The New York Times has called JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS (Marty) "one of the most skilled actors of his generation.” An incredibly diverse artist, audiences are often surprised by his chameleon-like character changes. The guy who played David Letterman in the highly acclaimed HBO film The Late Shift is indeed the same guy who played the flamboyantly gay Shih Tzu handler Scott Donlon in Christopher Guest's blockbuster comedy Best in Show.

Higgins has recently finished principal photography on Warner Bros.' Joe Claus, for director David Dobkin, co-starring Vince Vaughn, Kevin Spacey and Dame Judi Dench.

Last summer, he starred in Universal Pictures' The Break-Up, with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston; last fall, he was part of the ensemble in Warner Independent's For Your Consideration, the latest Christopher Guest film.

He recently starred in Sony's Fun With Dick and Jane, opposite Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni. In addition to co-starring in Christopher Guest's comic triumph A Mighty Wind, Higgins also wrote the razor-sharp parody songs and created the complex vocal and instrumental arrangements for the film and the bestselling soundtrack.

In addition to his film work, Higgins has starred in the title role of the Lincoln Center/Broadway premiere of the A.R. Gurney play Big Bill, a searing drama about the fall from grace of the great American tennis champion Bill Tilden—a role Higgins reprised from his Williamstown Theatre Festival triumph, where he is a popular fixture. Higgins also provides countless over-the-top voices for Cartoon Network's Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and for Fox's CGI animated show Game Over.

In Los Angeles, Higgins is a much sought-after actor for regular roles on pilots, as well as guest-starring roles on various series—such as his recurring role on Fox's recent comedy, the critically acclaimed Arrested Development.
