JOHN C. REILLY BIOGRAPHY
John C. Reilly, born John Christopher Reilly, was born on May 10, 1965 in Chicago, where he studied acting at DePaul University’s Theater School. The film debut comes with Casualties of war (1989) by Brian De Palma as Elite Soldier Herbert Hatcher; a role that was initially supposed to be small, but which the director, after meeting Reilly, decided to downsize. A few years later the actor is the superior of Tom Cruise in Days of thunder (1990) and a criminal named Stevie in the gangster movie State of grace (1990). After some minor parts in Shadows and fog (1991) and Happy birthday Mr. Grape (1993), Reilly plays the role of antagonist alongside Kevin Bacon in the thriller The River Wind – The river of fear (1994).
The actor finally received the lead role in 1996 with the film Paul Thomas Anderson, Sydney, where he plays John, a poor man in the barrel who, after acquaintance with a gambler, will totally revolutionize his life. Anderson will be one of the directors with Reilley to whom he will collaborate most, the filmmaker will in fact direct him also in Boogie Nights (1997) and Magnolia (1999), both earned him nominations for the Screen Actors Guil Awards.
Towards the end of the nineties he joined the cast of The thin red line (1998) of Terrence Malick like Sergeant Storm and in Never been kissed (1999) as Gus the editor-in-chief who hires the character of Drew Barrymore to infiltrate a high school to document the lives of teenagers. The new millennium begins with a series of participations in great films, which, despite being only minor roles, guarantee Reilly a great visibility. Among these there are certainly The perfect storm (2000), where Murph is the fisherman, e The Hours (2002), in which he plays the husband of the character of Julianne Moore.
In recent years he has also been directed by top-level directors, such as Martin Scorsese, who wants him in the cast of Gangs of New York (2002) and The Aviator (2004), with the latter he won a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Awards; Rob Marshall, with which he collaborates in Chicago (2002), a film that earned him an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe nomination and a win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards for Best Supporting Actor; finally, Robert Altman on the set of Radio America (2006). Now established in the cinema scene with his nice and sometimes funny face, the actor is entrusted with some leading roles: in Criminal (2004) plays the petty crook Richard Gaddis, in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) is a rock star with a turbulent life, performance for which he is nominated for a Golden Globe, and in Step brothers at 40 (2008) suddenly finds himself related to Will Ferrell.
2009 is the year of his first fantastic film, Vampire help, where he plays the vampire Larten Crepsley. It has to do with a very young man Jonah Hill in Cyrus (2010) and with a Ezra Miller teenager in … and now let’s talk about Kevin (2011). He then enters the cast of Carnage of Roman Polański, de The dictator (2012) with Sacha Baron Cohen and of Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), in which he is a member of the Nova Corps.
