Jim Gaffigan is an American actor best known for his starring role as Andy Franklin in the television sitcom My Boys, from 2006-2009.

As a stand-up comedian, a Comedy Central Special, CD and DVD - all entitled Beyond the Pale - have catapulted Gaffigan to one of the most popular touring and recorded comedians in America. The CD and DVD for Beyond the Pale have sold over 100,000 copies each.

After Gaffigan's first appearance on Letterman, the host personally chose him to develop a sitcom for Worldwide Pants. Eighteen months later, Welcome to New York debuted on CBS to critical acclaim.

He then co-starred with Ellen DeGeneres on her CBS sitcom The Ellen Show. For two years Jim had recurring roles both on FOX's That 70's Show and NBC's Ed.

He has also had roles on Sex and the City, Third Watch and each of the Law & Order shows, among others.

On film, Jim has endeared himself to audiences by taking on vivid supporting characters in a number of genres. In the cult hit Super Troopers, Gaffigan got huge laughs and famously helped add "meow" to the lexicon of Vermont state troopers.

Jim's quiet dramatic turn in The Great New Wonderful, a meditation on the aftermath of 9/11, took audiences and critics by surprise as he embodied an office worker broken by tragedy who ultimately explodes in rage.

Gaffigan's other film credits include the independent films The Living Wake and Stephanie Daley. He has also been featured in Trust the Man, 13 Going on 30, Three Kings, Final, Igby Goes Down, Entropy and Thirty Years to Life.

In 2004, he co-starred in TNT's Bad Apple, with Chris Noth.

Many recognize Gaffigan from his numerous award-winning commercial campaigns, which include Sierra Mist, ESPN, Saturn and Rolling Rock. His commercial presence earned him Business Week's 1999 "Salesman of the Year" honour.

Gaffigan currently lives in New York with his family.
