Breckin Meyer (born May 7, 1974) is an American actor and producer.


Early life

Meyer was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Dorothy Ann (née Vial), a travel agent and former microbiologist, and Christopher William Meyer, a management consultant. [ [ Breckin Meyer Biography (1974-) ] ] As a child of divorced parents, he lived in California, Texas, West Virginia and New Jersey. He has an older brother, Frank, and a younger brother, Adam. Meyer attended elementary school with Drew Barrymore (and was apparently her first kiss [according to an extra on the "50 First Dates" DVD] ) at Beverly Hills High School. [ [ Breckin Meyer Biography - Yahoo! Movies ] ] Through his elementary school, he came into contact with Barrymore's agent who signed Meyer. As a child, he was mostly seen in television advertisements. He also appeared as a definition giver on the game show "Child's Play".


In 1990, Meyer acted in the made-for-television movie "Camp Cucamonga". Breckin Meyer and Alicia Silverstone attended the same high school in real life and starred in "Clueless" together.

Meyer plays Joseph Gribble on the FOX cartoon "King of the Hill" and has been promoted from being a cast member to also being a writer on Seth Green's stop motion animated series, "Robot Chicken". He owns a production company together with Seth Green and Ryan Phillippe. He also played in Road Trip with Tom Green and Seann William Scott. His most recent project was a movie called "Blue State" in which he plays a super-liberal guy on the campaign trail for John Kerry in the 2004 elections. He drunkenly pledges to move to Canada if Bush wins the election, and on his journey meets a mysterious young woman, played by Anna Paquin.

In 2008 he guest-starred in the TV Series House as a struggling artist with vision-problems.

Meyer played drums in the punk band The Street Walkin' Cheetahs and has played numerous shows with Tom Morello's The Nightwatchman, as well as Ben Harper, Cypress Hill, Slash and Perry Farrell at LA's Hotel Cafe.

Personal life

Meyer married screenwriter and film director Deborah Kaplan on October 14, 2001 and has one child with her.
