BIO

After 35 years of steady work in film and television, and approaching 150 credits on his IMDB page, actor and comedian Jason Stuart has achieved a pinnacle of success many actors only dream of. “For the last few years, people have started to approach me and say, ‘You’re that guy,’” he explains with his characteristic gravelly laugh. Indeed, with guest-starring and supporting credits in everything from Judd Apatow’s “Love” to “My Wife and Kids” to “Tangerine” and “The Birth of a Nation,” Stuart has now established himself as one of those all-too-familiar faces who might just pop up anywhere, in any kind of role.

It’s just the latest remarkable but true chapter in the career of Stuart, a longtime veteran of stand-up comedy, born in the Bronx and raised in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. A self-described insecure Jewish kid who turned to theatre and performing to mask his emerging sexual identity - he jokes about going to see Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl” as a youth and falling in love with Omar Sharif. His talent and determination got him some early professional work in films like “Kindergarten Cop,” “Vegas Vacation,” and TV shows like “Murder, She Wrote” and “The Drew Carey Show.” But by the early-90s, frustrated by years of living in the closet, Stuart chose to come out publicly on an episode of Geraldo Rivera’s talk show focused on “Unconventional Comedians.”

That led to a wave of interest in Stuart as a “gay comedian,” giving his act new material and energy, and a purpose (his sexuality, as a Los Angeles Times article from 1995 states, is “a full-time job”). Today, Stuart marvels at how much has changed about the visibility of sexually diverse actors and celebrities, having experienced the transition from “closeted” to “gay” to “queer.” “That was such a negative word, ‘queer,’” he says. “It was a word ‘they’ would call you and it still takes some getting used to, but I can see how things are changing. And of course, I’m not just gay or queer, it’s just a part of who I am: I’m also a Jew, a man of a certain age, a lover, a friend and a son. But it’s always a part of who I am.”

Just as his identity as a gay man has not fully defined his career, Stuart is also proud of how he has kept his reputation as a comedian while still flourishing as an actor. “I’ve always thought about myself as an actor first, comedian second,” he says. “When I think of what I want to do with the next phase of my career, I think about being a great character actor. I revered the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, his ability to always disappear into his characters, no matter the role. He was a character actor who happened to be a movie star.”

A look at Stuart’s most recent work underscores this, notably playing a similar part – a detective in a crime drama – in two wildly different ways. In Prince Bagdasarian’s “Abducted,” he plays a police sidekick – “My version of J. K. Simmons or Paul Giamatti,” he explains citing two more character actor role models. “I played him like my brother, who has been slightly irritated his entire life.” On the other side of the coin is the private detective character Stuart creates in Jon Dabach’s “Immortal,” a new thriller co-starring Samm Levine and Dylan Baker. “He’s much more powerful and intimidating.”

For Stuart, one of the most significant moments in his recent career was being cast as Joseph Randall, one of the villainous plantation owners at the wrong end of a rebellion in Nate Parker’s searing historical drama, “The Birth of a Nation.” Being cast by Parker was a sign for Stuart that he had turned the corner from funny gay comic to established character actor. “I remember Nate saying to me that part of what he wanted was my activism,” he recalls. “He wanted advocates for different communities, and he knew that I’d represented not just the LGBTQ community, but I’ve worked on behalf of Black Lives Matter, the homeless, youth, and Jewish causes.”

At the same time, taking on the role of an empowered racist in 1831 Virginia also allowed Stuart to reflect on his own evolving complex identity. “How can I be gay and Jewish and have white privilege?” he found himself wondering through working on Parker’s film. “It helped me establish this new part of my career, and it changed me as an actor and a human being,” he says of the experience. “To tell the history of this man, Nat Turner, who had the audacity, tenaciousness and self-esteem as a black man, in 1831, to stand up against his slave owners knowing he would be murdered. Is he mentally ill? A martyr? Touched by God? To be part of that story, to work with talented people like Nate Parker and Armie Hammer, was exactly what I wanted my career to be about.”

These days, Stuart keeps his comedy chops polished through stand-up gigs all over the country and his new weekly radio gig with Dash Radio (“Riffing with Jason Stuart”). He continues to serve as the National Co-Chairman of the SAG-AFTRA LGBTQ Committee, and has a memoir about to be published from CCB Publishing (“Shut Up, I’m Talking!”) He’s also just completed a number of projects, including a new comedy web series “Smothered,” co-created with Mitch Hara; the Sundance hit “The Infiltrators” from directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra; and the high school comedy “DIVOS!” with Marissa Jaret Winokur and Nicole Sullivan. He also just starred in the short “Hank” from director Hongyu Li and co-starring Jay Disney, about a gay couple who consider an open relationship, which continues to earn praise at numerous festivals, including winning the Best LGBTQ Short at this year’s Los Angeles International Film Festival.

“It’s still a challenge to get the next great role,” he says of his passion for acting as a career. “When I was a kid there were three networks, the movies, and the theatre. Now there’s a hundred networks, movies that stream on your phones, and theatres, and TV, and pay-per-view, and social media…so how does someone know you?” he asks. For now, he’s happy enough to take on any role and thrive. “Someone recognized me from both ‘My Wife and Kids’ and ‘The Birth of a Nation,’ and they said, ‘You’re that guy! We used to love you, now we hate you because you play all these villains!’ I’m the guy who can do that – I’m ‘that guy!’”

JASON STUART, a veteran character actor and comedian with lots of credits, feels like this is the end. PAUL ELIA, just off the plane from Detroit with very few credits, feels like this is the beginning.ALEXANDRA PAUL, Baywatch babe with infinity credits, feels they’re both ready for a mental institution!

All three have decided to take their careers into their own hands and do a show about what they know best. Themselves.
This is their story.

This 6 episode web series is a heartfelt true-to-life comedy/drama about a middle aged, gay, Jewish man and a straight, starry eyed kid who find friendship….without sex. Add their bossy, WASP movie star best friend who supports them through the trials and tribulations of making it in the cold hard business of Hollywood, whether they want it or not….Oy, I’m exhausted!

Funny and engaging, you will relate to this series no matter where you live, or in what business you work. Mentor is about pursuing your dreams, supporting your friends, and trying not to overeat or have sex with people you don’t know when things get too hard.

The Story of "Being bullied As A Teenager"

Jason Stuart on Geraldo

That Certain Summer

Coming Out In Hollywood: Being Openly Gay In The Workplace

Jason Stuart’s lecture on “The IN’s and OUT’s of Being Openly Gay in the Workplace” is now available for touring on college campuses. In addition to being an uproarious comic and prolific character actor, the demand for Jason’s signature Q & A has led to a real interest for an extended close up view of his being gay and tackling homophobia. He does this with depth and humor, like no one else.

Stuart’s work transcends from entertainment to real-life as an advocate and mentor. As the current SAG-AFTRA’s LGBT Actors Committee National co-chair, Jason Stuart was just honored with the Jose Julio Sarria International Civil Rights Award, which was presented by the International Imperial Court System and She Persist Award (Elizabeth Warren inspired Award) for his with LGBT Actors.

He is able to perform an outrageous stand up show, a lecture for faculty and students, and a brown bag lunch chat with the LGBTQQIA campus activists at a price you can afford.

Jason shares his the intimate details of growing up and being bullied all through his school years, and being plagued with thoughts of suicide as a youth. He opens up his heart with his experience, and the strength and hope of overcoming the brutal treatment he experienced growing up a in public school.

He reveals his life growing up with his over-the-top Jewish family with a father who grew up in the Holocaust with post traumatic stress syndrome, a flamboyant mother with 4 husbands from Brooklyn, an overweight, angry brother who has a daughter who is schizophrenic, and an orthodox Jewish sister who has banished him from her family with 4 children. Jason has never been allowed to meet his nieces and nephews, yet lives five minutes from their home.

Jason uses his talents as an openly gay actor and comedian to support the community by performing at countless benefits for issues ranging from HIV-AIDS, LGBT rights, marriage equality, and the dignity of all regarding gender expression for the last 18 years. He is currently the national chairman of the first ever SAG AFTRA LGBT Committee, and into addition to producing the annual comedy benefit for Lifeworks Mentoring Program for gay youth.

Jason shatters the misconceptions of Tinsel Town and has the ability to speak from his heart with humor and compassion, and in a transformative fashion builds the resolve of LGBT and questioning youth, and wins the souls of prospective allies.

He says “I am no different from you. Just more people know me. Let me take you by the hand and support you into a more enlightened life!”
