JOHN DAVID WASHINGTON (Ron Stallworth) plays the lead role
of Dennis in director Reinaldo Marcus Green's Monsters and Men alongside
up-and-comers Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Chante Adams. The script was selected and
developed as part of the 2017 Sundance Directors Lab. He also stars in the
Anthony Mandler-helmed Monster, alongside Jeffrey Wright, ASAP Rocky, and
Jennifer Hudson. The film premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, where
it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Washington can also be seen in Fox
Searchlight's Old Man and the Gun, directed by David Lowery playing opposite
Casey Affleck, Elisabeth Moss, and Robert Redford. He got his big screen debut
in Lionsgate's Coco, directed by RZA, opposite Common and Jill Scott.
Prior to acting, Washington spent six years playing professional football before
turning his attention to the screen. Shortly after, he booked his first-ever
audition to play Ricky Jerret in the HBO series "Ballers" with Dwayne Johnson.
His performance as Ricky has generated rave reviews with the show going into its
fourth season in 2018.
