Biography
Since declaring his aspirations to become an actor at the age of three, Jake Richardson has been on Hollywood's fast track to stardom.  Jake can currently be seen in the new movies "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back," and the upcoming feature film "Hangman's Curse."

Jake can also be seen in the leading role of Wade in the new Jodie Foster produced movie, "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys," opposite Jodie Foster and Jena Malone.  He also plays a lead role in the Wonderful World Of Disney telefilm "Toothless" with Kirstie Alley and Ross Malinger, directed by Melanie Mayron.  Previously he had starring roles in the TV movies "Fudge-A-Mania" and "Problem Child III: Junior In Love," and made guest appearances on "7th Heaven," "C-16," "The Nanny" and "Hearts Afire."

Perhaps best known for his series regular role as Peter on the popular ABC series "Fudge," Jake has also starred as Mitch in Walt Disney Pictures' "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" and as Reggie Van Dough in the Warner Home Video family comedy "Richie Rich's Christmas Wish."  He also played Derek in the independent film "Little Cobras," which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jake's talents have been utilized off-camera as well.  He created the voices for the animated series "Duckman" and "Real Monsters," and brought the immortal "Peanuts" cartoon character Pig Pen to life in a well-received series of commercials for Regina Vacuums.  Most recently, Jake voiced the role of Cucko in Disney's "Recess" and Junior in "Psycho Ferret."  He enjoys voice-over work because "you don't have to get into hair and make up, and you can even wear your own clothes!"

Famous for keeping fellow cast members laughing with his own unique brand of stand-up comedy, Jake is an athletic 20-year-old who loves snow boarding, skate boarding, and surfing.  He's a fan of alternative, punk, swing, and oldies music, and admires such actors as Denzel Washington, Joe Pesci, Tom Hanks, Angelina Jolie and Kate Hudson.  Jake would love to meet Jay Leno someday and talk to him about vintage cars; Jake wants his opinion on what he should buy for a restoring project.  He also recently fulfilled one of his dreams of working with Kevin Smith, director of "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back." 

Jake lives in Los Angeles with his parents, Tim and Chris, and older brothers, Justin and Dana.
