 Nationwide  Globally recognized television, film and stage actor John Marshall Jones (Bosch, Shooter, In The Cut, and the upcoming 9-1-1) and multi award-winning writer Levy Lee Simon (AUDELCO, NAACP Theater and Kennedy Center Awards) are starring in The Last Revolutionary which opens the African Diaspora International Film Festival to be held at Columbia University on November 24th 2017 at 7pm.

Jones, best known for his role on the global hit series Smart Guy, executive produced this critically acclaimed feature film, penned (and executive produced) by Simon. The scintillating jazz soundtrack was the final composition of multiple Grammy Award nominee, Guggenheim Fellow and Lady of Soul Award winner, the late Geri Allen.

The Last Revolutionary follows two former Black revolutionaries, one who has become a modern day conservative suburbanite, while the other is still in the same apartment from 1972, wearing the same outfit, brandishing multiple weapons and calling his former "street warriors" to help him start the revolution all over again.

The two come into conflict as they debate the Obama Backlash, the Tea Party, and the path forward for Black America in the age of Trump.

John Marshall Jones currently stars as 'Special Agent Jay Griffin' on Amazon's hit police procedural series, Bosch, based on the bestselling books by Michael Connelly, opposite Titus Welliver.

Jones also recurs as ‘Sheriff Brown’ on the second season of the USA TV original drama series, Shooter, starring Ryan Phillipe and exec-produced by Mark Wahlberg. Jones is also starring on the Bounce TV hit comedy In The Cut, executive produced by Bentley Kyle Evans and featuring Dorien Wilson and Kellita Smith.

He recently booked the new FOX thriller, 9-1-1, starring Angela Bassett. Jones recently appeared on Criminal Minds, Rectify, The Mentalist, Shameless, Pretty Little Liars, Bones, NCIS and the upcoming feature films, THE CHILDREN, RUST CREEK and PAINT IT BLACK.

Levy Lee Simon MFA, whose stage plays have won both the Audelco Award and NAACP Theater Award, is originally from Harlem USA. His For the Love of Freedom trilogy, was the recipient of twenty- two NAACP Nominations, including two nominations for "Best Playwright," and an Ovation nomination for 'Best New Play'. His latest feature film, God, The Crackhouse, and The Devil begins principle photography in NYC in January 2018.

The film is executive produced/directed by Michael Brewer and executive produced/produced by Madeline Liebert.
