Leonard Jackson was born in Hollywood, CA ready for the big screen. He started his career with a recurring role on "In the Heat of the Night" and has since starred in several films including: "Love and War II", "Young Hollywood", "Snow Job", "Bug Night", "The Pact", Just Another Day in the Neighborhood and P.O.V: The Camera's Eye. He has made many Television appearances on "In the House", Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, and several others. He is now performing live stand up comedy at many LA clubs around and is negotiating several new projects.
Leonard grew up in Los Angeles, the third of five children. As a child, he kept the family laughing at family functions and grew to love the spotlight. His grandmother, the saintly matriarch known as Mama Lee, encouraged Leonard to utilize his talent and pursue a career in acting as his father started Leonard in acting classes. He found his calling in these classes and has never forgot the sacrifices his parents made for his craft.
Leonard later moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1987 and finished high school and began college. While in Georgia he made his acting debut on the show "In the Heat of the Night". In 1996 he moved back to LA and has been a working actor since his return. He has a passion to please the crowd and loves performing whether it is acting, stand up comedy or hosting.
