Jermaine "Huggy" Hopkins (born August 23, 1973) is an American actor who has appeared in films such as Lean on Me and Juice.


At 14 years of age, Hopkins fell into the acting business when his mother brought him to a cattle-call audition in New York for the Warner Bros. feature Lean on Me, a starring role as Thomas Samms, a misguided drug-abusing high school student. His next project Juice, directed by Ernest R. Dickerson, had him starring as Steel alongside Khalil Kain, Omar Epps and Tupac Shakur. Hopkins subsequently starred in the HBO worldwide release "Strapped", that would be Forest Whitaker's directorial debut. Over the next two years, Hopkins appeared in episodes of "Murder One" and "Moesha", and six episodes as Dupree on "The Wayans Brothers" series, before finishing production on his next film "How to Be a Player", starring opposite Bill Bellamy and comedian Pierre Edwards.

During a glorious Southern California summer, high school student Benny King (Hopkins) is doing time flipping burgers. Benny's father wants him to learn the work ethic, rather than have him sit around the house all summer, dreaming and writing. It's not surprising, then, that when his old friend Durrell (Brian Hooks) comes by with a more attractive alternative, Benny jumps at it. When his family goes on vacation, Benny borrows his father's Mercedes and heads on down to the beach with Durrell. They have told themselves that they are there to sell beach-goers cheap sunglasses, but they are really there to show off their 'phat' box and attract the finest girls with portable beats on the beach.
