Jeremy Howard biography
Date of Birth: June 12, 1981
A native of Burbank, California, Jeremy Patrick Howard is the son of actor Joe Howard and late actress/weapons handler Sharon Hess. From an early age, it was clear the acting gene had been passed on from parents to son.
At the age of six, Jeremy first appeared on screen in a national commercial. Although he has since enjoyed success in both TV and film, his early start in commercials paved his career path and he now has over 40 commercials to his credit.
Jeremy's first creative role came at age 11 in the 1992 TV movie Crash Landing: The Rescue of Flight 232, an Emmy-winning drama starring Charlton Heston and James Coburn.
His first feature film role was in the 1995 movie The Cure, about two boys who vow to find a cure for AIDS during one eventful summer. The movie starred child star Brad Renfro.
In 1996, Jeremy went back to TV for an episode of the series Saved by the Bell: The New Class before picking up a part as Kyle in the Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver-led sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) marked his comeback to film. He played Drew Lou Who and reportedly shaved off his eyebrows for the part in an effort to cut down on the time the makeup crew had to spend on him.
In 2002, Jeremy appeared in the comedy series Just Shoot Me! and followed that role with a part in Men In Black II.
He played a dead nerd in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2002) and in the same year took a small role in the Oscar-nominated Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio.
From 2003 to 2006, Jeremy landed parts in several TV shows, including Malcolm in the Middle, Judging Amy, Scrubs, Entourage and My Name is Earl. Throughout the same period, he appeared in the films The Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy, Lady in the Water with Bryce Dallas Howard and Accepted with Justin Long.
Over the years he's also made guest appearances on Monk, House, Breaking Bad and Grey's Anatomy. From 2014 to 2015 he played a regular role as Philip on the Disney Channel series Mighty Med. He has also played a recurring role on two episodes of the Disney Channel series K.C. Undercover.
In one of his biggest roles to date, he landed the role of Donatello in 2014's feature film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He reprised the role in the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016).
Jeremy, whose nickname is "The Neck," stands at a towering 6"4.
