During his four-year tenure on the popular "news" program, Corddry made forays into feature films in such vehicles as the Will Ferrell collegiate comedy "Old School" (2003) before briefly venturing out on his own as the star of the short-lived, Seth McFarlane-produced sitcom "The Winner" (Fox, 2007). Corddry had better success on the big screen, where he expanded his repertoire to include diverse roles in projects ranging from the Ben Stiller romantic comedy remake "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007) to playing Press Secretary Ari Fleischer in Oliver Stone's presidential biopic "W."
