JJ Parker is the life of every Beverly High party and a linebacker of the Eagles after giving up being a QB. He is a star both on and off the field, and friend to all. He’s the life of the party and always ready to make sure his friends are living their best lives while he figures out the best way to authentically live his. He is portrayed by Hunter Clowdus.


Personality

He is very grounded, consistent, and genuine. Even though his antics may be mischievous at times, he has no ill will. He’s a "good vibes only" kind of guy, who treats his friends like family. In season 4, he finally opened up about how the rivalry between Coastal and CGolden Angeles is just part of driving a wedge into their friendship, and also confessed that he wasn't seen much back in the summer of his freshman year of high school because he and his father was involved in a car accident when the other driver was drunk.

Due to his happy-go-lucky attitude, he never talks about his struggles or hardships. He was only found out about his poor grades in college when Mr. Coach Montes sent Asher to post the academic ineligibility notices to the assistant coaches. He is also very observant and actually a very thorough planner when motivated.

In Murder Was The Case, he planned an elaborate murder mystery case of character assassination of his future self because he felt the friendships he helped built in high school is falling apart around him, at worst: They would completely drift apart in 2 years, completely ruining the wish of them still being friends in 20 years.
