Jay Duplass        

Star of Amazon's Series "Transparent" & Writer of HBO's "Togetherness"

Jay Duplass, along with his brother, Mark Duplass, first made a name for himself writing and directing several award-winning short films. His first feature film was the Sundance 2005 breakout hit "The Puffy Chair," which went on to win the Audience Award at SXSW and receive two Independent Spirit Award nominations. The film was released theatrically by Roadside Attractions and Netflix in 2006. "Baghead," the brothers' second feature film, was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics at Sundance 2008 for theatrical and DVD release. Fox Searchlight recently released the Duplass Brothers' first studio feature, "Cyrus," starring John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Marisa Tomei, which has garnered rave reviews. Another of their projects "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," starred Jason Segal, Ed Helms, and Susan Sarandon.

In 2014, Jay began his role as Josh Pfefferman in the Amazon Prime Original Comedy-Drama Series, "Transparent," alongside Jeffrey Tambor, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Judith Light. The series was met with widespread critical acclaim, earning 11 Prime-time Emmy nominations, including nominations for Best Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Jeffrey Tambor. In the second season of the show, Duplass' role became more prominent, and he was nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Duplass co-created the HBO comedy-drama series Togetherness (2015–present).
