Artist Bio: Justin Hires
Justin Hires is a multi-talented actor, comedian and writer.
Hires can be seen playing ‘Bozer’ in the new CBS reboot of “MACGYVER.” His past credits include starring as Detective Carter in the CBS action/comedy “RUSH HOUR.” He was also seen in the box-office success “21 JUMP STREET” and recurring on Comedy Central’s popular sketch comedy show “KEY & PEELE.” Justin can often be seen touring the nation performing stand-up comedy.
Born in St. Petersburg, FL, and raised by two very supportive parents, Hires always had an extremely notable gift to make others laugh. While attending college at Clark Atlanta University, Justin was cast in two feature films- “STOMP THE YARD” and “THE GOSPEL.” MTV then discovered Hires as an on-air personality at his campus radio station and hired him immediately to be a video-jockey for their college network, mtvU.
After receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Media- Radio, TV, and Film, Justin moved to Hollywood. He started performing stand-up comedy and landing television and film roles, along with accumulating over 18 million views online with his personal sketches.
Hires’ goal is to use his platform as an emerging actor/comedian to inspire up and coming artists and open doors for talented fresh-faced minorities in this increasingly progressive entertainment industry.
