Terrence J on Leaving ET to Executive Produce ‘The Perfect Match’ –
Terrence Jenkins, aka Terrence J, was born in Queens, New York on April 21, 1982, but raised in Raleigh and Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism at North Carolina A&T University where he also worked as a DJ and was served as Student Body President.
In an LA Sentinal interview, Terrence revealed how he got his start in radio and talks about his latest outing opposite Cassie Ventura in The Perfect Match, a romantic comedy revolving around a shameless player who takes a dare to remain faithful to one woman for an entire month.
When asked about his very first job and how he landed in entertainment. Terrence states, “Selling shoes at a Footlocker in the mall. And that’s how I met the guy from the radio station in Rocky Mount, North Carolina who gave me my first internship. I sold him a pair of sneakers. I fell in love with radio once I started working there, and I never stopped.”
Sway In the Morning – It seems like Terrence J appears on our television screens on a regular basis at this point, whether hosting or taking on hilarious movie roles in “Think Like A Man“.
That’s probably what shocked everyone when he left Entertainment Tonight to take on a dream of his, producing his own films. After a brief “pep talk” of sorts with Will Smith it just felt like the right choice to make. That risk paid off great with his first movie set to hit theaters March 11th, he put in double the work this time around playing Executive Producer and the leading actor. Kudos.
