Romany Malco

Biography

Actor, writer, director and producer Romany Malco redefines what it means to be a chameleon and multihyphenate with his diverse skill set and wide-ranging talent in both comedy and drama.

Malco wrote, produced, directed and stars in the mockumentary film, "Prison Logic," based on his web series of the same name, which is due out in theaters next year. The film centers on his alter ego, Tijuana Jackson, an ex-convict with dreams of becoming a self-made motivational speaker and life coach. Romany raised over $200,000 through a crowdfunding campaign to fund the film.

Malco recently finished shooting the Netflix film "Holiday Rush," where he stars as a single dad who loses his job right as his four kids share their Christmas lists.

On television, Malco currently stars as Rome in ABC's drama series "A Million Little Things," alongside Ron Livingston, James Roday and David Giuntoli. The series follows a group of friends who, for different reasons and in different ways, are all stuck in their lives. But when one of them dies unexpectedly, it's just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living. Malco was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for this role.

Malco's breakout role was as the trash-talking womanizer Jay in Judd Apatow's 2005 box office hit, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." Since then, he has appeared in several memorable roles alongside some of the biggest names in film, including "Last Vegas," alongside Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Douglas; box office hits "Think Like A Man" and "Think Like A Man Too"; The "Love Guru," alongside Mike Meyers; "Blades of Glory" with Will Ferrell and Will Arnett; and "Baby Mama," alongside Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Additional film credits include Malcolm D. Lee's "Night School," opposite Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart; "Top Five," written and directed by Chris Rock; indie comedy "The Chateau," alongside Paul Rudd; "When the Bough Breaks," opposite Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall; ensemble comedy "Almost Christmas"; "A Little Bit of Heaven," starring Kate Hudson; and "Saint John of Las Vegas" with Steve Buscemi.

On television, Malco is known for his role on the critically acclaimed Showtime series "Weeds," opposite Mary-Louise Parker and Kevin Nealon. He also had a recurring role on Starz sitcom "Blunt Talk," opposite Sir Patrick Stewart. Additional television credits include CBS drama "The Good Wife," Amazon dark comedy "Mad Dogs" and ABC comedy "No Ordinary Family."

Malco is of Trinidadian descent and was born in Brooklyn, New York. When he isn't in production, he resides in Puerto Rico.
