Justin McManus’ Career
Working in front of the camera wasn’t McManus’ plan A. Nonetheless, when he moved to New York after college, the opportunity came knocking.
“I decided to move to NYC to pursue a new career and when I got to NYC I was scouted to be a model. I was hesitant at first but I was like hey why not make some extra money. So basically I was scouted while I was working at Abercrombie and Fitch on 5th avenue,” recalled McManus who signed with Ford Models.
McManus is something of a triple threat. Besides modeling, he’s also an actor and a professional photographer.
He picked up photography four years into his modeling career. He wanted to learn a new craft, and photography fit his creative talent. After modeling in front of the camera, McManus moved behind it to shoot editorial and fashion pictures for magazines. Men’s fashion designer Joseph Abboud is one of his biggest clients.
He soon transitioned into acting the same way he took up photography. He took acting classes and has been unstoppable since then. He is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio in New York City and has appeared in TV shows since 2016.
His breakout role came as Omari in Fox’s Star, where he had the opportunity to work with Queen Latifah. Currently, he plays Jabari Reynolds in Power Book II: Ghost.
