Flashes forward a few years, and Elsass plays the role of Trip Richardson in Small Fire Everywhere with Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, and Joshua Jackson. For Elsass, the opportunity to work with such experienced actors for his first major project proved invaluable.
“It’s really strange even to be in a scene with someone who is very high level and who has been doing it for so long. And you learn a lot from them only in the scene with them. You know, they are very giving. And they just play you very different from many actors who might have worked with you, who might have just begun, “he said.
Jordan Elsass on Trip’s relationship with his mother
At the end of Small Fire Everywhere, a number of storylines surfaced. Especially, Elena expels Mia (Washington) and Pearl (Lexi Underwood) and they leave Shaker Heights.

And because Izzy just left … And there was so much emotion. And then he saw the brothers- his brother like going with it. “
While Lexie was the one who suggested setting fire, Trip was leading the charge.
“He finally took this step as a leader. And he rather likes, ‘Let’s do this.’ Like, ‘We will follow in Izzy’s footsteps.’ Lexie said it, but Trip was the one who took the gas and then liked to do it. You know, and I think that’s very strong, “Elsass told the Showbiz Cheat Sheet.
