Actor, producer and comedian Jamie Kennedy’s recent work includes starring roles in the latest installment of the Tremors film franchise for Universal, Chris Carter’s (The X-files) Amazon drama pilot The After, and now NBC’s new medical dramedy, Heartbeat. He is also voicing multiple characters on the new Comedy Central animated series, Legends Of Chamberlain Heights. Kennedy also had a recurring role as a sleazy boxing manager on Navy Street (Kingdom) for DirectTV, and before that he was a voice actor on Fox’s The Cleveland Show. Jamie can also be seen performing his stand up show around the country.
Jamie landed his big break when he was cast in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as a punked-out rival to John Leguizamo. His career soon kicked into high gear as he co-starred in his breakthrough performance as Randy Meeks in Wes Craven’s Scream and its follow-up Scream 2. Jamie has worked alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Steve Martin in Bowfinger and Greg Kinnear in the Oscar-nominated As Good As It Gets.
In 2002, Kennedy created The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, which became the WB’s highest-rated show. Kennedy portrayed a number of wacky characters, but the audience’s favorite was Brad Gluckman, the white rapper from Malibu. In 2003, Kennedy brought Brad Gluckman to the hit film, Malibu’s Most Wanted.
Along with those films mentioned above Jamie has had memorable roles in fan favorites like Three Kings directed by David O. Russell, Enemy of the State directed by Tony Scott, Boiler Room opposite Vin Diesel and over 190 episodes of television under his belt with networks that include CBS, WB, MTV, Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC, Fox, and VH1.
