JAY MOHR BIOGRAPHY Jay Mohr is a multiple threat. Film, television, radio, writing, stand-up, and producing are all among the skill sets he has accomplished throughout a career that has spanned over a decade. In the film world, he has co-starred in over 20 features, opposite some of the most powerful actors and actresses of our generation, including Tom Cruise, Jennifer Aniston, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Edward Burns, Katie Holmes, Keanu Reeves, Kate Hudson, and Academy Award winners Angelina Jolie, Forest Whitiker, Kim Bassinger, Kevin Spacey, Ellen Burstyn, Christopher Walken, Helen Hunt, and Al Pacino. In television, in the scripted arena, he starred in the critically acclaimed Fox series Action (produced by Joel Silver and the late Ted Demme) and in the reality genre, he created, executive produced and hosted NBC's smash hit Last Comic Standing, now in its fifth season. In radio, he often guest hosts Premiere Radio's Jim Rome Show, the number one syndicated sports radio program in the country and is a frequent guest on LA's number one morning show, KROQ's Kevin & Bean, as well as several other syndicated shows. In stand-up, he sells out theaters, clubs and colleges all over the country, earning standing ovations for his keen observations on the world and the unique groups of people who live in it. The multi-talented Mohr first received audience notice with his dead-on impressions of Christopher Walken, Ricki Lake, Dick Vitale and Sean Penn on Saturday Night Live. Soon after that, he landed his breakthrough film role as a rival agent to Cruise in the blockbuster hit Jerry Maguire and followed that up in a touching good-guy turn opposite Jennifer Aniston in Picture Perfect. His other film credits include dramatic turns in the movies Playing By Heart, Suicide Kings, Seeing Other People, Even Money, The Groomsmen, Pay it Forward, and Go (directed by Doug Liman), as well as comedic leads in such films as King's Ransom and Are We There Yet? Mohr published his first book, the highly praised Gasping for Airtime (Hyperion), a darkly funny, brutally honest memoir of his two years in the trenches as a writer and featured performer on Saturday Night Live. Additionally, Mohr is well known for his respected sports work as host of Fox's NFL This Morning, narrator of the award winning Beyond the Glory, and Mohr Sports, a uniquely original weekly comedy/music/sports talk hour he executive produced and hosted for ESPN. Presently, Jay can be seen starring opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt (as Professor Rick Payne) on the hit CBS television series The Ghost Whisperer .
