Josh Randall is an American actor best known for his roles on Ed, Scrubs, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


Randall was born in Pacific Grove, CA, on January 27, 1972. In 1997, his father, a Chemistry and Physics teacher at Monterey High School, died of colon cancer and was subsequently commemorated by having the gymnasium at Monterey High School named after him. Coincidentally, the gym was where Randall, attending Monterey High School, played basketball. Randall was also co-editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, The Galleon, during his senior year. His mother, Sharon, worked as a syndicated columnist. Randall later pursued an acting career.
