After attending and matriculating from Monsignor Bonner High School during 1988, Jamie decided to pursue a career in Hollywood. He acquired various roles as an extra and also did voice impersonations and then voice acting. He had difficulty finding an agent and after auditioning for over 80 commercials, he still couldn’t land a single job. Because of this, he took a job as a telemarketer, and then realized that he had enough skills to sell and represent himself. He created the false identity “Marty Power” to get a chance to talk to other agents and managers, and eventually, he got his breakout role in the film “Scream” as Randy Meeks. He also starred in “Son of the Mask” – however, this only earned him a nomination for a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor. His net worth didn’t suffer much.
He then started a production company called Wannabe Producers which became responsible for numerous television shows including “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment”, “Blowin’ Up” and “Living with Fran”. Kennedy also had an appearance in “Criminal Minds” and later secured a role as a psychology professor in the series “Ghost Whisperer”. He subsequently appeared in “The Cleveland Show” which aired from 2009 to 2013. A few of his latest works include “First Night 2013 with Jamie Kennedy”, “Buddy Hutchins” and “Tremors 5”.
Aside from television and film, Jamie Kennedy has become well known for his stand-up comedy routines. His show “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” focused on stand-up and became the highest rated show of its network during 2002. The show however only lasted three years before discontinuing due to declining viewership. Another work he was involved in is called “Unwashed: The Stand Up Special”, in 2006.
Jamie has also been known to do voiceovers and voice acting especially for video games and cartoons, showcasing his talents in video games like “ESPN NFL 2k5”. His work as a host and emcee in the video game industry was short-lived however, as many complained about his lack of knowledge. He also did the voice of Kyle for the Nicktoon “Fanboy and Chum Chum”.
Jamie has also written an autobiography which was called “Wannabe: A Hollywood Experiment”, which details his efforts in making it as a star in Hollywood, and describing his life and family before telling stories about living in Hollywood and meeting other unusual characters.
