Jay Duplass

Lawrence Jay Duplass (born March 7, 1973) is an American film director. He is best known for his debut film The Puffy Chair and most recent films Baghead and Jeff, Who Lives at Home. His brother, Mark Duplass, has worked with him on both films. Duplass was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was raised in a Catholic family, and attended Jesuit High School. Duplass attributes much of his and his brother's love for film to his appreciation for Raising Arizona. In an interview with Robert K. Elder for The Film That Changed My Life, Duplass speculates on what might have happened had he not seen the film in his youth. I probably wouldn’t be making movies—seriously. It held over for so long. It really was the root of everything that Mark and I always hold ourselves to in making movies. That is to say that Raising Arizona is the most inspired movie that I have ever seen.
