JON FAVREAU (Denver) is a true multi-hyphenate. After getting his break as an actor in "Rudy,” Favreau went on to establish himself as a writer of considerable talent with the acclaimed hipster comedy "Swingers,” in which he also starred, and has continued to challenge himself with a variety of projects.

His most recent success as a director is the blockbuster action adventure hit "Iron Man,” starring Robert Downey Jr. Prior to that, he directed "Zathura,” a children's adventure film starring Tim Robbins, and, in 2003, he directed the acclaimed holiday smash hit "Elf,” starring Will Ferrell. Favreau made his feature film directorial debut with "Made,” from a script he wrote. He also starred in the film, opposite Vince Vaughn and Sean Combs.

In front of the camera, Favreau was most recently seen opposite Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston in the comedy "The Break-Up.” He was also seen in "Wimbledon,” alongside Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany; "Something's Gotta Give”; the Mark Steven Johnson film "Daredevil,” with Ben Affleck, an adaptation of the Marvel Comics franchise; and in the title role of legendary heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano in the biopic "Rocky Marciano.”

Favreau's additional film credits include "Love and Sex,” opposite Famke Janssen; "The Replacements,” with Keanu Reeves; "Very Bad Things,” opposite Christian Slater and Cameron Diaz; and "Deep Impact,” with Robert Duvall, Morgan Freeman and Vanessa Redgrave.

His television credits include a recurring role on "Friends” and a special appearance on HBO's critically acclaimed "The Sopranos,” playing himself. Favreau also added the title of show-runner to his list of credits as the creator, producer and host of the Emmy-nominated IFC series "Dinner for Five.”

Among his upcoming projects is the John Hamburg comedy "I Love You, Man,” set for a January 2009 release. He is currently in production on the comedy "Couples Retreat,” in which he will star with Vince Vaughn. Favreau is also in pre-production on the much anticipated sequel to "Iron Man.”
