Hailing from a small town outside of Detroit, DAX SHEPARD 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.

In 2006, Shepard was seen in Mike Judge's IDIOCRACY opposite Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph, and also starred in the Lionsgate comedy EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH. In 2008, Shepard appeared in the Universal Pictures comedy BABY MAMA as Amy Poehler's loser boyfriend, Carl. Previous films for Shepard include director Bob Odenkirk's comedy LET'S GO TO PRISON (2006), Jon Favreau's fantasy family feature ZATHURA: A SPACE ADVENTURE (2005), and Paramount Pictures' WITHOUT A PADDLE (2004), opposite Seth Green and Matthew Lillard. Shepard also co-starred in Katie Aselton's acclaimed indie rule-bending comedy THE FREEBIE (2010), which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Shepard is currently starring as Crosby Braverman in the NBC drama "Parenthood," which recently wrapped up its third season.

Most recently, Shepard has taken to writing and directing his own features including the 2010 comedy BROTHER'S JUSTICE, which premiered at the Austin Film Festival and was the recipient of the Audience

Award. BROTHER'S JUSTICE was distributed by Tribeca Films in 2011. Dax also wrote and directed the upcoming car chase thriller HIT & RUN (2012), in which he stars alongside real-life fiance Kristen Bell. HIT & RUN, which also features Bradley Cooper, Kristin Chenoweth, and Tom Arnold, will be released in theaters nationwide this summer by Open Road Films.

Shepard currently resides in Los Angeles.
