John C. Reilly
Versatile actor John C. Reilly went from being our favorite â€˜that guyâ€™ to a household name with 2007â€™s comedy Walk Hard: The Legend of Dewey Cox. John Christopher Reilly, born on May 24, 1965, in Chicago, studied musical theater at DePaul University. He made his film debut in 1989â€™s Casualties of War, which starred Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox. Director Brian De Palma was so impressed with Johnâ€™s performance that he recast him in a more prominent role during the filmâ€™s production. John has appeared in more than 50 films since then; some of his standout performances include porn star Reed Rothchild in Boogie Nights, doomed fisherman Dale 'Murph' Murphy in The Perfect Storm, and Renee Zellwegerâ€™s â€˜cellophaneâ€™ husband in the musical Chicago, which earned John an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 2003. John teamed up with Will Ferrell for 2006â€™s Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and is joining him again in Step Brothers.
