JERMAINE FOWLER BIOGRAPHY: COMEDY CAREER

In 2013 Fowler began writing, producing, and acting in MTV2’s Guy Code, a reality tv show where comics, athletes, and pop culture icons detail the unspoken rules between straight men.

JERMAINE FOWLER BIOGRAPHY: THE DROP
Fowler’s most recent role is in Hulu’s The Drop (2022). The movie is about a young couple, Mani (Fowler) and Lex (Anna Konkle) going to a friend’s destination wedding while dreaming about their future family together, until Lex drops her friend’s baby. In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Fowler says that the drop caused the most conflict for his character because “Mani was raised very structurally and he wants to instill that in his future family. I don’t think he realized how unfair that was for his partner. He loves Lex very much and he wants to have a family with her very soon, so when this baby is dropped, his world kind of shatters. He starts to question if he can raise a family with a woman who can drop a baby. The answer is yes. He just hasn’t been faced with anything that traumatic before.”

Fowler revealed that most difficult scene he ever shot was the breakup scene next to the pool. He explained, “We would start the first take and I’d begin not crying and then by the end of it, I would be crying. When Sarah, our director, would say, ‘Don’t wipe those tears, we’re going to do it again,’ I had to stay in that very dark place and it from a hundred and get to a thousand. The takes would get more and more emotional and more and more heartbreaking.”
Fowler commented on what he thinks the film says about relationships. “They’re not perfect. Relationships aren’t perfect,” Fowler responded. Your partner is not perfect and you don’t have to do things the way society or even your parents have done them. You can have an unconventional relationship, an unconventional love. It’s fine. I think those are things we’re faced with today. Those questions like, ‘What is love?’ I feel like this movie sort of speaks to that in a lot of ways and I feel like every character is going through their individual sort of prices. They’re all spiraling in a lot of ways. Their love is being tested during this s— vacation.”
