Ser’Darius Blain has quickly made his mark in Hollywood as one of the most in demand young talents for his ability to captivate audiences and command praise. Up next, Ser’Darius will star alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black in the highly anticipated Sony blockbuster JUMANJI. Set for release on July 28th, 2017, he will play Anthony “Fridge” Johnson in the Jake Kasdan-directed continuation of the ’95 original.
Since graduating from The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in 2009, Ser’Darius has built an impressive resume that lends itself to his diverse talents. His first big break came immediately after he relocated to Los Angeles, when he was cast as football sensation “Woody” in Paramount’s hit 2011 remake of FOOTLOOSE. He quickly followed with a supporting role in the JJ Abrams directed sequel STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. 2013 proved to be a groundbreaking year for Ser’Darius when he landed roles in 3 feature films, including a lead in Sony Pictures’ football drama WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL, Chain Reaction film’s MAYBE SOMEDAY and the Gitmo Prison drama Camp X-Ray starring Kristen Stewart which made its debut to a sold out crowd at Sundance Film Festival in 2014.
In between films, Ser’Darius has also made his presence widely known across the small screen. Most recently, he had a recurring guest starring role in the second season of Starz hit comedy Survivor’s Remorse where he played Jupiter Blackmon, the out-of-control party boy and top pick in the upcoming NFL draft. Additional memorable roles include NBC’s Chicago PD where he appeared on the highest rated episode entitled “The Cases That Need to Be Solved,” as well as Showtime’s Shameless, The Vampire Diaries, and he was also a series regular on ABC Family’s Jane By Design.
Continuing his moment, Ser’Darius will showcase his range in two additional films coming out in 2017. He will star alongside Mira Sorvino in the indie thriller BENEATH THE LEAVES, where he plays a young cop, who along with his adult foster brothers, are being hunted down by a serial killer from their childhood. Switching gears, Ser’Darius will star in BOLDEN! which lends a biographical look at the rise and fall of the man who most historians consider the inventor of Jazz, Buddy Bolden. Blain lends his talents to the screen as Willie Cornish, one of Buddy’s childhood friends who sticks by his side during his ascent and ultimate demise. A talented and rising star, Ser’Darius Blain continues to hone his craft and follow his passion for creativity and achievement.
