With a passion for everything he does, and keen insight that often belies his chronological age of 28 years, Jack Osbourne continues to expand his oeuvre in front of and behind the camera.
He recently came in third on Dancing With the Stars, beating expectations and becoming a fan favorite in the wake of his 2012 diagnosis of remitting multiple sclerosis. While embracing his role as an advocate raising awareness of MS, especially among young people, for himself Osbourne remains most focused on his career, his family, and new opportunities that await.
Osbourne remains a mainstay for television audiences, currently on the second season of Syfy’s Haunted Highway, which premiered on November 27, spotlighting Osbourne and his friend Dana Workman as they investigate claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads. Serving as co-anchor and West Coast correspondent for the daily live news show Fuse News on the music television channel, his production company Schweet Entertainment produced the Nat Geo Wild docu-series Alpha Dogs, with Osbourne serving as executive producer.
Also behind the camera, Jack Osbourne ambitiously took on both producer and director roles for a 2011 documentary about his father, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and is the first to tell the story of Ozzy’s tortured and emotionally fraught journey to sobriety. Jack previously directed a music video for Ozzy’s song Life Won’t Wait from the 2010 album Scream.
His passion for traveling and adventure fueled Jack Osbourne’s hit TV show Adrenaline Junkie, going around the world to conquer the most challenging activities. Throughout its five seasons he ran with bulls in Pamplona, climbed sea cliffs without ropes or harnesses, and fought and defeated a Thai martial arts expert. The series ran in over 100 countries and on six continents. His competitive spirit was also seen on Kelly’s Slater’s Celebrity Surf Invitational, coming in second and conquering such challenges as climbing El Capitan Mountain in Yosemite.
Along with a cameo in Austin Powers: Goldmember and a featured role in the film New York Minute, Osbourne has appeared on television shows such as Dawson’s Creek, The X Factor and That ‘70s Show. In his native UK, he has hosted programs such as Celebrity Wrestling for ITV and, with his family, the Brit Awards, the UK equivalent of the Grammys.
In October 2006, Jack Osbourne released his autobiography, Twenty One Years Gone. He was transparently honest about his life as he detailed the highs, the lows, his descent into addiction, his redemption and his passion for extreme sports.
Jack Osbourne makes his home in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Lisa Stelly, and their one-year-old daughter, Pearl.
