Dillon James in “All American”
In The CW’s drama “All American,” Jalyn Hall plays Dillon James who lives in a world where he’s protected by his brother, Spencer (Daniel Ezra), and nurtured by his mother, Grace (Karimah Westbrook). A fan of comic books, he’s full of insight, jokes, and backhanded compliments. He hasn’t really seen what it’s like out there, but with Spencer in Beverly Hills for most of the week, he’s about to grow up pretty quickly.
Hall can also be seen recurring on “Blackish,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Star” and “The Quad.” He has had guest appearances on “Family Reunion,” “Tales,” “Family Time” and “Atlanta.”
Hall has also made his way into the film world. He has appeared in “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” alongside Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, as well as this year’s remake of “Shaft,” and the upcoming film “John Henry” with Terry Crews and Ludacris. His next projects include a lead in “All Day and a Night,” Joe Robert Cole’s directorial debut, and a supporting role in “Space Jam 2.”
Raised in Atlanta, Ga., Hall currently resides in Los Angeles.
