NEW YORK (AP) - Jonathan Majors overwhelmingly burst on the scene in 2019, making him an easy choice for this year's class of The Associated Press’ Breakthrough Entertainers. Majors’ tender and soulful performance as Montgomery Allen in “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” has not only drawn widespread acclaim but brought the eager attention of Spike Lee, Jordan Peele, J.J. Abrams and Jay-Z - all of whom have cast him in upcoming projects. All of this comes just two years after Majors' professional debut, three years since his last semester at the Yale School of Drama.
