IDENTITY THIEF

With his candid approach and ability to find humor in life's everyday situations, SETH GORDON (Directed by) has become a favorite of many moviegoers with his compelling and true-to-life storytelling.  As a multi-hyphenated writer, director and producer, Gordon has made a name for himself with his unique sense of style and ability to deliver the perfect blend of humorous and intelligent fare in his films.

 In 2011, Gordon directed New Line Cinema's HORRIBLE BOSSES, which starred Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jamie Foxx.  HORRIBLE BOSSES has since earned more than $209 million worldwide.  Gordon has a two-year overall deal with Sony Pictures Television and recently sold five television shows to networks, including three comedies and two dramas.  Additionally, ABC picked up the pilot for HOW THE F AM I NORMAL, which Gordon will direct from a script by Adam F. Goldberg.  The project, an autobiographical show about growing up in the '80s with a highly dysfunctional but loving family, will be executive produced by Gordon, Goldberg and Happy Madison's Doug Robinson.

Gordon executive produced Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin's documentary UNDEFEATED, which won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Gordon also executive produced J. Clay Tweel's documentary MAKE BELIEVE, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and recently aired on Showtime.

In 2008, Gordon made his feature narrative film debut with FOUR CHRISTMASES, which starred Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon and grossed more than $163 million worldwide.  In television, Gordon co-created and executive produced FOX's BREAKING IN.  His other television credits as a director include episodes of THE OFFICE, MODERN FAMILY, COMMUNITY and PARKS AND RECREATION.

Most notably, Gordon directed the critically acclaimed documentary film THE KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS.  The film, which chronicles the intense rivalry between two Donkey Kong aficionados in the quest to obtain the highest-ever recorded score in the game, won Best Documentary awards at a number of festivals and awards from the Online Film Critics Society, the Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association and the Central Ohio Film Critics Association.  Gordon is currently in development on the narrative remake of THE KING OF KONG with New Line Cinema.

Gordon was one of the directors and executive producers on the documentary FREAKONOMICS.  The film was divided into sections in which Gordon's focused on the best-selling book's authors, Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. FREAKONOMICS takes everyday situations and uses economics to explain them.  Much more thrilling than any college textbook, the documentary takes the same message and brings it to film-goers.

Gordon is a graduate of Yale University, where he specialized in architecture and documentary film.  Gordon is an entirely self-taught director, as his alma mater had no film program.  He spent his first years out of school as a public high-school teacher and first picked up the camera to capture the stories that unfolded in a village in Kenya, where he lived and taught.
