      Birthday: Aug 8, 1968

      Birthplace: Petion Ville, Haiti

      Haitian-born actor Jimmy Jean-Louis moved to Paris as child, attending university before turning to modeling and the performing arts. After appearing in various international modeling and commercial campaigns, Jean-Louis held a recurring role on the soft-core porn film serial "Emmanuelle." He moved to Los Angeles in the late '90s, where his first United States film was "Blade Sisters." He followed with small parts in the action films "Derailed" and "The Bourne Identity" before landing a larger role in the Bruce Willis flick "Tears of the Sun." Turning to independent projects, Jean-Louis played Ferdinand in "Age of Kali" and Joe Gaetjens in the soccer film "The Game of Their Lives," about the 1950 United States soccer team that beat England in the Brazil World Cup. Making French-language and international films as well as mainstream Hollywood fare, Jean-Louis produced and starred in "Le President a-t-il Le Sida," directed by Arnold Antonin. His other international projects include the Ghanaian film "I Sing of a Well" in 2009 and "Life Outside of Pearl," which he co-produced. In the United States Jean-Louis co-produced and starred in "Soul Sisters," about race and the American Dream. His most recognizable role by far for American audiences is the Haitian character on the popular series "Heroes," about a group of people who awaken with special powers. Very conscious of his journey as an immigrant, Jean-Louis has been active in Haitian philanthropy, particularly in the wake of Haiti's 2010 earthquake.
