Jay Mohr is a quadruple threat. Film, television, radio and stand-up are all among the treasures in the bag of tricks he's been working on throughout the 13-year career he began as a teenager.
He has worked with superstars, holding his own with Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire" and most recently in the upcoming "Simone" with Al Pacino and Winona Ryder, "Pluto Nash" with Eddie Murphy and "Speaking of Sex" with Bill Murray. On television, Mohr recently starred as Peter Dragon in the critically acclaimed Fox series, "Action" and has made guest appearances on "Fastlane."
He often guest hosts Premiere Radio's "Jim Rome Show," the number one syndicated sports radio program in the country. He is a regular guest on the nationally syndicated "Opie and Anthony Show" out of New York, and on L.A.'s number one morning show, KROQ's "Kevin and Bean."
For his stand-up performances, Mohr sells out theaters, clubs and colleges all over the country, earning standing ovations for his keen observations on the world and the people who live in it.
The multi-talented Mohr had his breakthrough role as a rival agent to Cruise in the blockbuster hit "Jerry Maguire," and followed up in a touching good-guy turn opposite Jennifer Aniston in "Picture Perfect." He starred in Doug Liman's critically adored "Go" and most recently in "Pay It Forward" with Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt. His other film credits include "Playing By Heart," "Suicide Kings" and "Small Soldiers."
Mohr first wowed audiences as a regular on Saturday Night Live with his dead-on impressions of Christopher Walken, Rikki Lake, Dick Vitale and Sean Penn. From there the New Jersey boy made his move on Hollywood.
His work last year as host of Fox's, "NFL This Morning" and narrator of "Beyond the Glory" now leads to "Mohr Sports," a weekly comedy/music/sports talk hour which premiered April 2, 2002 on ESPN.
Mohr, his wife and their baby reside in Los Angeles, CA.
