes more burdens and responsibilities Jerome had neither anticipated, nor wanted.
Joseph is continuing to make his mark in Hollywood, recently appearing in Paramount’s blockbuster reboot of Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra. He is also shooting a role in Johnny Depp’s City of Lies, a thriller about the investigation of the murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. In just 12 years, he’s amassed over five dozen film and television credits.
Joseph has appeared in The Expendables and Homefront, written by Sylvester Stallone for Lionsgate; G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson; the film festival darling Dope, which competed at Sundance Film Festival and went on to screen at the Cannes Film Festival and the Deauville American Film Festival in 2015; The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg and Frank Darabont’s 2007 horror film The Mist (based on the story by Stephen King) among many others.
In 2004, Joseph made his small screen debut in the action drama Rage and Discipline. A few years later he reunited with Darabont for FX’s hit series The Shield and had a recurring role on TNT's L.A. Noir. Joseph also starred in the Cinemax series Zane’s Sex Chronicles and Zane’s The Jump Off, both written by Zane. His additional TV credits include appearances on major shows such as Sons of Anarchy, Southland, NCIS and CSI: Miami, among others.
His production company, Dark Energy Pictures, specializes in action, horror, and sci-fi content spanning digital, television and feature films. The company’s recent film Call Me King, an international action thriller, embodies their focus on multicultural, lingual and ethnic content.
Joseph's charitable work includes time with the grassroots organization The Awareness Movement in Los Angeles, focusing on creating content to facilitate a positive dialogue between local communities and law enforcement, and he’s committed to empowering disenfranchised voters in urban communities. He also volunteers with several schools throughout Los Angeles, providing scene study classes with a focus on African American classic playwrights.
Joseph is a graduate of Howard University and a protégé of the World Famous Apollo Theater in his hometown Harlem, NY, where he interned during his youth. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
