Jason Mitchell is an American actor.
JASON MITCHELL (Mills) has steadily been building a reputation as an actor on the rise. He achieved critical acclaim for his portrayal of the iconic Eazy E in the 2015 N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” starring opposite Paul Giamatti under the direction of F Gary Gray. He beat out competition from around the country for this coveted role. Mitchell won the African American Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance, in addition to sharing Best Motion Picture Ensemble Award nominations with his fellow castmates at both the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Critics’ Choice Awards. He also received Variety and San Diego International Film Festival’s Rising Star Award in 2016 for his work in the film.
He was recently seen in Vikram Gandhi’s “Barry,” for Netflix, the story of Obama’s college days in New York City, and Dee Rees’ “Mudbound,” shot in New Orleans, which received critical acclaim at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
Mitchell will next be seen in Kathryn Bigelow’s currently untitled Detroit Riots Project, as well as “The Chi” for Showtime, a timely and distinctive coming-of-age story that follows a half dozen interrelated characters in the South Side of Chicago.
