Stage and screen actor Matthew Broderick was already a Tony Award-winning Broadway actor when film audiences fell in love with his 1986 performance as a highly evolved high school truant in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Apart from his onscreen successes, Broderick was one of the most respected musical and comedy stage actors of his generation, with highly acclaimed starring roles in "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and "The Producers." On the big screen, he enjoyed occasional success with broad comedies like "The Cable Guy" (1996) and "Bee Movie" (2007) - as well as his first big hit, the nuclear thriller "Wargames" (1983) - but Hollywood often failed to find a solid place for the mild mannered, bookish-looking New Yorker and he was usually more memorable in independent, character-based films like "Election" (1999) and "You Can Count on Me" (2000).
