ABOUT CURTISS COOK, JR.
What About Me?
The son of artists, Curtiss Cook Jr. has been acting for as long as he can remember; as an adult, he has grown into a confident and passionate performer. Proud of his New York upbringing, he's had the privilege of studying at The Harlem School of the Arts, Shakespeare Lab Jr., and HB Studios.
His acting career leaped into action when Curtiss starred in short and feature films such as Ryan Koo’s Amateur and Jay Dockendorf’s Naz & Maalik. In addition to his film accomplishments, he’s also been in commercials for Sprite and Dave & Buster’s.
A versatile actor, he gained his regional theater debut in Brownsville Song (b-side for tray) for The Long Wharf Theater and The Philadelphia Theater Company. Following this success, Curtiss made his Off-Broadway debut in the Classic Stage Company’s production of Mother Courage and Her Children, starring as the role of Eilif.
Through his many successes, Curtiss has gained a tremendous amount of experience and is eager for the next opportunity. Knowing that this is just his beginning, Curtiss Cook Jr. is ready to unlock his fullest potential as an artist.

“Naz & Maalik” feels authentic, and Mr. Johnson and Mr. Cook bring their characters completely alive.

“Anchored by lead performances from newcomers Kerwin Johnson and Curtiss Cook, Jr., writer-director Jay Dockendorf’s film is intimate, authentic, and feels decidedly relevant in today’s current context.”
