Ted Raimi 
 
The youngest of the Raimi brothers, Ted began acting at an early age as an extra and a "Fake Shemp" in the movies they produced. He was only twelve years old when they filmed "The Evil Dead" but he appeared in the film - but only by a foot.  Okay, well feet.  A natural entertainer, he practiced his skills by amusing his family and as a deejay in high school.  

Ted has appeared in a wide variety of films, including starring roles in "Lunatics: A Love Story" and "Skinner." He has had many minor roles, as in "Patriot Games" with Harrison Ford, where he played a CIA analyst. He reportedly enjoys playing villains or out of the ordinary characters because he likes the challenge, while at the same time he clearly has a talent for physical comedy. Many of his fans affectionately refer to him as "the Chameleon" because of his great range of facial expressions.  

He is most widely known for his recurring roles on seaQuest DSV and Xena: Warrior Princess. In seaQuest DSV, (later known as seaQuest 2032), Ted appeared as Lt. Timothy O'Neill, a shy but intelligent and surprisingly multi-lingual communications officer. In Xena: Warrior Princess, Ted frequently guest-stars as Joxer, the bumbling wannabe warrior who usually manages to complicate life for Xena and Gabrielle in some amusing way. He has also crossed over to Hercules: The Legendary Journeys with the Joxer character, and has played not only Joxer's evil twin brother, Jett the King of Assassins, but also an "alternative universe" Joxer with a rather rebellious spirit.  

In addition to his busy and varied acting career, Ted is a screenwriter. He wrote the script for the seaQuest episode "Lostland" and is said to be working on more writing projects. He was recently reported to be executive-producing a new series for MTV called "Normal Joe" and says he expects to be in "Jack of All Trades" which is airing now as part of the Back to Back Action line-up.
