Charismatic television and film actor Terrence 'J' Jenkins is the new co-anchor of E! News alongside Giuliana Rancic on the acclaimed E! network. The wildly successful pop culture news show is dedicated to keeping its millions of viewers up to date on everything related to the entertainment industry.

Jenkins recently joined the cast of Fox Searchlight's upcoming feature Baggage Claim alongside Paula Patton, Djimon Hounsou, Derek Luke, Taye Diggs, Jill Scott, and Christina Milian. In early 2012, he starred in the box office smash hit Think Like a Man alongside Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson, and Kevin Hart. The Sony Pictures release was a worldwide success and was adapted from Steve Harvey's popular book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

As a civic-minded member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity, Jenkins has used his community-oriented upbringing to work as a spokesperson for Ronald McDonald's House Charities Future Achievers Scholarship Campaign, a mentor with Steve Harvey's Disney Dreamers Academy, and an avid supporter of the Newark, New Jersey, Boys and Girls Club. He also serves as vice president of Crown Life branding in addition to being an ambassador for Crown Royal Whiskey.
