BUG

MICHAEL SHANNON grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, and began his professional stage career in Chicago. His first acting role was in "Winterset” at the Illinois Theatre Center. Over the next several years, he continued working on the stage with such companies as Steppenwolf, The Next Lab and A Red Orchid Theatre. He subsequently relocated to London for a year, and performed on stage in London's West End in such productions as "Woyzeck,” "Killer Joe,” and "Bug.” 

While in Chicago, Shannon also kept busy in front of movie and television cameras, most notably in Oliver Stone's WORLD TRADE CENTER. KANGAROO JACK (2003) marked the third Jerry Bruckheimer production in which Shannon has appeared. He also appeared in BAD BOYS II (2003), directed by Michael Bay and starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, and in GRAND THEFT PARSONS (2003), with Johnny Knoxville and Christina Applegate.

Later this year, Shannon headlines SHOTGUN STORIES which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring. Then you will see him in Sydney Lumet's upcoming film, BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD along side Philip Seymour Hoffman, Albert Finney and Ethan Hawke. And he recently worked with Curtin Hanson for a second time in LUCKY YOU. 

His many other credits include THE WOODSMAN, BAD BOYS II, KANGAROO JACK, PEARL HARBOR, VANILLA SKY, 8 MILE, HIGH CRIMES, CECIL B. DEMENTED, TIGERLAND, and CHICAGO CAB, an adaptation of the long-running play, "Hellcab.”
