Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although he's made waves in the entertainment industry for his memorable work in "Scream" (1996) and "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06), to most casual moviegoers, W. Earl Brown is primarily known for playing Cameron Diaz's mentally handicapped brother in "There's Something About Mary" (1998). Yet despite being a nameless face to millions, Brown, who prefers to be called by his middle name Earl, remains one of Hollywood's most consistently prolific actors. Throughout his decades-long career, Brown has appeared in dozens of noteworthy films and television shows, including 2012's "The Master" and "The Sessions" - both of which were nominated for Academy Awards - while also having recently added writer and producer to his long list of acting credits.
