Jovan Armand Biography
Jovan Armand is a multi-talented actor who is best known for his role of Pedro Peña as one of the supporting leads in the DC Comic studio film “Shazam!”. Prior to filming “Shazam,” Jovan played Brick’s best friend, Troy, on ABC’s hit show “The Middle.”
With additional television credits including “Hawaii Five-O,” “Parenthood,” “Shameless,” “Children’s Hospital,” Nickelodeon’s “Bella and the Bulldogs” and more, Jovan has demonstrated his talent and ability to connect with audiences.
The young actor of Salvadorian and Mexican descent has also been able to expand his resume with roles in many short films. Jovan starred as lead character, Gabe, in the 2017 film “Drowning,” which went on to win an Imagen Award for Best Theatrical Short. He also starred as ‘Chub/Diego’ in the 2014 film “Chub.”
After traveling the short film circuit, “Chub” won at the Gasparilla International Film Festival, International Film Awards Berlin and Sarasota Film Festival, in addition to being nominated at the Miami Film Festival and for an Imagen Award. Jovan’s stand-out performances don’t stop there as he also starred as ‘Francisco’ in the film “Miracle Maker.”
Ten years working as an actor has taught Jovan that having various talents is always a good thing. After portraying a young rapper in his friends’ music video and learning to rap the song, Jovan thought he would add music to his resume. Calling his style “the niche between Kidz Bop and Modern Rap,” Jovan strives to make music his generation would listen to without the negativity heard in mainstream rap.
He has entertained crowds at the Viper Room, Avalon at Hollywood, Los Angeles and Orange County Fairs and at several private events. Jovan’s new hit songs can be found on Amazon and Reverbnation. Born in East Los Angeles, Jovan decided at the ripe age of five that he was destined to become an actor and has been pursuing his dreams ever since.

‘Shazam!’ Star Reveals How He Was Cast
Shazam! is well on pace to make at least $50 million in its opening weekend and as positive reviews continue pouring in, it’s likely safe to say the latest film in the DCEU is going to be box office success. In the age of superhero blockbusters, they often keep most things under wraps ahead of release, even more so at the beginning when they’re just starting to cast actors.
ComicBook.com spoke with Shazam! star Jovan Armand, who confirms the studio had him audition for a character under a different name. Armand plays Pedro Peña in the upcoming film, although he was initially under the assumption he was auditioning for a different character.
“No idea, actually,” Armand says when asked if knew which part he was auditioning for. “They actually gave me a separate name. I think it was Carlos or something.”
“But they did give the title, which was a dead giveaway for me, because I had already played Injustice: Gods Among Us before the audition process,” the actor admits. “So I already had an idea of the character, and I knew it was a real film, just reading the script that they gave us.”
As Armand says, other than some tighter security, the auditioning process was not unlike getting any other gig. He started out by auditioning with casting director Rich Delia and when he got a callback, he interviewed director David F. Sandberg in-character.
“The first one I knocked it out with Rich, who was the casting director. He was amazing,” Armand says. “Really easy to work with. Good at giving direction, and then I got a callback with a director session, and that’s when I got to meet David Sandberg for the first time.”
“He listened to me do the audition with the regular lines,” he continues. “And then Sandberg kind of said, ‘Well, there’s not really much to go on here, so let’s just throw the script out the window and do an interview as the character,’ so he actually ended up interviewing me as Pedro, and from there they decided they wanted to choose me.”
Shazam! hits theaters April 5th. Other upcoming DC films include Joker on October 10th, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, The Batman on June 25, 2021, The Suicide Squad on August 6, 2021, and Aquaman 2 on December 16, 2022.
