Next Gen 2010: Hollywood's Young Guns
Growing up with seven siblings will make a character out of anyone. Just ask Jackson, who moved to Los Angeles from Detroit and was signed by CAA while doing stand-up comedy at the Laugh Factory. Just two auditions later, he landed a part in 2005's Roll Bounce and has maintained a crowded slate since. He appeared in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, The Tooth Fairy, Fast & Furious and his biggest commercial hit to date, 2008's Tropic Thunder. Jackson says he is "a student on the set" and owes his success to those who surround him. "Everything I've learned is from working with great people," he says.
