Jordan Calloway is an American actor.
He is best known for his role on the Nickelodeon TV show Unfabulous, though he has enjoyed recurring roles in several other TV shows since then.
The Origin Story
Calloway was born in Los Angeles, California, on 18th October, 1990.
He is the youngest of several siblings, and was nicknamed “Peanut” by his brothers and sisters as a child.
His father, Joseph Calloway, was an accomplished cinematographer and well-connected within Hollywood.
As a child, Calloway had aspirations of becoming a US Navy Seal, while it was his older brother who was interested in becoming an actor.
Calloway later recounted that, ironically, his brother entered the military, while it was he who ended up becoming an actor.
”When I was younger, I always wanted to be a Navy Seal, and my brother was the one who wanted to pursue acting,” he said.
Jordan was a student at Maranatha High School – a private Christian college preparatory school – in Pasadena, California.
After graduating, he attended Azusa Pacific University (a Christian evangelical college) in California, where he graduated with a degree in TV and Film Production.
Calloway enjoyed a number of small roles from 2000 onward.
He had minor parts in The Parkers, The District and George Lopez, where he played Jerel Jr., ‘Son’ and ‘Kid #2’, respectively. None were recurring roles.
Calloway’s big break came with his turn as Zach Carter-Schwartz on the Nickelodeon hit Unfabulous. He starred in a total of 41 episodes from 2004-2007, cementing himself as a serious actor and putting him in demand for other projects.
Calloway parlayed this into a role in the smash medical drama ER. He starred in 7 episodes from 2005-2006, playing the role of K.J. Thibeaux.
Following his stint on Unfabulous, Calloway went back to minor guest roles on a number of TV shows.
He appeared, variously, on The Glades, DisCONNECTED, Life of a King, Gang Related, Reckless, Drumline: a New Beat, Recovery Road, Grandma’s House, House of Lies and Untitled Paranormal Project.
In 2012, Jordan worked for several months as an intern at Smuggler Productions, a theater and film production company.
In 2016, Calloway’s acting career again picked up.
He had a four-episode guest run on Beyond, where he played the character of Kevin McArdle.
He also enjoyed lengthy runs on Freakish (where he played Zane) and, from 2017-2018, Riverdale (Chuck Clayton).

From 2018-2021 Calloway landed his longest-running role yet – that of the villainous Khalil Payne, AKA ‘Painkiller,’ who served as a major series antagonist throughout the run of the show Black Lightning.
During his time on the show, Calloway drew major critical acclaim for his take on the tortured villain, with some even going so far as to call him an anti-hero.
In 2019, he starred as Matt Monroe in Countdown, a supernatural horror film that follows several people who discover a mobile app (Countdown) that tells its users when they are going to die.
”To get to work with Elizabeth Lail, she starred in Netflix’s You, that was a huge opportunity,” Jordan told The Shadow League. He added: ”Also, PJ Byrne, when I found out he booked it, I mean, I was beside myself because we both worked together on BlackLightning.”
Calloway’s most recent role has been in the prison/firefighter drama Fire Country, where he plays the elite firefighter Jake Crawford.
Jordan Calloway is not married.
Also, there is not much known about Calloway’s girlfriend, except that he replied to a tweet in 2012:
”I thought I said happy Valentine’s day to you, and 2nd I’m only my moms valentine until I have someone to call my valentine daily.”
