Biography[edit]

Mikey Post was born in Columbus, Ohio, but soon after his birth he and his family moved to Roswell, Georgia, where he lived for most of his life. He attended a Performing Arts School North Springs High School, studying different acting techniques and performing in numerous plays. After high school, he attended the University of Georgia (UGA) and received his bachelors degree in Management Information Systems Technology. In 2013, Mikey announced via his Facebook fan page that he was struggling with his health after being diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).

Career[edit]

While attending UGA, Mikey auditioned for commercials and movies in between his studies. Through his Atlanta-based talent agent, The People Store, Mikey booked a minor role in the movie Black Knight. While the role Mikey auditioned for was only a bit part, Martin Lawrence and the director Gil Junger decided they wanted to feature Mikey more throughout the film. Although the role was a small one, it helped jumpstart Mikey's career. After graduating college, Mikey moved to Hollywood, California. Mikey has since then appeared in various feature films and also played the role of Wicket for the Star Wars nationwide tour in 2006 and in the Rose Parade on New Year's Day 2007. He was most recently seen in national commercials for Radio Shack (as Gumdrop the elf), Big Lots (as the Big Lots Spokes Elf), and Go Daddy. He most notably appears in the movie Bedtime Stories, starring Adam Sandler & Keri Russell, where he plays the Angry Dwarf.
