Keith Powers is best known as Anthony 'Theo,' on MTV's hit comedy series "Faking It," created by Carter Covington.
Powers started his acting career off on a high note when he booked the lead role in the Warner Bros.' comedy "House Party: Tonight's the Night." Building on his momentum, he starred as Dr. Dre's younger brother, Tyree Crayton, in the highly acclaimed Legendary Pictures biographical drama, "Straight Outta Compton." His other credits include YAHOO's basketball-themed comedy series, "Sin City Saints," an appearance in the series premiere of "Fear of the Walking Dead" and a recurring role on Freeform's "Recovery Road."

Born and raised in Sacramento, California, Powers was first discovered by Look Agency at just nine years of age. A talented wide receiver, he took a pause from modeling to concentrate on sports until after high school when he later joined JE Model agency in San Francisco. Although in talks with prestigious college football programs, he decided to pursue his second passion and went on to sign with the prestigious modeling agency Wilhelmina. He has since been featured in GQ fashion editorials, shot campaigns for Guess, Sketchers, Target, Sears, and walked the runway at Calvin Klein at Milan Fashion Week.
