About Jamie KennedyJanuary 1-2, 2010
A multitalented comedian-actor-writer-producer, is a true hyphenate. He may be seen acting in a film one minute and on stage doing stand up the next. Kennedy skyrocketed to fame with a groundbreaking performance and scene-stealing rants in Wes Craven's Scream

and Will Smith.
In September of 2008, Kennedy's documentary which he produced with Michael Addis called Heckler
, will be released. The film played at both the Tribeca and AFI Film Festivals and has been met with critical acclaim. Variety calls it "Hilarious!"

Heckler is a comedic feature documentary exploring the increasingly critical world we live in, and asks some interesting questions of people such as Jon Voight, George Lucas, Bill Maher, Mike Ditka, Rob Zombie and many more.
Kennedy was last seen on the big screen in his starring roles in Yari Film Group's Kickin' It Old Skool
