RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS

STEVE ZAHN (Ray) is a multi-talented actor with extensive credits in quality productions on stage and screen.

He recently starred in the comedies "Saving Silverman" and "Happy, Texas," which premiered at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and earned Zahn not only a Grand Jury Special Actor Award but also an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor for his performance. Zahn recently provided his voice talent in "Dr. Dolittle 2." He also stars in the feature film "Joy Ride."

Other feature film credits include Zahn's critically acclaimed role in "Out of Sight," based on Elmore Leonard's best-selling novel, starring George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez; "Stuart Little" (voice); "Hamlet," opposite Ethan Hawke; "The Object of My Affection," with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd; the feature adaptation of Eric Bogosian's play "subUrbia," reprising the role he created in the off-Broadway production; and "Crimson Tide."

Zahn also starred in Tom Hanks' directorial debut, "That Thing You Do!," as Lenny, the lead guitarist for "The Wonders," a struggling band whose rise to fame is chronicled after they release a Top 40 hit single.

A native of Marshall, MN, Zahn was first introduced to improvisational theater in high school. After completing his freshman year at Gustavus-Adolphus College in Minnesota, he crashed the audition of a local production of "Biloxi Blues," winning the leading role in the play.

Following his debut, he trained for two years at the prestigious American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., before moving to New York and being cast in Tommy Tune's National Tour of "Bye Bye Birdie," traveling with the show for three months. At the end of that tour, Zahn was cast opposite Ethan Hawke in "Sophistry" at the renowned Playwright's Horizon. There, he caught the eye of director Ben Stiller, who cast him in his feature film "Reality Bites," also starring Hawke.
