Filmmaker JAY ROACH (Director / Producer) has garnered a reputation as one of Hollywood's producer/directors with a magic comedic touch, having helmed a string of very funny and successful hits. Roach marked his directorial debut with the 1997 box office hit Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, starring Mike Myers, following that with the blockbuster sequels Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Austin Powers in Goldmember, with Myers twice reprising his role as the titular swinging spy.

In between the second and third Austin Powers movies, Roach directed and produced the original worldwide success Meet the Parents, which went on to gross more than $300 million globally. Prior to Parents, he also directed the wry and touching Mystery, Alaska, written by David E. Kelly & Sean O'Byrne and starring an ensemble cast toplined by Russell Crowe.

A graduate of Stanford University, Roach received his Master's degree in film production from the University of Southern California. While at USC, his short subject film Asleep at the Wheel was nominated for a student academy award.

Roach is President of Everyman Pictures, which is currently in post-production on the big screen adaptation of Douglas Adams' popular The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, with Roach serving as producer. He served as executive producer on the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrrymore hit 50 First Dates. Roach also served as associate producer and wrote the story for the action-thriller Blown Away, starring Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones. Additional credits include producing the provocative feature film The Empty Mirror and executive-producing the political reality series American Candidate. Future projects include producing and directing the features Elling, Used Guys and Saints and Sinners.
