This is not the guy who played Dr. Evil's son, Scott, in the Austin Powers movies or who voices Chris on Family Guy. That was Seth Green, and Jamie Kennedy is not Seth Green; though, due to a passing resemblance, the former is often confused with the latter (never mind that Kennedy stands half a foot taller than Green).
Even if you don't know his name, if you've turned on a TV or been to the movies in the past 10 years, you've probably seen his face. The 43-year-old may be best known for his role as Randy Meeks in the first three Scream movies (and for dating Jennifer Love Hewitt for a minute), but his credits are as long as a career criminal's rap sheet. Kennedy's IMDB page lists more than 100 acting and voice jobs, dozens of producer and writer credits, and hundreds more appearances as himself. He even had his own TV series, The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, for a couple of years, and created and produced Heckler, a documentary about hecklers.
It is material he's quite familiar with because, yes, he's also a stand-up comic. Kennedy's stand-up will be on the big screen when his Clean Guys of Comedy special, featuring Kennedy, Dave Coulier and Ralph Harris, hits theaters across the country for one night on Thursday, Sept. 19.
Kennedy's comedy comes closer to home Friday, Aug. 30-Sunday, Sept. 1, when he takes the stage at Liquid. Go see the guy do his thing--well, one of them anyway--and you probably won't forget his name again.
