About Jesse Ventura (1951 – )

Jesse Ventura was born in 1951 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ventura had a career as a professional wrestler. His wrestling motto was "Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat." A blood clot in his lung was the occasion for retirement.

He then gave memorable tough guy performances in action films such as THE RUNNING MAN and PREDATOR, with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Ventura starred in the Sci-Fi action movie ABRAXAS, GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE, in 1990.

Jesse Ventura was an ensemble player in THUNDERGROUND, DEMOLITION MAN, and BATMAN & ROBIN, all with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also was a cast member of REPOSSESSED, RICOCHET, and THE MASTER OF DISGUISE.

In 1990, Jesse Ventura was elected Mayor of Brooklyn Park, MN, a suburb of Minneapolis. In 1998, he was elected Governor of the State of Minnesota, and served until 2003.

During his stint as governor, he was criticized for cashing in on his office, with the publication of several books, as well as appearances in the media as a football analyst and a televised wrestling match.

Jesse Ventura was a Harvard University visiting fellow at the Kennedy School of Government in 2004.

Jesse Ventura began working on his show, CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA, which has run for two seasons.
