In this one-on-one, Spectrum News exclusive with Jacobi Howard from the No. 1 movie on Netflix, “The Harder They Fall,” the actor chats about his start in acting and counts his blessings.
Howard, originally from Charlotte, plays Angel, one of the in-your-face cowboys in the Netflix hit movie.
The 37-year-old tells Spectrum News this Thanksgiving he felt blessed after being given the unexpected opportunity to act alongside Hollywood A-listers like Idris Elba, Regina King and Jonathan Majors (also with North Carolina roots) — just to name a few.
“So, my acting journey started when I was 16, 17 years old … and that was Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, which later became Imagine On,” Howard said.
While Howard is originally from Charlotte, he currently calls Florida home.
