FRED CLAUS

JOHN MICHAEL HIGGINS (Willie) is known for his chameleon-like ability to play a wide range of diverse characters. Many remember his turn as David Letterman in the highly acclaimed HBO film "The Late Shift.” He later gained attention for his performance as the flamboyant Shih Tzu handler, Scott Donlon, in Christopher Guest's hit ensemble comedy "Best in Show.”

Higgins' more recent feature film credits include "Evan Almighty,” opposite Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman; "The Break-Up,” with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston; "Fun with Dick and Jane,” starring Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni; and "Blade: Trinity,” with Wesley Snipes.

In addition to his film work, Higgins is a familiar face on television. On the heels of his recurring role on Fox's critically acclaimed series "Arrested Development,” the creator of that show, Mitch Hurwitz, wrote an ABC pilot called "The Thick of It,” with Higgins in mind as the male lead.

Higgins has several films upcoming. He will next be seen in the comedy feature "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” from writer-producers Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow. He also just completed work on a starring role in the film "Still Waiting,” in which he co-stars with Justin Long. Later this fall, he begins filming on the comedy "Yes Man,” in which he co-stars with Jim Carrey under the direction of Peyton Reed.
