Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa (born August 1, 1979), better known as Jason Momoa, is an American actor, model, director, writer, and producer. He is known for his television roles as Ronon Dex (2005–2009) on the military science fiction television series Stargate Atlantis (2004-2009); as Khal Drogo in the HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones (2011-2012); and as Phillip Kopus on the SundanceTV drama series The Red Road (2014-2015).

Momoa portrayed the title character in the sword and sorcery film Conan the Barbarian (2011). He will appear in the 2016 superhero film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as Aquaman, with a solo film for the character following in 2018.

Road to Paloma, his first film as director, writer, and producer, and in which he also stars in the lead role, was released in July 11, 2014.

Biography

He met actress Lisa Bonet in 2005 after mutual friends introduced them. Bonet gave birth to their daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, on July 23, 2007, and they married November 15, 2007. Bonet and Momoa had a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, on December 15, 2008. The birth was first announced by Momoa's mother on the fan forums of his official site. She said that Nakoa means "warrior" (although the true meaning of the word nakoa is "brave") and Mana stands for “strength/spirit,” while Kaua ("rain") and Po ("dark") pertain to the circumstances surrounding his birthday (he was born on a rare bad-weather night in Los Angeles). He shares his other middle name, Namakaeha, with his father. In a recent interview with Katie Couric, Momoa confessed to having a boyhood crush on Bonet from her role as Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show.

On November 15, 2008, Momoa was slashed in the face with a broken beer glass at the Birds Cafe, a Hollywood, California, tavern. He received around 140 stitches during reconstructive surgery, and the scar is apparent in his later work.

Nate Johnson (Cedric the Entertainer) and his family have been invited to their big family reunion in Missouri. He sees it as an opportunity to reconnect with his estranged wife (Williams) and growing children, as well as a chance to show up his wealthier know-it-all brother, Mack (Harvey). Nate takes delivery on an expensive new SUV, persuades his recently separated wife Dorothy to tag along, and packs up his three kids — nubile teenager Nikki (Knowles), under-age wannabe rapper D.J. (Bow Wow), and precocious seven-year-old Destiny (Soleil) — for what he imagines will be a leisurely drive from Los Angeles to Missouri. Between his wary wife, arguing kids, angry police officers, a bizarre hitchhiker (Shannon Elizabeth), bad diner food, and an unfortunate run-in with a cement mixer, getting from point A to point B proves to be just short of a nightmare.
