Jason Abrams is an actor and producer who has appeared in both film and television. From appearances in Mad Men to The War of Worlds (2007), Abrams has been seen in a wide variety of popular productions. However, film and TV aren’t the only avenues that Abrams uses to express his creativity and love of acting. Over the past few years, Abrams has turned to platforms like Instagram and Youtube, where he posts comedic reels for thousands of followers to see. “Using social media has been great because it allows me to just have fun,” he explains. “I can share my experiences, make people laugh, give a behind-the-scenes look into the life of a working actor in NYC.” Abrams is a multifaceted, one-of-a-kind entertainer with a long career ahead of him.
Born in upstate New York, Abrams has loved entertaining people since childhood. He describes his family as a “musical family,” so it must have made them proud when he started his own DJ business as a teenager. It was a modestly successful venture that ran for 14 years, and it remains a point of pride for Abrams. “I loved doing DJ work,” he recalls. “The energy, the creativity, the rush, the experience of being there and feeling the music and pumping up a crowd – it’s such an incredible atmosphere to work in.”
From small roles on shows like Mad Men, The Sopranos, and Law & Order SVU to a major role in the 2019 film Night Sweats, Jason Abrams is laying the foundations for a long and successful career in the entertainment industry.
Abrams has made some incredible memories over the course of his acting career. Working in revered productions, getting to meet huge stars, and seeing his face on the big and small screen have been some of the most profound and memorable experiences of his life. “It’s been so fulfilling despite all of the challenges, the long hours, the hard work, the modest recognition – in the end, it’s all worth it just to see your face on the poster or your name scrolling by in the credits.” Creating and maintaining a steady career in the film industry is hard work, but there’s always room for dedicated performers and entertainers.
Produced in association with Abrams’ Brooklyn-based production company, Time Will Tell Productions, Night Sweats (2019) tells the heart-pounding story of a skateboarder investigating the mysterious death of his roommate. As he gets closer to the truth, he is drawn into the sinister inner workings of a self-help company and the mysterious pharmaceutical lab behind it. The film, which was based on a true story, is both nightmarish and frighteningly real. Billed as a “pharmaceutical thriller,” the film has received praise from viewers for its pacing, suspense, and performances.
Social media has enabled actors and other creatives around the world to expand their reach and grow their platforms. Abrams has used social media websites such as Youtube and Instagram to share his creativity and sense of humor with his followers through videos and shorts. He enjoys the creative control that social media gives him, but building a strong following is only a single check on his expansive list of his aspirations. “At the end of the day, as long as I’m entertaining people, I’m doing what I love,” he says. Abrams has his sights set on the big screen, and he is excited to dive headfirst into the next opportunity that finds him.
