John Michael Higgins

Michael Higgins is a double hyphenate: he’s sort-of well-known for being a member of the Christopher Guest “company,” starring in such films as BEST IN SHOW and A MIGHTY WIND. But before becoming a disreputable light improvisational comedic actor he spent twenty years on the New York and regional stages doing lots of things that nobody gives a shit about anymore. Then, after playing David Letterman in the HBO film THE LATE SHIFT, Mr. Higgins’ career became centered in Hollywood. In addition to many animated series (like Janet Varney’s own “Legend of Korra” above or below, or whichever position she’s taking these days), Michael has another twenty years of appearances on television shows ranging from SEINFELD to CSI, from ALLY MCBEAL and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT to KATH AND KIM and the recently deceased HAPPILY DIVORCED.
Movie audiences also know him for his work in the films of Vince Vaughn, THE BREAK-UP, FRED CLAUS and COUPLES RETREAT, and with Jim Carrey in FUN WITH DICK AND JANE and YES MAN. More recently it’s been PITCH PERFECT and BEST MAN HOLIDAY, in addition to lots of commercial work like OLD NAVY and that idiot executive in all those DIRECTV commercials and the current DIY videos for LOWE’S on FUNNY OR DIE.
