Over only the last five years, JASON MITCHELL (Eddie) has steadily been building a reputation as an actor on the rise.

Mitchell has achieved critical acclaim for his role portraying the iconic Eazy E in Universal's 2015 N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, directed by F Gary Gray. Starring opposite Paul Giamatti, Mitchell beat out competition from around the country for this coveted role. Mitchell won the African American Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor as well as sharing nominations with his fellow cast mates for Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards as well as the Critics Choice Awards. He also received Variety and San Diego International Film Festival's Rising Star Award in September 2016 for his work in film.

Most recently, Mitchell appeared in Dee Rees's Mudbound, the sensational World War II period drama which received overwhelming praise at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was quickly picked up by Netflix for distribution. In summer 2017, Mitchell was in the Kathryn Bigelow directed Detroit released by Annapurna Pictures. Mitchell also recently starred in the box office hit Kong: Skull Island alongside his Compton co-star Corey Hawkins, directed by Jordan Voigt Roberts.

Mitchell can now be seen in his first-ever TV role as a series regular in Showtime's "The Chi," directed by Emmy winner Lena Waithe, which premiered in January and has been renewed for a second season at Showtime. The timely and distinctive coming-of-age story follows a half-dozen interrelated characters in the South Side of Chicago.

Mitchell will next be seen in Mustang, which tells the story of Roman Coleman, a violent convict who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation program involving the training of wild mustangs. The film is directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre and stars Matthias Schoenaerts and Bruce Dern.
