Comedian, actor, television writer, author, and musician Paul Reiser has spent the last 30+ years acting in Oscar and Emmy award-winning movies and TV shows. He was voted one of Comedy Central’s “Top 100 Comedians of All Time.”
2017 has been an exciting year for the NY-bred and LA-based Reiser, who has made a number of appearances on screen and even lent his talents behind the camera.
Reiser created and produced the seven-episode series “There’s…. Johnny!” The series, which Reiser co-created with filmmaker David Steven Simon and co-produced with David Gordon Green, will intertwine authentic footage from ‘The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson’ with the coming-of-age story of Andy, a wide-eyed 19-year-old Nebraskan who stumbles into a job at the iconic show. “There’s…. Johnny!” will premiere on Hulu.
Reiser has joined the cast of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ for the series’ highly anticipated second season, which will be released on October 27. In a role created by the Duffer brothers with him specifically in mind, Reiser will play Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member of the Department of Energy who is brought to the small town to investigate the supernatural situations at play.
Reiser collaborates once again with David Gordon Green (‘Pineapple Express,’ ‘Prince Avalanche’), as well as with Steven Soderbergh on the critically-acclaimed hit Amazon series ‘Red Oaks.’ Reiser’s role as Doug Getty, the president of a New Jersey country club in a nostalgic 80’s themed setting, was called “one of his absolute finest, no just of late, but of ever.” The show’s third and final season will premiere Fall of 2017.
Additionally, Reiser has been cast in the latest project of ‘Mad Men’ showrunner Matthew Weiner, ‘The Romanoffs.’ The forthcoming Amazon mini-series is centered around the modern-day descendants of the mysterious Romanov dynasty. Reiser will co-star alongside Christina Hendricks, Isabelle Huppert and Jack Huston. The show is set to be released in 2018.
Reiser’s recent films include John McDonagh’s ‘War on Everyone’ with Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena, ‘The Book of Love’ with Jessica Biel and Jason Sudeikis,’The Little Hours’ with John C. Reilly and Aubrey Plaza, which was officially selected for this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and the Lake Bell-directed ‘I Do… Until I Don’t’ with Ed Helms, Amber Heard, and Mary Steenburgen.
