Early life
Majors was born in Santa Barbara County, California, and spent his early years living with his mother, who is a pastor,[3] his older sister, and younger brother on the Vandenberg military base, as his father was in the US Air Force.[4] In 2020, Majors said "Our father, who loved us dearly, just kind of disappeared one day ... and he resurfaced 17 years later."[4] Majors has since reconnected with his father.[5] The family moved around various cities in Texas, including DallasGeorgetown, and Cedar Hill.[6] He attended Cedar Hill High School and graduated from Duncanville High School in 2008.
He had a difficult childhood, growing up with recently-released criminals such as drug dealers or murderers for neighbors who wore ankle monitors.[7] As a teenager, Majors was arrested for shoplifting, suspended from high school for fighting, and at one point he lived in his car while working two jobs[4] after being kicked out of his house.[7] He eventually found a "safe space" in the world of theatre,[4] where he found some solace and joined after watching Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, in which he felt Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker to resemble the criminals with moralistic dualities he grew up with for his complexity of good and evil, leading him to become an actor so he could inspire others like Ledger did to him.[7]
Majors studied for his bachelor's degree at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts,[8] and later attended the Yale School of Drama; he graduated with an MFA degree in 2016.[9]
Career
Majors secured his first onscreen role in the ABC miniseries When We Rise while still a student at Yale.[10][11] In the series, Majors portrayed real-life gay activist Ken Jones; as part of his research for the role, he met with Jones before playing him.[12] That same year, Majors appeared in his first feature film role as Corporal Henry Woodson in the revisionist Western film Hostiles, written and directed by Scott Cooper. The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on September 2, 2017.[13] It was also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, 2017.[14] More roles followed, in the 2018 films White Boy Rick and Out of Blue.[15][16] Both of these films screened at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival,[17] with the latter competing for the Platform Prize.[18]
In 2019, Majors rose to prominence after starring in Joe Talbot's critically acclaimed independent feature film The Last Black Man in San Francisco, for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination.[19] The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, 2019.[20] It was released by A24 in the United States on June 7, 2019.[21] Former President of the United States Barack Obama rated it as one of the best films of 2019.[22] Majors's performance was praised by critics: Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called his performance "a mournful heartbreaker",[23] while Rolling Stone described his turn as "both deeply sensitive and charmingly left-of-center".[24] Majors also appeared in three other 2019 film releases: Captive State,[25] Gully,[26] and Jungleland.[27]
In 2020, Majors starred alongside Chadwick Boseman and Delroy Lindo in Spike Lee's war drama film Da 5 Bloods, which was released on Netflix.[28] That year, he also garnered wider notice for portraying Atticus Freeman in the HBO television series Lovecraft Country.[29] His performance in Lovecraft Country was favorably reviewed by critics; Vogue dubbed him "the emotional core of the show".[30] Majors debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Disney+ series Loki as "He Who Remains".[31] In 2021, Majors starred as the lead actor in Jeymes Samuel's directorial debut film The Harder They Fall, acting alongside Idris ElbaZazie BeetzRegina King and Delroy Lindo.[32] In 2023, he starred in Magazine Dreams[33] and co-starred alongside Michael B. Jordan in Creed III. He portrayed Kang the Conqueror and several other variants of the character in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.[34][35][36]
In 2023, Majors confirmed he will be playing Dennis Rodman in Phil Lord & Chris Miller's 48 Hours in Las Vegas.[37]
Personal life
Majors has one child, a daughter.[38]
2023 arrest
On March 25, 2023, Majors was accused and arrested on assault, strangulation and harassment charges, stemming from a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman, who "sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition", according to New York City police.[39] He was released from custody that day, and his spokesperson denied the allegations, saying Majors "has done nothing wrong … We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up."[39] According to Majors's attorney, the accuser has recanted her allegations.[40] On March 26, Majors was arraigned in a New York City court on charges including assault, attempted assault, harassment, and aggravated harassment in connection to the arrest.[41]
Following his arrest, the United States Army announced they were suspending recruiting commercials that starred Majors.[42][43] In a statement released to the public, the Army said, "While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete."[44]
