Biography

An energetic and amiable actor with a flair for comedy, Texas-bred Alan Tudyk has become known for leading stage roles in off-beat productions and scene-stealing supporting turns in film. The usually spiky haired blonde possesses chiseled Germanic good looks and an oft-revealed muscular body, power-connoting attributes interestingly offset by his frequent portrayals of effete or inane characters. The Juilliard graduate first made his mark with work on stage in both regional and Off-Broadway productions before marking his Broadway debut with 1999's "Epic Proportions" and essaying memorable supporting turns in the 2000 features "Wonder Boys" and "28 Days."
