Jacob started his acting career when he was only nine months old. He appeared in the Screen One series in 1994. He also participated in Some Girls in 2013 and Hunter Killer in 2018, but he made his breakthrough in 2020 by playing the lead villain, Armando Aretas, in Bad Boys for Life. Jacob is a pet lover.
There isn’t any information about his family and parents; we only know that he is British and belongs to mixed ethnicity. He is currently single and very focused on his career.
He prefers to remain anonymous when it comes to his private life. His sexual orientation was questioned in 2016 because he was barely seen with women.
These suspicions were further fueled by fans who claimed to have witnessed Jacob spending a lot of time with a male buddy in London. All of this information is speculative.
On the other hand, it is well known that he is seeing musician Liv Lovelle; it is said that they started dating in 2019 when they began posting pictures of each other on social media. London-born Liv is a well-known singer and composer who first gained popularity with the single “Won’t Say Too Much.”
When Jacob appeared in an episode of “Bambino Mio” at nine months, his parents helped establish his career. He continues to star in several TV shows, motion pictures, and theatrical productions.
He had an appearance in “The King and I” by Rodgers and Hammerstein at the London Palladium and appeared in two episodes of the British TV series “White Teeth” in 2002.
The young twin brothers Magid and Millat were performed by nine-year-old Jacob in the plays “The Return of Magid Iqbal” and “The Temptation of Samad Iqbal.”
He played Kris Slattery in the drama series “Holby City” in 2006, and the following year he landed the recurring role of Bip in the Disney-produced British version of the original Italian series “Quelli dell’intervallo.” He then had supporting roles in the television movies “Undefeated” and “CBeebies Christmas Panto 2010: Aladdin.”
In the British sitcom “Some Girls,” he played Tyler Baine, the head lad at Greenshoots Academy, in 2012. The three-season program was well-received by critics, who described it as “energetic, irreverent, and authentic.”
His subsequent recurring part was as Lewis in the BAFTA-winning internet drama “Dixi,” which he played for 22 episodes. He made appearances in the short film “Cowboys and Angels” and an episode of the TV show “Dani’s Castle” in 2016 before lending his voice to the role of Leo in “Bob the Builder: Mega Machines” in 2017.
He appeared in various films in 2019, including “We Die Young” and “What YouWill” before playing alongside Scott Eastwood and Orlando Bloom in the American war film “The Outpost.” The original plan to release the film in over 500 theaters was abandoned owing to the COVID outbreak, so the movie barely made $2 million.
Alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, he got his most well-known role as the villain Armando Aretas in the blockbuster film “Bad Boys for Life,” the third entry in the “Bad Boys” series.
On January 17, 2020, the movie was released. It cost $90 million to produce, had positive reviews, and was nominated for several awards, including the Bet Award for Best Movie and two People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Movie and Favorite Actor (Will Smith).
Smith, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Doug Belgrad produced the film. In a CS interview, Jacob revealed that Josh Brolin’s Thanos and Heath Ledger’s Joker served as his inspirations for the role of Aretas.
He said of these characters: “In both cases, they were bad guys, but you understood why they made their choices. That made them so interesting to watch, and that’s why people reacted to them so well.”
Given the film’s enormous popularity, the fourth installment is already under development. I’d love to be part of another Bad Boys movie, he stated in an interview.
I don’t know any genuine news, thus, I don’t have any to report, but Armando can go anywhere from here, in my opinion. He’s such a fascinating, dynamic, and unpredictable figure.
