Robert James "Rob" Ramsay (born September 2, 1986) is a Canadian actor.[1] Rob is best known for his role as Donnie Schrab in Blue Mountain State,[2] Percy Budnick in Aaron Stone,[3] Barnabis in XIII: The Series[4] and Jay Jay in Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans.[5]

Personal life[edit]

'Rob' Ramsay was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He grew up in both Toronto and Saint John, New Brunswick. In his youth he performed in countless plays and musicals as well as playing for several football teams in Toronto. These two passions never mixed until a casting director came to practice scouting football players to be in a movie called ‘It's a Boy Girl Thing’.[6] On set, Rob was approached by the director who cast him in his first role.

Ramsay studied dramatic arts at Acadia University while simultaneously appearing on Disney’s ‘Aaron Stone’,[7]Pure Pwnage[8] and ‘The Jon Dore Show[9] for the Comedy Network.

Ramsay graduated in 2010 as the valedictorian of Acadia University and was accepted to the New School of Drama in New York City. He eventually had to turn this opportunity down because he was cast as ‘Donnie’,[10] the lovable lineman in the football comedy ‘Blue Mountain State’.[11]

In 2011, Ramsay was cast as the lead in ‘Patchtown’;[12] a satirical, dark comedic short about “oppression, consumerism and a culture of discarded love”. The film garnered high praise at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Cannes Film Festival, The Palm Springs International Film Festival and several others. Production wrapped on a feature film version of the same story in 2013.

In 2014, Rob and the rest of the cast of Blue Mountain State[11] raised 1.9 million on Kickstarter to make ‘Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland’.[13] Production started in November the same year.
