Matthew Lillard

With starring roles in four highly anticipated projects this upcoming year, Matthew Lillard is poised to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents.

Lillard recently wrapped production on the hilarious comedy Without A Paddle opposite Seth Green and Dax Shepard. The comedy, directed by Steven Brill, focuses on three city-dwelling friends who go on a camping trip with disastrous results. Lillard will next be seen opposite Josh Hartnett in the drama Obsessed. Lastly, Lillard has a cameo in the comic-caper The Perfect Score, about group of high school seniors who try to steal the answers to their upcoming SAT.

Matthew Lillard burst onto the screen in the huge box-office grossing film Scream and captured audiences with his hyper-kinetic portrayal of the teen serial killer Stuart. The performance earned him critical acclaim and worldwide recognition. Last year, Lillard starred in the smash hit Scooby-Doo and appeared in A Very Muppet Christmas Movie.

Other film credits include the horror film Thir13en Ghosts, She's All That, Summer Catch, Love's Labour's Lost, S.L.C. Punk, Wing Commander, Senseless and The Curve with Keri Russell.

Lillard began his acting career with a co-starring role in John Waters' Serial Mom alongside Kathleen Turner and Ricki Lake. He continued to land roles, including Chris O' Donnell's best friend in Mad Love; a memorable portrayal as a serial killer in Hackers; and an anti-abortion extremist opposite Cher and Anne Heche in HBO's original picture If These Walls Could Talk. Born in Michigan, Lillard was raised in California. After high school he attended Pasadena College of the Arts for several semesters and then moved to New York City to study at the distinguished Circle in the Square Theater Company.

Lillard resides in Los Angeles with his wife and newborn daughter.
