  1. Yeah, he grew up the son of rock's first family, and has lived his life on MTV, but still... you don't know Jack.




    Just three seasons ago Jack leaped into America's living rooms in the role he was born to play: himself. He's the potty-mouthed "every teen" who's charmed audiences with both his maturity and scrappiness, his inbred British articulation and newfound American ways. Born with his parents work ethic, Jack was hard at work scouting bands for record companies and staging showcases while his peers were planning their prom.



    Born November 8, 1985, Jack Osbourne grew up splitting his time between the English countryside, attending proper British schools with his sisters Aimee and Kelly, and hotel rooms and concert tour buses with his parents. In 1997, after an astounding coup led the first Ozzfest to the top of the concert revenue charts, the Osbourne clan, including 11-year-old Jack, moved to Beverly Hills to be closer to work. In 1999, the fourth successful year of Ozzfest, Sharon enlisted Jack to pick emerging artists for the second stage. Word of Jack's musical intuition spread and he soon had an offer interning at Virgin Records and eventually a job as a junior talent scout at Epic Records. At the age of fifteen Jack was suddenly on the payroll of a respected record company, scouring L.A. clubs for new talent for two years.



    But don't think that work ethic has diminished. Since the Osbournes phenomenon exploded, Jack has had cameos on "Dawson's Creek," "That '70s Show," and "MAD TV." Displaying his trademark wit and irony, Jack became a favorite target for Ashton Kutscher's hit series "Punk'd." Feature films also beckoned, with an appearance in Austin Powers: Goldmember and a featured role in New York Minute as a party animal, hot shot wanna-be band manager, a role he was uniquely suited to play.



    However, high profile triumphs over alcohol and drug addiction offered their own dose of reality. True to that Osbourne work ethic, Jack's will to get and stay sober triumphed. Clean and sober for over a year, Jack volunteers his time traveling the country to speak honestly with young people about alcohol and drug abuse.



    If reality TV introduced the world to Jack, reality seems to have offered Jack his most creative outlets. Jack's very own series "Union Jack" premiered on the UK's Channel 4 to rave reviews. The show chronicles Jack as an Englishman in the US, interviewing celebrities and enjoying the nightlife. Additionally, Jack interviewed his sister Kelly about drug abuse, addiction and growing up famous for the highly respected ITV program Tonight with Trevor McDonald in the UK that proved once and for all that Jack had found a unique outlet for his particular brand of Osbourne creativity -- and the critics agreed.



    These days Jack Osbourne still enjoys spending time with family, hanging out with his friends, and making an impact on impressionable teenagers who might be heading down the rabbit hole of addiction. He still loves music and discovering new bands. He's also enjoying just being 18, looking for a home of his own and piloting his own course, his own way.
