Hostiles (2017, IMDb: 7.2)
Director and writer Scott Cooper and Christian Bale are a duo who have worked on three films together. Cooper is known for creating low to mid range budget independent films that end up getting a lot of attention in film festivals, especially with a big name like Christian Bale attached to his projects. Nonetheless, Hostiles has a memorable scene that in a way gives Jonathan Majors credit for adding more depth to Cooper’s western piece. In addition, this is Majors’ first movie to his name where his professional identity as an actor really started to be seen on the map. The “Never let you down” scene shows Henry Corp. Henry Woodson (Jonathan Majors) laying down on a hospital bed and offering a sincere apology and goodbye to his captain Capt. Joseph J. Blocker. It doesn’t happen that often where Christian Bale’s characters begin to cry, but in this case, Jonathan Major’s emotional vulnerability is deeply felt even through the tough exterior of Capt. Joseph Blocker.
The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019, IMDb: 7.3)
Jonathan Major’s first critically acclaimed role follows his portrayal of Montgomery Allen, Jimmie Fail’s good friend who helps him rebuild Jimmie’s grandfather’s house. In a city that is becoming increasingly engulfed with gentrification, the rejuvenation of the house tests Montgomery’s and Jimmie’s friendship as the two clash with each other’s view on the present and the past. Jonathan Majors brings a side to Montgomery that explores how us humans adapt to our ever changing environment in a place we call home, and he also reflex the significance of having a sense of belonging.
Filmmaker Spike Lee and actor Chadwick Boseman are clearly some legendary names in the movie industry, and Jonathan Majors became next in line as he plays David, Paul’s (Delroy Lingo) estranged son and schoolteacher who hopes to reconcile with his father. The film follows four African American vets of the Vietnam War, who return to Vietnam in search of their squadron leader’s remains along with a fortune of gold. This role for Jonathan Majors is one of the –if not the most– substantial stepping stones in Major’s career, and now, it is confirmed that Spike Lee and Jonathan Majors are collaborating on a new project called Da Understudy.
Jonathan Major’s protagonist named Atticus Freeman wasn’t just his first HBO Max leading man role. It led the talented actor to his first Primetime Emmy Award Nomination. Based on the novel written by Matt Ruff, the series follows Atticus Freeman, a vet of the Korean War who–with the support of Letitia and his Uncle George, embarks on journey against the dangers of America’s racism during the 1950’s Jim Crow era depicted through monsters and other supernatural forces.
He Who Remains, also known as Nathaniel Richards or “Kang” is the Supervillain MCU’s Loki. The name says it all, in which He Who Remains, literally remains alive as he is able to coexist in multiple universes. In Loki’s case, the adversary is a scientist who has turned into a variant of Kang the Conquerer and is behind the Time Variance Authority. With Loki being one of Disney’s favorite “bad guys”, Jonathan Majors brings in an even more menacing interpretation of antagonistic abilities. This series is a must-watch for pure action, amazing visuals, and one of Jonathan Major’s first appearances in the MCU.
This time around in his second Western Film, Jonathan Majors gets to have a little more gun-slinging action as Nat Love. Outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) finds out that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) has been released from prison. He seeks revenge by rounding up his gang to track down Rufus and will succeed at all costs. This vengeance story is not just your typical cowboy film, for Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba and Regina King together bring a stunning and entertaining performance, making this film worth the watch!
Based on the bestselling book of the same name, and also based on a true story, Devotion is an epic war film that follows two US Navy pilots during the Korean War.

Majors does an impeccable job playing a war hero who was not only one of the best pilots in his squadron, but was also the first African American aviator in Navy History.
