Josh Radnor plays the central character on the CBS Emmy-nominated series "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER," but Radnor's talent extends beyond acting as he has established himself as a both gifted writer and director.

This year Radnor wrote, directed and starred in his first feature film, "Happythankyoumoreplease." The film debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won the audience award for favorite U.S. drama as chosen by Sundance fans. The film will be released by Hannover House and opened exclusively in New York in summer 2010. Additionally, his untitled memoir will be published by Simon & Schuster this year.

 

On the stage, Radnor appeared in several Off-Broadway plays at the Vineyard Theater, Manhattan Theater Club and the Blue Light Theater Company. He made his Broadway debut as the title character in "The Graduate" opposite Kathleen Turner and Alicia Silverstone. Additionally, Radnor starred on stage in writer Joe Gilford's play, "Finks," at the Powerhouse Theatre, which was staged on the grounds of Vassar College.

Feature film credits include "Not Another Teen Movie." He has also had numerous guest starring roles on the small screen, including "Judging Amy," "Welcome to NY," "Miss Match," "ER," "Six Feet Under" and "Law & Order." He was a series regular on "The Court." 

Radnor was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. He began acting in high school when he auditioned on a whim and landed one of the leading roles in the musical "Oklahoma!" He later attended Kenyon College, where he won the Paul Newman Acting Trophy. After college, he moved to New York, where he received his Masters of Fine Arts in acting from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
