Biographie

Acting career
Born in Ventura, California, Harris began acting at age six. He appeared in over 100 commercials in the 1970s. In 1979, at the age of 10, Ross landed the role of Joey in the classic comedy feature film Airplane!, notably in a scene with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Ross went on to co-star in the Academy Award-nominated drama Testament as well as roles on The Love Boat, CHiPs, Little House on the Prairie, Hart to Hart, T.J. Hooker and many more.

In March 1985, he replaced Chad Lowe in the starring role on the NBC sitcom Spencer. The show was retooled following Lowe's sudden departure, and returned under the new title Under One Roof. Ross has also been on MTV's Jackass on the segment named "Big Wheel Craze" alongside Dave England.


Music career
Harris was part of the Camarillo, CA, space-age electronic music act Sukia in the '90s. Taking their name from an X-rated Italian comic book of the same name, Sukia was notable for their crazy, often perverse live shows, which sometimes featured a naked saxophone player. Sukia toured the world with acts like Beck, and Stereolab, and subsequently put out one album on the Dust Brothers' fledgling label Nickel Bag Records in 1997. The album, Contacto Espacial con el Tercer Sexo (Space Contact with the Third Sex), was produced by the Dust Brothers and Jerry Finn.

After Sukia dissolved, Harris formed DJ Me DJ You with Sukia cohort Craig Borrell. More sample heavy and straightforward musically than Sukia, DJ Me DJ You relied on sampling from their endless collection of obscure records along with live instrumentation as the basis of their songs. They put out two records, Rainbows and Robots (2000) on Emperor Norton Records and Can You See The Music (2003) on Eenie Meenie Records.

Amidst musical projects, Harris also worked as a music video director and photographer. He directed the music video for Elliott Smith's Academy Award-nominated song "Miss Misery" from the Good Will Hunting soundtrack. Harris was the photographer for Beck's first two albums and performed on them as well, including the Grammy-winning Odelay.

These successes allowed him to begin yet another career as a record producer, recording works for Virgin, Capitol and Polygram. As a remixer he has worked for Beth Orton, Beck, The Dust Brothers, The Prodigy, Fantastic Plastic Machine and many others. His music has been featured on Malcolm in the Middle, Roswell and Kissing Jessica Stein.

As a performer with both Sukia and DJ Me DJ You, he has traveled as far as Moscow and Tokyo to play to a growing underground audience.

2003 saw the release of the feature film, Southlander: Diary of a Desperate Musician in which he both starred and co-wrote with director Steve Hanft. It stars Rory Cochrane from CSI: Miami, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs from Welcome Back Kotter, Laura Prepon from That '70s Show, Beck, Hank Williams III and the final recorded live performance of legendary jazz drummer Billy Higgins.


Current projects
Harris spearheaded the benefit album Dimension Mix, which pays tribute to legendary children's electronic music pioneers Bruce Haack and Esther Nelson. The album was a culmination of over 5 years of work for Ross, who produced and compiled the project. It features a song by Beck which is produced and engineered by Harris. The project also includes songs and remixes by Stereolab, Eels, Money Mark, The Apples in Stereo and many more. All proceeds from the album go towards Cure Autism Now.

Ross is currently working as a director, editor, and director of photography. He has contributed to advertising campaigns for Honda, Acura, Rayban, Levi's and the children's television show Yo Gabba Gabba.


Personal life
Ross is the father of two children and lives in Southern California with his wife.

A twisted mid-'90s comedy disguised as a 1970s drive-in film, Kill the Moonlight is the story of Chance, a fish hatchery worker, toxic waste cleaner and aspiring race car driver, whose goal in life is to fix up his Camaro and follow his dreams of championship glory.

Charles Butler is a world-renowned artist, but behind his macabre and grotesque imagery lies a more brutal truth. Alongside the insane Dr.Garrison and their mutant lackeys, he is kidnapping beautiful models and artists so he can take his art to the next stage, and turn living humans into living paintings. Jason, a young art student realizes this disgusting scheme a little bit too late, as his beloved girlfriend Janet has been kidnapped by Butler and Garrison. As he races to their mansion in the middle of nowhere, stoned and afraid, Butler's last words with the boy echoes in his mind; "Yesterday's nightmare is today's dream and tomorrow's reality."
