Josh Radnor is perhaps best known for his role as Ted, the central character on CBS's Emmy-nominated comedy How I Met Your Mother, but Radnor's talents extend beyond acting. He has quickly established himself as both a gifted writer and director.
Radnor will next be seen in his second feature film, Liberal Arts, which he also wrote and directed. He will star in the film alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins and Allison Janney. The film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and will be released later this year by IFC.
Radnor wrote, directed, and starred in his first feature film HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE, featuring an ensemble cast including Richard Jenkins, Malin Akerman, Kate Mara, Zoe Kazan, and Tony Hale. The film debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for Favorite U.S. Drama. The film was released in March 2011 by Anchor Bay.
In addition to film and television, Radnor starred on Broadway as the title character in The Graduate opposite Kathleen Turner and Alicia Silverstone. Off-Broadway and regionally, he has appeared at the Manhattan Theater Club, The Vineyard Theater, and Baltimore Center Stage, among others.
In Los Angeles, he originated the roles of Young Sandy and Sam in the Ovation Award-winning world premiere production of Jon Robin Baitz's The Paris Letter at the Kirk Douglas Theater, roles he subsequently reprised for the L.A. Theater Works radio version broadcast on NPR.
His television credits include guest appearances on ER, Six Feet Under, Judging Amy, and Law & Order, among others. He was a series regular on ABC's The Court starring Sally Field. He made his film debut in the original teen spoof Not Another Teen Movie.
Radnor has had several articles published in the Los Angeles Times Magazine. He has also written for Guilt and Pleasure Magazine, Moviemaker Magazine, Indiewire, and The Huffington Post.
