Josh Kelly stars in Lifetime’s drama series “UnREAL” inspired by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s award-winning independent short “Sequin Raze.” Kelly stars as “Jeremy Caner” in this provocative titillating drama, which gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program. In addition, to his breakout role in UnREAL, Kelly is best known for his role as “Cutter Wentworth” on ABC’s Emmy winning daytime series “One Life to Live.” Other television credits include “Ben and Kate,” “Army Wives,” “True Blood,” and “Dollhouse,” to name a few. His feature film acting credits include “Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” among many others.
Born in Yokosuka, Japan to a Navy family, Kelly was active in theater from a young age as he moved around the globe. After four tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan as an Army Ranger, Josh moved to Los Angeles to return to his passion: acting. In honor of his military background, Josh is a huge advocate for the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001. Josh also wrote, directed, produced and starred in the short film “COPE,” a story of two special operations soldiers who return from war wrought with post-traumatic stress.
