Luka Jones stars in "Best Friends Forever" on NBC as Joe, Lennon's (Lennon Parham) laid-back live-in boyfriend. Jones replaced Adam Pally, who played the role in the pilot but is committed to the second season of ABC's comedy "Happy Endings."

A member of the Upright Citizen Brigade comedy troupe, Luka Jones grew up in the Chicago and Denver metro areas. He forms relatively strong emotional attachments to sports teams, especially the men's basketball team of his undergraduate alma mater, the Kansas Jayhawks. He has trained at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City, Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, iO West, and UCBTLA. He has performed comedy at iO West, UCBTLA, The Hollywood Improv, and other venues throughout the Los Angeles area.

Currently, Luka is a member of the UCB Harold team John Velvet. He also regularly performs standup comedy around town. When not doing comedy, he is pursuing his PhD in philosophy. He enjoys trying to find a balance between the analytic mindset of philosophy and the Don't Think approach to long-form improv.
