Actor, Author, and Environmental Activist

Inspired by the works of his Academy Award-winning father, Ed Begley, Jr. became an actor. He first came to audiences’ attention for his portrayal of Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the long-running hit television series, “St. Elsewhere,” for which he received six Emmy nominations. Since then, Begley has moved easily between feature, television and theatre projects.

Film

Ed can be seen in “Ghostbusters” with Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy and a number of Christopher Guest films, such as “Mascots”, “A Mighty Wind”, “Best In Show,” and “For Your Consideration”. He has also appeared in the Woody Allen movie “Whatever Works” with Larry David, as well as the Seth Rogen/Judd Apatow film, “Pineapple Express”,

Television

On television, Begley can currently be seen on “Better Call Saul” with Bob Odenkirk, “Bunt Talk” with Patrick Stewart and “Lady Dynamite” with Maria Bamford.

Movies

He has starred in two HBO movies: “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight” with Christopher Plummer, Danny Glover and Frank Langella, as well as “Recount” with Kevin Spacey, Tom Wilkinson and Laura Dern. He has also had recurring roles on “Six Feet Under”, “Arrested Development”, and “Portlandia”.

Theater

He starred in David Mamet’s “November” at the Mark Taper Forum, and has appeared in several other works by this amazing playwright: “The Cryptogram,” in Boston, New York and Los Angeles, as well as “Romance”, also at the Mark Taper Forum.

Director

Ed has directed several episodes of the hit show “NYPD Blue” as well as a play that he wrote called “Cesar and Ruben” that won a Nos Otros Award and four Valley Theater League Awards.

Environmentalist

A busy actor, Ed is always on the go, but the environment and bringing awareness to the public is also a huge passion for Ed. Along with his wife Rachelle and daughter Hayden, they created “Living With Ed”, “On Begley Street” and now Begleyesque Podcast.

Strategic Opportunist

He lives in a solar powered home and drives an electric car. “Some would call me an environmentalist. I don’t know why. I reuse the water that falls in my backyard in the winter. I reuse the trash and clippings I produce for mulch. I reuse the rain that falls on my roof, and I reuse the sun that shines on my house for energy. I guess you could call me a strategic opportunist as much as an environmentalist.” Ed Begley, Jr.

Live Simply So That Others Can Simply Live

Ed Begley Jr. offers an inspiring speech on eco-consciousness that has received a standing ovation at over 200 events in just the last four years. Offering an accessible, humorous message on what it means to lead a sustainable life, Begley shares with audiences how he began his four-decade eco-journey in 1970, peppering his talk with funny personal tales (like the first time he tried to compost!).

Living Green

As environmental issues become more pressing, there are two possible responses: forget it and hope that government and corporations will figure it out, or Ed Begley Jr.’ s approach which is to take action and make a difference. In this speech he shares his inspiration and insight into one of the world’s most important causes – environmental sustainability.
