Jay Thomas Fox is an American actor, proud father, and quintessential Renaissance man, i.e., coach, entrepreneur, fitness/nutrition expert, rainmaker, recruiter, and wrestler. He has enjoyed leading and supporting roles in TV shows, multi-award-winning film productions, and commercials.
Most notably, Jay performed as John Du Pont in Investigation Discovery's TV series, 'Guilty Rich - Deadly Delusions' (S1:E3) which premiered in the U.S., Canada, and Europe on September 14th, 2017. The episode portrayed a downward spiral of the multi-millionaire, his 'Foxcatcher' wrestling team, and the ultimate murder of Olympic Gold Medalist, Dave Schultz. Moreover, Jay played Captain O'Donnell in the award-winning psychological thriller, 'Disposable' which made the final round at the 2017 Hoboken International Film Festival (considered "a top-10 worldwide" by Fox & Time Warner) - and won 'Best Thriller' at the Buffalo Niagara IFF.
Jay's brush with acting predates decades ago: A casting finalist as co-lead in 'The Blue Lagoon' (1980), directed by Randal Kleiser (Grease, White Fang, et al.); featured in the opening scene of Savage Steve Holland's, 'One Crazy Summer' (1984); and even a print model in his 20s... As his body of work continues to grow, Jay projects a "magnum opus mindset" into each new production. When asked how you became an actor, he quips, "Being smack-dab-in-the-middle of nine siblings hardwired me to handle just about anything."
His entrepreneurial ventures include sales, recruiting, and burning the midnight oil developing cutting-edge software that dovetails into these entities. When not with family, onset, or architecting tomorrow's technologies, he is likely on a wrestling mat somewhere. Defying his age, Jay is one of the oldest 'open tournament' amateur wrestlers in North America. A touted coach from K-12 to college to professional MMA athletes, and versed in Folk (Collegiate), Freestyle, and Greco Roman, Jay is considered an ambassador to arguably the toughest sport on the planet.
