Joel Moore

JOEL DAVID MOORE's numerous television commercial appearances and his work in film and television have made his unique look one of the most recognizable in the industry.

Moore continues to easily segue between the big and small screen. He recently finished shooting El Muerto with Wilmer Valderama and Art School Confidential with veterans John Malkovich and Anjelica Huston. In addition to his role in the NBC drama LAX, Moore also appeared as the sweet and loyal geek Owen in Fox's box office hit Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.

A native of Portland, Oregon, Moore studied performing arts in Ashland, where he earned his BFA. He used this training to secure a company spot for two summers at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, while also appearing in several local advertising campaigns.

In 2000, Joel moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. He immediately began working, securing several national commercials over the ensuing two years. He can be seen in spots for such high profile companies as McDonalds, Best Buy, Kohls and eBay, and is perhaps most recognized for his spot as the outspoken Cingular Minutes guy. Additionally, as the face of the international campaign for Siemens cell phones, Moore helped earn the spot a prestigious Lion Award. Moore has also appeared in guest-starring roles on such television shows as Boston Public, The Guardian and Six Feet Under.

Passionate about the importance of the arts and creativity in the community, Moore volunteers his time to Dreamcenter, an organization that creates theater and musical programs for people in the inner cities of Los Angeles.
