Meagan Good has developed into one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses for both film and television. Most recently, she starred in the sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues opposite Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Kristen Wiig. Additionally, she was seen starring as the lead character Detective Joanna Locasto in the new NBC drama “Deception.”
These roles followed a highly successful 2012 for Meagan when she held co-starring roles in the critically-acclaimed TV series, “Californication;” the box-office hit, Think Like a Man, and Charles S. Dutton’s comedy, The Obama Effect. The versatile actress has starred in multiple genres of films ranging from horror, ala The Unborn, to comedy, ala The Love Guru.
In one of her first major film roles, the eerie 1997 drama Eve’s Bayou, she delivered a powerful performance opposite Samuel L. Jackson for which she landed her first NAACP Image Award nomination. Meagan actually began starring in commercials at age 4, and has shot over 60 national TV ads to date.
Her first major television role was as the character Nina on the Nickelodeon hit series “Cousin Skeeter.” In 2001, she transitioned to prime-time television with a recurring role on the show, “Raising Dad.” Good’s other television credits include “Moesha,” “The Steve Harvey Show,” “The Division,” “The Parenthood,” “My Wife & Kids” and “All of Us.”
Additional feature film credits include: the box-office hits Jumping the Broom and Stomp the Yard; the cult film, Brick with Joseph Gordon Levitt; the features You Got Served and D.E.B.S; Waist Deep with Tyrese Gibson; Queen Latifah’s The Cookout; Biker Boyz; Deliver Us From Eva; and the horror film Saw V.
In addition to acting, Meagan’s ambitions have led her to produce her own independent films, including the 2006 feature, Miles From Home, which she starred in opposite actor/director Ty Hodges. She produced and starred in Video Girl, too, a “Gia”-esque film that depicts the sordid and misunderstood life of a music video superstar.
Meagan resides in Los Angeles with her husband, DeVon Franklin.
