Bio

John Michael Higgins is an American actor whose film credits include Christopher Guest's mockumentaries, the role of David Letterman in HBO's The Late Shift, and a starring role in the American version of Kath & Kim.

He played David Letterman in the acclaimed HBO movie The Late Shift and the flamboyantly gay Shih Tzu dog handler, Scott Donlon, in Christopher Guest's film comedy Best in Show.

Higgins also appeared in Fired Up, a comedy for Screen Gems Pictures, as well as Yes Man with Jim Carrey for Warner Bros. He also starred opposite Vince Vaughn in Fred Claus.

Higgins was seen in the Universal film Evan Almighty, starring opposite Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman. In addition to his film work, Higgins also starred in the Sony pilot The Thick of It, alongside Oliver Platt. Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) created the pilot which was directed by Guest.

Higgins also appeared in the film The Break Up with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston as well as the Guest film For Your Consideration, which reunited him with his cast mates from Best in Show and A Mighty Wind.

He previously co-starred in the Sony film Fun with Dick and Jane opposite Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni, as well as David Goyer's Blade 3 opposite Wesley Snipes.

Higgins also starred in the title role of the Lincoln Center/Broadway premiere of the A.R. Gurney play Big Bill, a searing drama about the fall from grace of the great American tennis champion Bill Tilden. Higgins reprised this role from his Williamstown Theatre Festival triumph, where he is a popular fixture.

Higgins also provides numerous over-the-top voices for Cartoon Network's Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law and for CGI animated show Game Over.

Christopher Guest, when planning his comic triumph A Mighty Wind, asked Higgins not only to star as Terry Bohner, the color-cultish leader of the New Main Street Singers, but also to write parody songs and create the complex vocal and instrumental arrangements for the film and the bestselling soundtrack.

Higgins also toured to instantly sold-out dates with the New Main Street Singers at the most prestigious music venues in the United States.

Higgins resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
