Hailing from a small town outside of Detroit, Michigan, DAX SHEPARD (Carl)
honed his skills as an actor and comedian with the much-celebrated improv troupe The
Groundlings, while earning an anthropology degree from UCLA. Shortly thereafter, he
found himself in the spotlight when he landed a role as himself in the inaugural season of
MTV's wildly popular celebrity-prank series Punk'd. As the show's original master of
disguise, he created a barrage of characters in an effort to disguise himself to the
audience, and the show's increasingly savvy celebrity targets.
Last year, Shepard was seen in Mike Judge's Idiocracy, opposite Luke Wilson
and Maya Rudolph, as well as starring alongside Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson in the
Lionsgate comedy Employee of the Month. Most recently, Shepard starred in the
Universal Pictures' comedy Let's Go to Prison, sharing the screen with Will Arnett for
director Bob Odenkirk. Previous films for Shepard include Jon Favreau's fantasy family
feature Zathura: A Space Adventure and Paramount Pictures' Without a Paddle, opposite
Seth Green and Matthew Lillard.
Shepard will next be seen in the dark comedy Smother, opposite Liv Tyler and
Shepard currently resides in Los Angeles.
