Jay Huguley is an American TV and film actor who engaged grapevine pr's services pr in 2012 as his first publicist. Prior to this, Jay was best known for solid recurring roles on shows such as “Brothers & Sisters,” “Summerland,” and “The Young and the Restless,” as well as appearances on a number of other series, including “Cold Case,” “Alias,” “Medium,” “Drop Dead Diva,” “Breaking In” and “Army Wives.” He had achieved a limited amount of press around his career, and enlisted the services of grapevine to create brand awareness.
Over the next couple of years, grapevine pr worked to generate much more significant and copious press coverage about Jay, leveraging his television and film performances to garner photo spreads, cover stories and feature interviews in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post and VULKAN Magazine; in regional consumer publications such as 201 Magazine and The Record; and interview segments on CNN/HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight” and Maria Menounos’ “AfterBuzz TV,” as well as on ABC and FOX affiliates. We also helped him to cultivate an online profile through the use of social media marketing, encouraging the growth of his fanbase and digital footprint.
As his profile grew, he began earning even larger roles in films such as the Oscar-winning (“Best Picture”) 12 Years A Slave; a lead role in the indie darling Sunny in the Dark (for which he took home an award for “Best Actor” from the Northeast Film Festival); the horror film, Abattoir, from the creator of the Saw franchise; and Heart, Baby; as well as recurring roles on some of the highest-rated television shows, including AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and HBO’s “True Detective.”
His elevated celebrity profile now consistently earns him coverage based solely on his name recognition and brand alone in leading entertainment industry publications such as Deadline and others.
