A graduate of Yale’s theatre program, Ron Livingston’s first film role was in the 1992 Dolly Parton film Straight Talk, but it wasn’t until his roles in the 1995 film Swingers and the 1999 film Office Space that he really came into prominence. His starring role in Office Space gained a lot of attention, and in 2001, Livingston played a large role in the mini-series Band of Brothers. Since then, Livingston has done extensive work in television, appearing on the shows The Practice, Sex and the City, House, American Dad, and Defying Gravity. He has also appeared in numerous popular films, including Adaptation, The Cooler, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Dinner for Schmucks, as well as lending his voice to the video game Halo: Reach. Ron Livingston turns 45 today.
