He also will be encouraging men of all ages through his #Todaysleadingman campaign that promotes "Strong Fathers Strong Communities". The Snapshot: Jerome "Ro" Brooks, born Jerome Curtis Brooks Jr. grew up in West Baltimore. Ro's natural acting ability was cultivated by his Grandmother and Great Aunt, who would encourage Ro and his three sisters to perform dance and musical routines by throwing change at their feet. During his younger years, Ro began developing his musical prowess by rapping and dancing at talent shows and local events. While attending Walbrook High School, Ro's early success started when he got together with a group of friends and formed the rap and dance group Twice As Nice. The group performed at local venues and later won a talent show that earned them a spot on the bill at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater for a taping of Showtime at the Apollo. A few years later, Ro landed his first role in a feature film, directed by Robert Townsend. He has gone on to work with other acclaimed directors such as, Michael Bay, Quentin Tarantino, Simon West and Michael Mann. Ro has worked on numerous movies, commercials and television shows including: Homicide: Life on the Street, HBO's: critically acclaimed, The Corner, The Wire- Luck, 24, CSI: New York, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and many more.

Diddy, 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake, Lil' Wayne, TI, Jill Scott, Young Jeezy and Lil' Mo to name a few. Having escaped some of the trappings of the inner city, Ro felt compelled to reach out to his family members, friends and those in his community who were less fortunate. As a direct result, he founded The Hook Up- Music Magazine, whose mission was created to provide inspirational messages to inmates in correctional institutions across the country. Ro's up coming projects to look out for: Toyota Avalon commercial, starring opposite International Actor Idris Elba; airing NOW, FX/Sons Of Anarchy, starring opposite critically acclaimed actor Ron Perlman; scheduled to air September 24, 2013, Pastor Shirley, feature film, starring opposite Paula Jai Parker; on DVD August 13, 2013, In Mysterious Ways, feature film, starring opposite Wendy Raquel Robinson; slated for a Winter 2013 release, Squatters, starring opposite Thomas Dekker; scheduled to be released in theaters worldwide, Winter 2013 and FOX-Brooklyn Nine Nine, starring opposite Andy Samberg, scheduled to air October 15, 2013.
