WARM BODIES

ROB CORDDRY (M) made his debut on THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART in the spring of 2002 and quickly became one of the most popular correspondents to emerge from the groundbreaking talk show. He continued to "educate" audiences with his snarky political sketches through the fall of 2006, and has reprised his role in guest appearances scattered through the years since.

He moved to Los Angeles following his run on THE DAILY SHOW and in 2007 Corddry starred in the Fox sitcom THE WINNER created by FAMILY GUY writers/producers Seth MacFarlane and Ricky Blitt. Joining the throngs of many other critically acclaimed shows, THE WINNER lasted only a half-dozen episodes before it was taken off the air.

In a serendipitous turn of events brought about by the need for out-of-the-box thinking to continue work during the infamous 2007‐-008 writers' strike, Corddry was one of the first to create original "television-esque" programming for the Internet and captured the attention of Warner Bros. TV early on. The web series CHILDRENS HOSPITAL, spoofing the hijinks of medical drama genre such as GREY'S ANATOMY and ER, launched in December 2008. The 5-minute "webisodes" starred Corddry (also the creator, writer, and oft-times director), SNL's Jason Sudeikis, Lake Bell, Megan Mullally, and Ed Helms (among others). The series won the Webby Award for "Comedy: Long Form or Series" and received two other nominations: "Best Individual Performance"(Corddry) and "Comedy: Individual Short or Episode."

The second season of CHILDRENS HOSPITAL debuted on Adult Swim a year later, making it one of the first shows ever to make the successful transition from a web-series to a television series. Despite the unspoken network rivalry, CHILDRENS HOSPITAL won the award for "Best Sketch Comedy/Alternative Comedy" at the first ever Comedy Central-hosted Comedy Awards. CHILDRENS HOSPITAL received its first Emmy nomination and beat programming from 30 ROCK Lisa Kudrow (WEB THERAPY) and his alma mater THE DAILY SHOW to win its first Emmy Award in the new category of Short-Format Live-Action.

Appealing to acclaimed actors across the board, the cast of the latest seasons also boasts the talents of Malin Akerman, Nick Offerman, MAD MEN's Jon Hamm, television legend Henry Winkler, Rob Huebel, Ken Marino, THE LEAGUE'S Nick Kroll and Paul Scheer, Kate Walsh, and many others. Season Five will debut in the summer of 2013.

In what have perhaps become some of his busiest years to date, in addition to his ubiquitous work on CHILDRENS HOSPITAL Corddry is also starring in and shooting numerous feature films. In June he starred alongside Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in Focus Features' SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF HTE WORLD. In September starred in the dark comedy BUTTER opposite Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman for The Weinstein Company.

The Sundance Film Festival of 2013 will feature three films in which Corddry stars, making him one of the few actors in history of the festival to have as many starring roles in showcased films. Included in the festival are THE WAY WAY BACK for THE DECENDANTS scribes Nat Faxon and Jim Rashand; IN A WORLD, written, directed by and starring Lake Bell (along with Demetri Martin); and HELL BABY, the horror comedy from RENO 911 writers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.

In April 2013, Corddry can be seen in Michael Bay's PAIN AND GAIN with Mark Wahlberg. He also voiced a character for The Weinstein Company's first animated feature, ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH, planned for release later in the year.

In 2010 Corddry starred in the ensemble comedy feature HOT TUB TIME MACHINE for MGM and director Steve Pink. The story follows three grown men (Corddry, Craig Robinson, and John Cusack) as they visit the hot tub where they once partied, discover it is now a time machine, and travel back to their raunchy heyday in the mid-1980's. He also turned a cameo appearance in CEDAR RAPIDS alongside Ed Helms and John C. Reilly.

Having been long-embraced by the film community, Corddry has appeared in dozens of comedy features in addition to his television projects, notably OLD SCHOOL, SEMI-PRO, THE HEARTBREAK KID and BLADES OF GLORY. He has also been featured in the buddy comedy WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, HAROLD & KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY, and in a more dramatic capacity as Ari Fleischer in Oliver Stone's chronicle on the life and presidency of George W. Bush, W. Corddry has appeared on television shows including COMMUNITY, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

Corddry currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two young daughters.
