Biography

When it comes to taking personal responsibility for the environment, few individuals can match the record of actor and activist Ed Begley, Jr. Known for turning up at Hollywood events on his bicycle, he has served as chairman of the Environmental Media Association and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. He serves on the boards of organizations including the Thoreau Institute, the Earth Communications Office, Tree People and Friends of the Earth.

Mr. Begley's work has earned both praise and awards from numerous environmental groups including the California League of Conservation Voters, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Coalition for Clean Air, Heal the Bay, the Santa Monica Baykeeper, the Southern California Gas Company, and the American Lung Association.

Currently, Ed Begley is the co-star of the hit Planet Green/Discovery series Living with Ed, a look at the day-to-day realities of "living green" with his not so environmentalist wife Rachelle Carson. His book Living Like Ed is currently available nationally from Clarkson Potter/Random House. His new book Ed Begley, Jr.'s Guide to Sustainable Living--Learning to Conserve Resources and Manage an Eco-Conscious Life, also from Clarkson/Potter Publishers, had an August 25, 2009 release. He continues to tour the country giving speeches about his sustainable living practices.

Inspired by the works of his Academy Award-winning father, Mr. Begley became an actor. He first came to audiences' attention for his portrayal of Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the long-running hit television series St. Elsewhere, for which he received six Emmy nominations. Since then, he has moved easily between feature films, television, and theatre projects. He has appeared in A Mighty Wind, the follow-up to the American Comedy Award-winning film Best In Show starring Christopher Guest, Catherine O'Hara, and Eugene Levy. He can also be seen in the most recent Christopher Guest film For Your Consideration. Other feature film credits include Batman Forever, The Accidental Tourist, and The Inlaws.

In 2008, Ed Begley had supporting roles in the theatrical comedy Pineapple Express starring Seth Rogan, and the HBO feature Recount starring Kevin Spacey. He has also wrapped work on a new Woody Allen comedy in New York City titled Whatever Works that is scheduled for release in 2009.

On television, Mr. Begley has had recurring roles on Six Feet Under and Arrested Development. He has also guest starred on such series as The West Wing and The Practice, in addition to David E. Kelly's latest show Boston Legal. Most recently, he was featured in Veronica Mars and CSI: Miami. In August 2008, he returned to prime time network television as a series regular on the new CBS sitcomGary Unmarried starring Jay Mohr.

Ed Begley also starred in the West Coast premiere of David Mamet's Cryptogram at the Geffen Playhouse, in a role that he first performed in Boston and then in New York. He also starred in Mr. Mamet's production of Romance at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.

Mr. Begley has also directed several episodes of the hit TV series NYPD Blue as well as a stage play that he wrote called Cesar and Ruben that won a Nos Otros Award and four Valley Theater League awards.

Ed Begley, Jr. lives in Studio City, CA in a small, energy efficient home with his wife and co-star Rachelle Carson and their daughter.
