Celebrity Birthday of the Day – January 27

A graduate of NYU’s film school, Todd Louiso is an actor who is quickly making a name for himself due to his work in numerous popular TV shows and movies. He began his career on television in a few after school specials, and his first film role was as “Preppy Boy #1” in the film Stella. Some notable credits early in his career include his role as “Trent Potter” in Scent of a Woman, as “FAO White” in Apollo 13, as “Marvin Isherwood” in The Rock, and as “Chad the Nanny” in Jerry Maguire. Louiso’s ability to play small, unassuming, yet cynical and memorable side characters helped him land his most popular role to date in 2000’s High Fidelity as Dick, the quiet counterpart to Jack Black’s insane Jerry. Following High Fidelity‘s success, Louiso continued to act in secondary roles in TV series including Frasier, House, Weeds, and Californication, and in movies such as Snakes on a Plane, School for Scoundrels, and Thank You For Smoking. I’d be remiss in my duties if I failed to mention Louiso’s work as a director, too, for he has directed two feature length films and a short (as of the time of this writing), titled Love Liza, The Marc Pease Experience, and The Fifteen Minute Hamlet, respectively.
