Denim Richards

as Jack Brown

As an actor, Denim Richards has been performing for over two decades with over 20 musical theater productions and numerous TV and film credits under his belt. Presently he can be found in his recurring role as Colby in Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone, starring opposite Kevin Costner.

In 2006, Denim took 1st place in acting and singing in the Los Angeles NAACP competition. He went on to take 4th in nationals. For those who knew him well, the accolades came as no surprise. Denim found his passion for the arts when he was just six years old while performing as a guest soloist at the world renowned Crystal Cathedral. Since then, he has never looked back. Through his acting, Denim loves to guide audiences through a range of emotions that leave them feeling uplifted and inspired. He is often attracted to roles that require extreme character development and vocal ability.

Denim has always had a burning desire to own, and decided to start his own production company, Lazer Focus Productions, LLC (LFP). LFP is a multi-ethnic company that takes pride in telling original stories of immense quality, while simultaneously providing opportunities for professionals in the entertainment industry. Denim believes that there is amazing talent everywhere, and LFP is the platform that is needed to showcase that talent.

Denim's brand is Love. He believes that everyone should receive it; especially children. Denim strongly believes that, "in this day in age where everyone is so busy, we have to remember that the youth are our future.” Because of this, he decided to start his own nonprofit Youth Empowering Success (Y.E.S.). Y.E.S focuses on giving youth a positive voice through the arts - singing, acting, dancing, public speaking, and or filmmaking. Along with his own nonprofit, he also mentors 3rd, 4th and 5th grade middle school children at MLK Elementary.

Denim is also very active in many different charities such as United Steps, which addresses homelessness, RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), Rowell Foster Children, and the Innocent Justice Foundation.

Denim hopes to be a positive role model to inspire children all around the world, and give them hope for an amazing future.
