Atlanta-based actor Jermaine Rivers (The Gifted) lands a recurring role as “Charles Perkins” in Netflix hit series Sweet Magnolia. On October 8, Jermaine shared the news of his casting on his Instagram account saying: “Feeling extremely blessed and excited to be joining the amazing cast of Sweet Magnolias Season 3.”
Details of Jermaine’s role in the series have not been disclosed to the public, but the actor promises audiences a worthwhile ride in the show’s third season which is set to be aired on Netflix in the Spring of 2023.
In addition to “Sweet Magnolia” Jermaine will be making his debut in the DCEU as he secured a role in the Blockbuster film Black Adam, which is slated for release on 21 October. Rivers is no stranger to the superhero genre as he’s most notable for his role as Shatter on Marvel’s “The Gifted”. Last year Rivers appeared in “Spider-Man No Way Home” and became part of the MCU when he doubled as (Jamie Fox’s) Electro. With roles in both the MCU and DCEU under his belt, 2022 is laying the foundation for Rivers to become a house-hold name.
Look for Rivers next year as he takes on lead and supporting roles in the following films: “A Party to Die For” a suspense thriller produced by MarVista Entertainment and “Freedom’s Path” a period piece set during the Civil War directed by Brett Smith.
Jermaine Rivers is rep’d by Play Management and Eris Talent.
