J. LaRose was born in Northern California, raised in Chicago and then moved to Florida before deciding he wanted to act professionally. It took him many years of working in a corporate world to realize that he wasn't cut out for the 9-5 grind. After making that fateful decision to get into this business, he took on as much training as possible, performing in local theatre, taking some commercial work, and landing roles in a few independent films and TV shows. While auditioning for a short film, LaRose met Darren Lynn Bousman, who cast J as the lead in his short. They have since worked together on several projects. J's appearance in SAW 3 marks his major feature film debut, and although his performance may be described as a bloody mess, he'll take that as a compliment. He is married to his beautiful wife Toni with whom he has two wonderful children, Jordan and Christine.
