Actor-comedian Jamie Kennedy joins ALA Graphics’ READ Poster Series

CHICAGO – ALA Graphics is proud to announce that stand-up comedian and actor Jamie Kennedy is the latest celebrity to pose for the Celebrity READ Poster Series.

Kennedy is well known for his madcap TV and movie roles. He triumphed on the WB Network with his creation of the wildly popular “Jamie Kennedy Experiment” and skyrocketed to fame in Wes Craven's “Scream” and “Scream 2.” He also starred in and co-wrote “Malibu's Most Wanted.”

Kennedy's dynamic and offbeat sensibility comes to life in his Celebrity READ poster, that features him holding his favorite book, “Where the Wild Things Are.” His most recent films include the animated feature “Robots” and “The Son of the Mask.” Kennedy resides in Los Angeles.

The Jamie Kennedy Poster is the latest addition to the READ Poster Series. Kennedy joins celebrities such as Orlando Bloom, Serena Williams and Yo-Yo Ma. His poster is available at the ALA Store's Web site at or by calling 866-746-7252.
