ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS THE SEQUEAKQUEL

DAVID CROSS (Ian), who hails from Atlanta, Georgia, made his way to Boston to study film at Emerson College, but quickly dropped out and started doing stand-up comedy full time. He moved to Los Angeles to write on "The Ben Stiller Show,” where he shared the "posthumous” Emmy (it was given after the show was canceled) with the show's other writers.

Continuing in the sketch tradition, he created (along with Bob Odenkirk) the groundbreaking show for HBO, "Mr. Show with Bob & David.” The series ran for four years and garnered several Emmy nominations. He has also released two comedy CDs on the Subpop label, "Shut Up You F…..g Baby” and "It's Not Funny.” "Shut Up...” was nominated for a Grammy Award. Both continue to sell exceptionally well and have received rave reviews.

Cross appeared in the films "Men in Black,” "Men in Black II,” "Waiting for Guffman,” "Ghost World,” "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” "School for Scoundrels” and "Curious George.” Most recently he appeared in Todd Haynes' rumination on the life of Bob Dylan, "I'm Not There,” which won a Spirit Award, and in Twentieth Century Fox's blockbuster comedy "Alvin and The Chipmunks.” More recently, he had a role in the comedy "Year One” directed by Harold Ramis.

On television, Cross appeared in the Emmy-winning comedy, "Arrested Development,” as Tobias Fünke. Most recently, he wrote, produced and starred in the Comedy Central animated series "Freak Show,” which was co-created by Cross and Jon Benjamin, and he will be shooting "Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” for Channel 4 in London.

Cross's book I Drink for a Reason was published earlier this year.
