Biography

Not since Sean Penn played the surfer/stoner dude Spicoli in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (1982) had a relatively unknown actor stolen a teen movie as effortlessly as Christopher Mintz-Plasse did in Judd Apatow's summer sleeper hit, "Superbad" (2007). As Fogell, the skinny nerd with nerves of steel, Mintz-Plasse looked like Clark Kent but thought he was Superman. And like that bifurcated character, Fogell also had an alter ego - the super-smooth ladies man McLovin - whose pitch-perfect name became a pop icon plastered on T-shirts, bumper stickers, and computer screensavers the world over that summer. Making the character part of the cultural landscape was quite an accomplishment, considering not only his young age, but more importantly, the fact that this was Mintz-Plasse's first movie role.

Bonus Trivia

.

Mintz-Plasse landed his breakout role in "Superbad" by sending in a headshot that was taken on his camera phone.

.

On the possibility of being typecast as McLovin: "I think right now it’s working for me, ’cause I’m making movies. I’m playing different roles and people see me as that—I think they go into the audition going like, 'Oh my God. The kid who played McLovin is here. I love that role. I want to see what he’s got.' If I make them laugh or do something different, then I get the role. So right now, it’s not haunting me at all." - from www.avclub.com, April 22, 2010
