James Harvey Kennedy was born on May 25, 1970 (Jamie Kennedy age: 51) in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. Kennedy has five siblings; he has one older brother and four older sisters. His family is Catholic. Kennedy graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School in 1988 and moved to Los Angeles shortly after to pursue an acting career.


Kennedy made his film debut as an extra in Dead Poets Society. Kennedy initially struggled to find roles in Hollywood, and eventually decided to act as his own agent, using the pseudonym Marty Power. He booked his next role in 1994 for the TV series VR Troopers and later appeared in California Dreams in the same year. In 1996, he portrayed Sampson in Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.


Kennedy came to mainstream attention for his performance as Randy Meeks in the Scream film series. He appeared in Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997) and Scream 3 (2000). In 1998, he won the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Supporting Actor in the horror division for his role in Scream 2.

From 2002 to 2004, Kennedy hosted his own TV show called The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, a hidden camera show with comedic elements.

From 2008 to 2010, Kennedy played Eli James in the series Ghost Whisperer alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt.

From 2009 to 2013, Kennedy played Federline Jones in a voice role in The Cleveland Show. He also voiced Kyle Bloodworth-Thomason and Fankylechum in Fanboy & Chum Chum from 2009 to 2014.

In 2020, Kennedy had his own comedy special, Jamie Kennedy: Stoopid Smart.


In an exclusive talk with uInterview, Kennedy revealed some details about his new stand-up special Stoopid Smart, and what he thinks the job of a comic is. Stoopid Smart includes some of Kennedy’s meditations on fame, thoughts about robots, and even college scams.

Kennedy noted the difficulty of 2020 and shared that he hoped comedy could provide relief for watchers who might be feeling overwhelmed. “I think a comic’s job is to let some airs out of tires,” he told uInterview. What, for Kennedy, is the role of a comic? “A good comic is a voice of society to hold a mirror up to itself. This special has a little bit of that, but it’s a lot more fun escape.”

Any other projects for fans of Kennedy to look forward to? Kennedy completed filming a new movie titled Crabs in the Bucket, which is currently in the post-production process.


Kennedy dated former Ghost Whisper co-star Hewitt from 2009 to 2010.

Kennedy has lived in Los Feliz, California since 2007.

In 2016, Kennedy revealed on the television show The Doctors that he was diagnosed with congenital heart block at ten years old and has had a pacemaker since age 14.
