Actor DaJuan Johnson soars as Detective Rondell Pierce in Season 5 of Amazon’s Emmy-nominated original police drama series, BOSCH, currently available for streaming. Johnson also secures For Your Emmy® Consideration as ‘Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series’ for his heart-wrenching performance as Garrett Boland on ABC’s mega-hit, GREY’S ANATOMY.

Releasing in April, Season 5 of BOSCH is based on best-selling author Michael Connelly’s 20th book in the long-running series, Two Kinds of Truth. The storyline involves a murder case from Bosch’s past being brought into question and raising issues of police misconduct — which could endanger his entire career. All the while, resident ‘boy scout’ Detective Rondell Pierce (Johnson) gets a new partner, but learns to rely on his own merits this season. Once a newbie himself, Pierce now proves he can hold his own with the big boys.

Earlier this season, Johnson brought audiences to tears emerging in a recurring role as Garrett Boland on ABC’s long-running medical drama series, GREY’S ANATOMY. In the episode “Girlfriend in a Coma,” a distraught Garrett (Johnson) agonizes over the fate of his comatose girlfriend with the fate of their future hinged on a ventilator. As Garrett endures the mental and emotional strain of watching his love take two steps toward progress and then two steps back, that a heartbreaking decision must be made. But before they remove her ventilator and end their time together, Garrett arranges to give the love of his life her wedding under the stars.

Johnson is appreciative of the Awards consideration, but more excited that this storyline has resonated so well with audiences. Johnson adds, “I’ve wanted to be on Grey’s for a very long time for many different roles, but playing Garrett was definitely the role I was supposed to play. I’m beyond humbled that this storyline and character touched so many fans!”

Johnson has built a solid reputation and resume in the industry. Earlier this month, he received accolades for his leading role in the YouTube series, The New 30, which earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for ‘Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama’. Fans will also recognize Johnson from his recurring roles on Fox’s action-thriller 24 alongside Kiefer Sutherland and ABC’s hit medical-drama Private Practice opposite Tessa Thompson. Other notable television credits include guest starring appearances on Downward Dog, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Agent Carter, Bones, Close to Home, Criminal Minds, Lincoln Heights, CSI: NY, CSI and Scrubs among others. Johnson also gained attention as a stand-out talent in the MTV bio-pic Pedro, co-starring as Sean Sasser, the supportive boyfriend to AIDS activist Pedro Zamora, who was the first HIV-positive homosexual to appear in a reality show on MTV.

Growing up in Miami, Florida, Johnson realized his passion for acting at an early age while participating in local theatre productions. After receiving dual B.A. degrees in Theatre and English Literature from the University of Florida, he continued his education at Colorado State University obtaining his masters in Higher Education. With this foundation, he moved to Los Angeles where he continues to pursue one of his greatest passions – acting.
