Biography

A prolific bit player in features and television for over two decades, Rob Moran was a staple of comedies by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, including "There's Something About Mary" (1998) and "Hall Pass" (2011), while also appearing in numerous other features, TV series and made-for-TV movies. The Rhode Island native began in New York theater before moving to California in the mid-1980s. There, he worked in features for over a decade before landing a break of sorts with a minor role in the Farrellys' "Dumb and Dumber" (1994). He was soon a familiar face in their subsequent feature efforts while gradually moving up to featured guest roles, as well as series regular work on the short-lived but much-praised teen drama "South of Nowhere" (The N, 2005-2008). The new millennium found Moran moving between major roles in independent projects like the intense horror film "You're Next" (2011), bit parts in major features like "Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013), and roles of all sizes and types on television. Though anonymous to all but the most eagle-eyed viewers, Rob Moran was essentially the ideal for a working actor: persistent, versatile and blessed with longevity and good luck in his career.
