Bio

Mike O'Malley is an American actor best known for his starring role as Jimmy Hughes, who takes a laid-back approach to life which is an approach that's exactly the opposite of his in-laws, in the television sitcom Yes, Dear, from 2000-2006.

O'Malley began his career on the small screen as the host of Nickelodeon's Get the Picture, and later hosted the channel's sports-fantasy program, Guts.

During his time at Nickelodeon, O'Malley wrote his first play, in which he also acted, Three Years From Thirty. The play was produced in New York and subsequently published by Samuel French.

The success of this play inspired him to write a second work, Diverting Devotion, which was also published. He has continued to work as a playwright, and his third play, Searching for Certainty, was produced in Los Angeles in 2003.

O'Malley's network television debut came in 1996 when he was cast in the sitcom Life with Roger. Warner Bros then hired him to create a new show set in Portsmouth, New Hampshire which was later shot as a pilot.

His next TV stint came when he was cast as The Rick, the idiosyncratic sports fan featured in the long-running ESPN promos directed by Christopher Guest. In 2000, he landed his biggest primetime role as Jimmy Hughes on the hit sitcom Yes, Dear.

In 2008 he played the role of central character Henry Spivey's (Christian Slater) eccentric co-worker, and his alter ego, skilled secret agent Raymond, in the drama series My Own Worst Enemy.

O'Malley's numerous feature film roles, beginning with his film debut as Elijah Wood's astronomy teacher in Deep Impact, include starring opposite John Cusack in Pushing Tin and Sandra Bullock in 28 Days. He also starred as Mickey in George Clooney's Leatherheads.

O'Malley was born in Boston, and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire and studied acting at the Gately-Poole Acting Studio in New York City.

Currently, he resides in Los Angeles with his wife Lisa and their three children.
