*Meagan Good stars in NBC’s midseason drama “Deception” as Joanna Padget Locasto, a San Francisco narcotics detective with childhood ties to a notoriously secretive and powerful New York family, the Bowers.
When her childhood best friend, Vivian Bowers, is found dead under mysterious circumstances, Joanna is enlisted by the FBI to help to find the killer, agreeing to go undercover into the opulent lifestyle she thought she’d left behind.
Meagan has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young actresses, recently completing a season-long arc on Showtime’s acclaimed series “Californication” as well as a role in “Think Like a Man,” the feature film based on the best-selling book by Steve Harvey. In 2011, she starred on the big screen alongside Angela Bassett and Paula Patton in “Jumping the Broom.”
The versatile actress has mastered a variety of film genres, ranging from horror with “The Unborn” opposite Odette Annable and Gary Oldman to comedy with “The Love Guru,” co-starring Mike Myers, Jessica Alba and Justin Timberlake. She rose to fame as a result of her box-office hit “Stomp the Yard,” but was recognized earlier for her acclaimed performance opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the eerie family drama “Eve’s Bayou,” for which she received an NAACP Image Award nomination.
Additional feature film credits include the critically-acclaimed cult film “Brick,” opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt, “You Got Served,” “D.E.B.S,” “Waist Deep” with Tyrese Gibson, Queen Latifah’s “The Cookout,” “Biker Boyz,” “Deliver Us from Eva,” “Friday” with Ice Cube, “Roll Bounce” and the horror film “Saw V.”
Besides acting, Meagan has produced independent films such as “Miles from Home,” which she starred in opposite actor/director Ty Hodges. The picture screened at the Pan African Film & Arts Festival, the Washington D.C. Independent Film Festival and the Atlanta Film Festival, where it swept all of the awards – Best Feature, Best Actor and Actress (Meagan Good) and Best Director. More recently, she produced and starred in “Video Girl,” the “Gia”-esque film that depicts the sordid and misunderstood life of a music video superstar.
Born in Panorama City, California, Megan began appearing in commercials at the age of 4 and to date has completed over 60 national television commercials. She made her primetime television debut on the WB nighttime series “Raising Dad,” and her first major television role was as a regular on the hit show “Cousin Skeeter.” And she has guest-starred on “Moesha,” “The Steve Harvey Show,” “The Division,” “The Parent ‘Hood,” “My Wife & Kids” and “All of Us,” too.
Meagan was recently married to DeVon Franklin, an executive for Columbia Pictures who is also a preacher and motivational speaker. Here, she talks about her new show, “Deception,” which airs Monday nights on NBC at 10 PM ET/PT. (Check local listings)
