This week, we have two for the price of one! Two home grown talents who have gone from starring in Channel 4s utterly brilliant IT Crowd to taking Hollywood, if not exactly by storm, certainly with a decent thump!
NAME: Chris O'Dowd (born 9 October 1979),
ABOUT: Irish Actor O'Dowd is still perhaps best known for his role as Roy in the IT Crowd. O'Dowd was born in Sligo and grew up in County Roscommon, Ireland. He unsuccessfully studied politics and sociology at University College, Dublin, never finishing his degree saying that he just wasn’t able to find an interest in sociology.
