Carrie Keagan Biography 1980-
It takes a lot for a buxom blonde to stand out in Hollywood, but Carrie Keagan has been doing just that since 2007 when she was invited to join No Good TV, a web-based production company launched by internet entrepreneurs Kourosh Taj and Jay Vir.
“I came in sort of towards the beginning and we put this whole thing together because we wanted to see something different,” she explains. “We all got bored watching the same interview over and over again, and we wanted to see a different side of people and see a more fun, less stalkerish type of thing.”
Taj and Vir wisely made Carrie the face of their burgeoning business and, within a matter of months, her raunchy celebrity interviews had been viewed over 130 million times on YouTube. Even mainstream publications like TV Guide gave NGTV a nod of approval when they nominated Carrie’s signature series, In Bed with Carrie, for top honors in inaugural Online Video Awards later that year. “It just proved that there was an audience out there craving [our] kind of uncensored, just no-holds-barred entertainment,” she says.
Of course, not everyone was impressed with the site’s uncensored approach. “It took a minute for my mom to get used to hearing me say f*ck all the time,” Carrie admits. “She still says things to me every once in a while, but honestly I got my personality from my parents. I wouldn’t have the personality that I have now if it wasn’t for them.”
Carrie’s colorful personality has since been on display in more than 4,000 celebrity interviews. She’s sat down with Oscar-winners like Denzel Washington, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Costner, George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Robin Williams, and she’s also had tete-a-tetes with A-list celebs like Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, Snoop Dogg, and Johnny Depp. Carrie even swapped spit with Jimmy Fallon during an especially memorable segment. “It’s [been a] pleasure hanging out with some of the biggest celebrities on the planet,” she says. “I love breaking down the walls to bring fans closer to their favorite stars!”
Carrie’s gig as a celebrity interviewer has turned her into something of a celebrity herself. She was named Playboy’s Babe of the Month in July 2008, and her notoriety has led to cameos in Superbad, Dance of the Dead (2008), Miss March (2009), The Hangover (2009), Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball (2010), and American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009). Carrie also appeared in five episodes of Reno 911! in 2008 as a busty stripper named Frosty.
In addition to her ongoing work on NGTV, Carrie can be seen next in Father vs. Son (2010), a big screen comedy about a newly divorced man who moves in with his son and joins him on the singles scene. The eagerly anticipated film costars Paul Wolff and Josh Dean.
