Almost ten years after alighting in Hollywood, Jamie Kennedy’s acting career starts to take off. His big break comes when he is cast in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.
Then his career skyrockets when he is cast as the articulately cynical geek, Randy Meeks, in Wes Craven’s Scream, which breaks box office records, spawns a successful renewal of the horror genre, and lands him a Blockbuster Best Supporting Actor Award.
Roles follow alongside Steve Martin in Bowfinger and George Clooney in Three Kings.
Through a slew of career successes and setbacks, Jamie does what he knows best – persevere. Five years later, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (JKX), a television show that can best be described as a combination of Candid Camera and Saturday Night Live, is born.
JKX quickly becomes The WB’s highest-ranking new show, attracting three million viewers each week.
Jamie is currently producing two new series for The WB airing in early 2005: reality-based The Starlet and the comedy Living With Fran (starring Fran Drescher).
