CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS

Actor/writer/comedian BILL HADER (Flint Lockwood) is in his fourth season as a regular cast member on NBC's venerable comedy institution "Saturday Night Live” and is segueing into the feature film world with an impressive list of credits under his belt. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Hader made an early splash on "SNL,” with his uncanny impressions including, most notably, Al Pacino and Vincent Price (hosting macabre holiday specials).

Last year proved to be a very busy and successful year for Hader. It started with his role as Jason Segel's compassionate yet comedic step-brother in the box-office surprise hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The summer of 2008 also saw Hader in a memorable cameo role in the action/comedy Pineapple Express.

Most recently, Hader reunited with Ben Stiller for the worldwide hit, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. The film has taken in over $375 million worldwide. He also appeared in Miramax's Adventureland, reuniting Hader with his Superbad director, Greg Mottola.

Last year, Hader appeared in the summer blockbuster comedy Tropic Thunder as the insecure studio executive Rob Slolom who has to contend with the antics of Tom Cruise's crazed studio head character, Les Grossman. Released last August and nominated Best Comedy for this year's BFCA Critics' Choice Awards, the film was directed and written by Ben Stiller, who also starred in the film. Tropic Thunder opened #1 on the box office for two weeks in a row and earned over $110 million domestically. Hader was joined by Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Jay Baruchel, Brandon T. Jackson and Matthew McConaughey to earn Best Ensemble Cast by the 2008 Boston Society of Film Critics Awards. 

Hader had a full slate of film work in the summer of 2007 that began with a role in Judd Apatow's box-office hit and critically-acclaimed Knocked Up which grossed over $140 million domestically. Hader immediately followed this up with a performance in another Apatow release as a wayward policeman opposite Seth Rogen in Superbad for Columbia Pictures which has grossed over $120 million domestically. Other film credits for Hader include You, Me, and Dupree, Hot Rod and Pineapple Express. 

Hader is currently working on the sequel Hoodwinked 2: Hood vs. Evil where he will again voice Hansel. The film is set to release in 2010. 

A Second City Los Angeles alum, Hader currently lives in New York with his wife, filmmaker Maggie Carey.
