ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH
ROB CORDDRY (Gary Supernova) has become a comedic actor in high demand,
both on television and in feature films. In his busiest year to date, Corddry recently starred
in SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, alongside Steve Carell and Keira Knightley;
BUTTER, opposite Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman; abd WARM BODIES,
Jonathan Levine's highly anticipated adaptation of the zombie novel by Isaac Marion.
Described by VARIETY as "TWILIGHT meets SHAUN OF THE DEAD," the film also stars Nicholas Hoult,
Teresa Palmer and John Malkovich. In April Corddry can be seen in Michael Bay's PAIN & GAIN, opposite Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival featured three Corddry performances, making him
one of the few actors in the festival's history to have so many starring roles in showcased
films. He was seen in THE WAY, WAY BACK, for THE DESCENDANTS scribes Nat Faxon and Jim
Rash; IN A WORLD..., written, directed by and starring Lake Bell (along with Demetri Martin
and Geena Davis); and HELL BABY, a horror comedy from "Reno 911!" writers Thomas
Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.
Previously, Corddry appeared in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, with Craig Robinson and
John Cusack; CEDAR RAPIDS, alongside Ed Helms and John C. Reilly; THE HEARTBREAK KID, with
Ben Stiller and Malin Akerman; WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron
Diaz; HAROLD & KUMAR ESCAPE GUANTANAMO BAY, with Kal Penn and John Cho; W.,
alongside Josh Brolin; and the Will Ferrell comedies OLD SCHOOL, SEMI-PRO and BLADES OF GLORY.
Corddry made his debut on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" in
the spring of 2002 and quickly became one of the most popular correspondents to emerge
from this groundbreaking talk show. He continued to "educate" audiences with his snarky
political sketches through 2006 and has reprised his role in guest appearances over the years.
Following his run on "The Daily Show," Corddry moved to Los Angeles and in 2007
starred on the Fox sitcom "The Winner," created by "Family Guy" producers Seth
MacFarlane and Ricky Blitt.
During the 2007-2008 WGA strike, Corddry created original "television-esque"
programming for the Internet that immediately captured the attention of Warner Bros. TV.
His web series "Childrens Hospital," spoofing medical dramas such as "Grey's Anatomy"
and "E.R.," made its debut in 2008. The series won the Webby Award for Best Comedy:
Long Form or Series and received nominations for Best Individual Performance (Corddry)
and Best 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 Web to
television. Nominated alongside programming from "30 Rock," "Web Therapy" and "The
Daily Show," "Childrens Hospital" won an Emmy in the new category of Short-Format
Live-Action. The show also won an award at Comedy Central's inaugural Comedy Awards.
Over the years, "Childrens Hospital" has been graced by the talents of Jason
Sudeikis, Lake Bell, Megan Mullally, Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Jon Hamm, Kate Walsh and
many others. Season Five will debut this summer.
Corddry's other television credits include guest appearances on "Community,"
"Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Party Down" and "Arrested Development."
Corddry currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two young daughters.
