Donal Logue

Though a stage-trained performer who had amassed numerous film and television credits, actor Donal Logue came into his own playing the obnoxious, but culturally enlightened Jimmy the Cabdriver in short interstitials on MTV during the mid-to-late-1990s. Unrecognizable in his caricature of a pop culture know-it-all with greasy hair and thick glasses annoying his customers, Logue was sought out for a wide range of character parts, including regular series roles on several short-lived shows. He was exposed to a wider audience with a small, but memorable turn as a junior agent in the blockbuster hit, "Jerry Maguire" (1996), which led to parts in several low-budget indies and a prominent supporting role in "Blade" (1998). But it was his starring role in the independent comedy, "The Tao of Steve" (2000), in which he played an overweight and unappealing man with a surefire method of seducing women, that propelled his career to new heights. The following year, he landed the starring role in "Grounded for Life" (Fox/The WB, 2001-05) as a young irresponsible father which helped earn him further popularity. From there, Logue oscillated from independent films to high-profile movies like "Ghost Rider" (2007) and "Max Payne" (2008), while keeping a firm footing in television with shows like "Life" (NBC, 2007-09) and "Terriers" (FX, 2010), making him one of the most sought-after performers working in the business.
