Jon Abrahams biography
Date of Birth: October 29, 1977
This New York, N.Y. native never intended to have a career in front of the
cameras. "I wasn't looking to be a professional actor. I just sort of fell
into all of that," he has said. Abrahams got his start in
the film Kids when he was only 16 years old. He had been working in a club
where they were filming and was hoping to work as the director's assistant.
Instead he was offered the chance to read for a part and won a small role.
His small part in Kids led to a call from an agent and a role in the film
Dead Man Walking, starring Hollywood heavyweights Sean Penn and Susan
Sarandon. Abrahams found the experience of working on the film to be thrilling and decided to pursue acting as a profession.
Small films followed, but it was a role in the summer 2000 blockbuster Scary Movie that gave Abrahams some much needed exposure and a building buzz in the industry. In Meet the Parents, he played the son of movie-icon Robert DeNiro's character. "I grew up in the neighborhood he lives in, so he's always been kind of the neighborhood hero.
So I was always aware of his presence as an actor and a personality."
Since then, he's appeared in films such as My Boss's Daughter (2003) with Ashton Kutcher and House of Wax (2005) with Paris Hilton.
Abrahams likes to create hip-hop music when he's not working on a film.
