Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Matt Malloy's "This American Life" bio states that "Matt starred in the film In the Company of Men and has been in movies and TV shows with half the famous actors you've ever heard of." This is an excellent description of the actor, a man known for playing everyman characters in many acclaimed black comedies. In addition to appearing frequently to tell others' stories on the long-running NPR anthology series "This American Life," Malloy worked as a character actor in a variety of mediums. He was born on January 12, 1947 in Hamilton, NY, and he attended SUNY Purchase. His first major role was as Deke Conners, a filmmaker hired to make campaign commercials in the political mockumentary "Tanner '88" (HBO 1988). After that, he took on small roles in TV shows and movies, not seeking out flashy parts, but instead frequently playing pathetic, complicated minor roles. In 1997, he starred alongside Aaron Eckhart in an independent black comedy about male co-workers setting out to corrupt a deaf female colleague. Called "In the Company of Men," it was Malloy's only starring movie role. In 1997, he read one of comic writer David Sedaris's stories on "This American Life," about a TV producer trying to convince a...

In 1997, he starred alongside Aaron Eckhart in an independent black comedy about male co-workers setting out to corrupt a deaf female colleague. Called "In the Company of Men," it was Malloy's only starring movie role. In 1997, he read one of comic writer David Sedaris's stories on "This American Life," about a TV producer trying to convince a group of Evangelicals to convince one of their congregation to release her life story to reality TV. He continued to appear on the show until 2011, his humble voice and dark sense of humor fitting the macabre Americana of the radio program. He co-starred in the Amazon original series "Alpha House" (2013), created by "Tanner '88" creator Garry Trudeau, as one of four senators living together in a communal house. His character Louis Laffer is a conservative anti-gay senator whose own sexuality is brought into question.
