biography
  • * Professional actor bio

    Josiah Black is a Canadian/American film/TV actor on the uprise. He is most recently known for his work in such films as American Bad Boy (starring alongside Katt Williams), Kindergarten Cop 2 (where he played opposite Dolph Lundgren and Bill Bellamy), Sex and the Single Alien (directed by Peter Daskaloff) as well as various other notable credits with more to come.

    Josiah was born in Thailand where he spent the first five years of his life allowing him to develop his cultured background before his family moved to Mission, British Columbia, Canada. He then discovered his passion for the creative arts as a guitarist/singer in a rock band known as "Apprehended" with singer Aaron Anderson. He played in various bands and solo acts until he transitioned into acting at Vancouver Film School.

    Shortly after producing, writing and starring in projects of his own alongside his younger brother, Paul Black, they both abruptly up and moved to Venice, California to pursue their careers in acting while performing stand up comedy and modeling.

    Josiah still drops in frequently at the comedy clubs around Los Angeles or whichever town he is in. He also still loves to play and sing music whenever he gets the chance but you are most likely to catch him surfing with his wife, Alicia along the coast of California.
