Actor Eddie Jemison has been a rising presence in Hollywood since the mid-1990's. As a graduate of Louisiana State University and Swansea University in Wales, Jemison moved to Chicago in the early-1990's and began acting on stage. His credits include "The Wizards of Quiz" at the Nation Jewish Theatre, a theatrical telling of the late-1950's quiz show scandal involving irksome genius Herbert Stempel and rich kid Charles Van Doren, as depicted on film in "Quiz Show" (1994). Jemison also appeared in "Only Kidding" at the Wisdom Bridge Theatre, "A Christmas Carol" at the famed Goodman Theatre, and "T Bone N Weasel" at Victory Gardens. The Chicago theater scene took special notice of Jemison with his slapstick performance as Launce in "The Two Gentleman of Verona" at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. But by then, Jemison was a stage veteran ready to take the next step in his career: film.
