In the TV movie The Breaks, three young friends – Nikki, David, and Deevee – are trying their best to break into the emerging hip-hop scene in New York in the summer of 1990. Nikki Jones (Afton Williamson) proves her dedication to the genre by giving up a scholarship to law school in order to take an internship at record label Fouray Entertainment. Her boyfriend David Aaron (David Call) has a way in — his father George “Juggy” Aaron is an old school manager “from the days of payola” — but David wants to make it own his own. The movie is based on Dan Charnas’ 2011 book The Big Payback.
George “Juggy” Aaron is portrayed by Evan Handler. The New York native is best known for his roles on The Astronaut Wives Club (Duncan Porter), Californication (Charlie Runkle), Necessary Roughness (Marshall Pittman), The West Wing (Douglas Wegland), and on Sex and the City as Charlotte’s husband Harry Goldenblatt. The Breaks premieres on VH1 on January 4 at 9pm.
