A college football stand-out at Louisville, Kerry was a fourth-round draft pick of the N.Y. Jets in 2005, going on to play for the Arizona Cardinals in 2012.

Kerry's production company, The Comeback Kids, specializes in "feature film, commercial, and digital media production that stylishly entertains the minds of a fast-paced, new age audience." Founded in 2014, The Comeback Kids teamed with Pelican House productions and have multiple award-winning feature films in distribution worldwide. Kerry's upcoming production credits include PROTOCOL, THE DECISION, GENERAL EDUCATION, QUEEN OF MEDIA, and RESERVATION.
In addition to acting and producing, Kerry helms The Rhodes Foundation, a charity which "provides opportunities for college-bound youth in impoverished communities. As a product of Kerry's belief in the transformative power of education and the importance of inspiring young minds, the foundation's fundamental aim is to propel ambitious men and women by giving them the resources they need to achieve their goals and dreams. It operates on two initiatives: to help support and improve America's education system, and to provide scholarships for aspiring academics."
