Stephen Schneider stars as Rav, Jessica (Jessica St. Clair) and Lennon's (Lennon Parham) attractive best guy friend from college who - may or may not - still have feelings for Jessica, in NBC's new comedy "Best Friends Forever."
After Schneider graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, he wrote and directed his first feature film "Puberty: The Movie," starring David Wain, Joe Lo Truglio and Amy Sedaris. He then launched the sketch comedy website "thebsquad," featuring original sketches in which he performed and wrote. Several of his sketches have been featured in festivals, on television and on the home pages of Gawker, Break and Funny or Die. Schneider went on to work as a writer and correspondent for "InfoMania," a comedic news show.
Schneider recently wrote, produced and starred in the award-winning feature film "The Funniest Movie Ever," directed by Eric Ledgin, where he stars as wannabe stand-up comic Steve Deeds who's trying to make it big in the City of Angels. The film is currently touring the festival circuit. Schneider also will be featured in the upcoming film "Bert and Arnie's Guide to Friendship," directed by Jeff Kaplan.
Schneider currently lives in Los Angeles. He spends most of his free time with his dog, Stoli. They both love playing frisbee, eating treats and dancing to Motown music.
