Mamoudou Athie plays Ray Malcolm, a paramedic who becomes Jean’s main love interest. Despite her intense family, Ray continues to walk in the path of fire for her. Jean and her family are the stars of this movie, but Athie offers enough charm and charisma to make you root for Jean and him. Unfortunately, Jean of the Joneses is no longer available to stream, purchase or rent. It was available on Tubi, but isn’t at the moment. If it returns to streaming platforms, it’s definitely a comedy worth a watch.
If you want to check out more Mamoudou Athie projects, he appeared on a few episodes of Netflix’s The Get Down, TBS’ The Detour, and the movie The Front Runnerstarring Hugh Jackman. Catch Mamoudou Athie in Jurassic Park: Dominion on June 10, 2022.
