MY SOUL TO TAKE
DENZEL WHITAKER (Jerome) first grabbed the
spotlight more than seven years
ago when he started booking
commercials. He went on to
land a small role in Training
Day, a movie that brought him
face-to-face with his namesake,
Denzel Washington. For
his role in the film, Washington
went on to win the Academy
AwardÂ® for Best Actor.
In 2007, Whitaker went on to work with Washington
in The Great Debaters. The talented teenager has since
appeared on UPN's One on One and played recurring
roles in Nickelodeon's All That and FOX's The War at
Home. His other television credits include numerous
appearances on such hit shows as ER, The Suite Life of
Zack and Cody and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He
was also cast as a series regular on the ABC pilot House
Rules. This past year, Whitaker was cast in Gavin
O'Connor's Warrior, which is set for release in 2011.
Whitaker currently appears as a recurring character
on ABC's Brothers & Sisters and is developing
several projects of his own.
A native of California, Whitaker enjoys writing
screenplays, playing basketball and golf, hip-hop
dancing, digital animation and independent filmmaking.
Taking notes from the teachings of his
mentors Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker
(unrelated namesake), he aspires to be an actor and a
director who will simply entertain.
