  Summary  

Jermaine "Huggy" Hopkins is an American actor who has appeared in television shows such as The Wayans Bros. and Law & Order.

  Biography  

At 14 years of age, Huggy fell into the acting business when his mother brought him to a cattle-call audition in New York for the Warner Brothers feature "Lean on Me", a starring role as a misguided drug-abusing junior high school student. The line to get in to the audition for the role of Thomas Sams was so long, it wrapped around three city blocks. Huggy and his mother became so discouraged waiting in the enormous line, they were just about to leave as the film's writer, Michael Schiffer, walked by and spotted the two leaving. Huggy's unique look caught the screenwriter's eye and he promptly brought Huggy to the front of the line to meet the producers and the director. Needless to say, he booked the job and the rest is history. Huggy had a string of back-to-back successes in an acting career just beginning. His very next project "Juice, " helmed by Ernest R. Dickerson, had him starring as Steel along side Samuel L. Jackson, Queen Latifah, 'Dr. Dre', Omar Epps and the late Tupac Shakur. Huggy subsequently starred in the HBO worldwide release "Strapped" that would be Forest Whitaker's directorial debut. Huggy went on to carry his first film, Phat Beach as the star from beginning to end. The next two years were even more rewarding for Huggy, as he worked his way through episodes of "Murder One, " "Moesha" and six episodes as Dupree on "The Wayans Brothers" series before finishing production on his next film "How to Be a Player" starring opposite Bill Bellamy and comedian Pierre Edwards
