After a few seasons away from the stage he went back to the boards in 2010 and starred in the Off Broadway showcase of FRICTION. Again, to packed houses a stellar reviews. Film and theater critic Jeffrey Lyons gushed, "Jack Mulcahy is a superb and versatile actor!"

After FRICTION, Jack went on a run of lead roles, starring in five films. One, a slacker comedy "Stuck In The Middle" that took the 2011 film festival circuit by storm, delighting audiences and garnering several four-star reviews. In one review a critic wrote, "The crowd couldn't get enough of him! Jack Mulcahy steals every scene he's in!" Another film just completed is the comedy Reunion 108, a semi-fictional baseball movie in which he plays former Major Leaguer Teddy Mitchell, who has a kinetic personality and is a leader of men.
