Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An ingratiating comic performer with a knack for finding the humanity in stereotypical "geek" roles, actor Justin Long rose from television and indie features to supporting and starring roles in major features like "Accepted" (2006), "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007) and "He's Just Not That into You" (2009). Long's droll timing and refusal to mug was crucial in elevating him from his early roles as social misfits on "Ed" (NBC, 2000-04) to nervous but capable young men in the mold of Jack Lemmon for the aforementioned projects, as well as the popular feature films "Herbie: Fully Loaded" (2005) and "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" (2008). His low-key presence in a series of popular television ads for Apple computer in 2006 - as well as a brief romance with actress Drew Barrymore in 2008 - increased his visibility, which in turn helped to make him one of the most likable and dependable comic actors in both mediums.
