 personal life
Nemec's mother was a graphic artist as well as a painter, writer and poet. His father, Joseph Charles Nemec III, worked in the film industry as a set designer and production designer. His grandmother, Nancy Reed, nicknamed him "Corky".

He is still close friends with fellow late-1980s teen heartthrobs and rappers Brian Austin Green and David Faustino of Married... with Children fame, the latter with whom he has a production company and is currently costarring in Star-ving, a webseries spoofing HBO's Entourage and airing on Crackle. He enjoys reading non-fiction and listening to instrumental East Indian music.

According to the Scientology community web site and Nemec's personal web site, he is a member of the Church.

According to the website for Perfect Union Lodge #10 in San Antonio, Texas, Joseph C. Nemec IV is also a Master Mason of the Freemasonic Order, having joined the Lodge in 2000. He is credited with a documentary video detailing the hidden geometric meaning of the Master Mason's Apron for the Grand Lodge of Texas in early 2002.

Nemec was inspired to become an actor after watching the children's film The Goonies at the age of 13, for which his father had done the art direction. He also cites his parents' artistic professions as a major influence, and that acting "seemed the right thing to do". Nemec began training with the Centre Stage LA theatre company and signed on with an agent after performing in one of their talent showcases. He was booked for several commercials such as Suzuki and eventually landed a guest-spot on the TV show Sidekicks starring Ernie Reyes, Jr., with whom Nemec is still friends today. His first major film role was Tucker: The Man and His Dream in 1988. He appeared in several TV shows, earning an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Steven Stayner in the television film I Know My First Name Is Steven, and made his most notable and thus far successful series role as the lead of the quirky TV series Parker Lewis Can't Lose (1990–1993).

During the 1990s, Nemec had a brief foray into hip-hop, recording an entire album with the group Starship of Foolz (one of the members was Shane Mooney, son of comedian Paul Mooney, developed by Matt Robinson and Dedra Tate, and produced by actor Balthazar Getty.

Nemec was involved with the American Repertory Company in Los Angeles in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

He became a series regular in the science fiction TV series Stargate SG-1 in the show's sixth season (2002–2003), playing the alien Jonas Quinn, also appearing in the show's fifth and seventh seasons. He pitched several episodes to the Stargate producers and wrote the season 7 episode "Fallout".

Currently he is collaborating with David Faustino in the satiric webcast Star-ving and was recently seen in the Season 6 première of Supernatural.
