“I was sittin’ on the porch with my guitar one day, I was thinkin’ about how, back in the day, you only got the one. Now there’s 12 hours of programming. You can pick your 24-hour channel and watch cars run over people in a way you never knew they could.

DAY

After graduating from Weymouth North High School (1989), Corddry went to the University of Massachusetts Amherst (1989–93). According to an interview in the UMass Amherst alumni magazine, Corddry initially planned to major in journalism, but he stuck with it for just two days. English became his official major. By his second year, he focused much of his attention on Drama classes and plays including Torch Song Trilogy, Ten Little Indians, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Romeo and Juliet, and Reckless. While at UMass, Corddry pledged the Theta chapter of Theta Chi fraternity. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

On August 15, 2006, Corddry said "I've got like a week and a half left, all bets are off", and then on August 21, 2006, Stewart remarked that Corddry's last day on The Daily Show would be August 24, 2006. Corddry appeared throughout the week, once filing a report from inside a toilet bowl supposedly on board an aircraft transporting John Mark Karr, and another dressed up in a 1970s fashion; Stewart remarked, "It's his last week, and really, we're trying to come up with terrible things for him to have to do."

And coming up in 2020 he’ll be executive producing and writing the spinoff of the Emmy-winning series Childrens Hospital with Medical Police on Netflix, while also co-hosting the new season of Top Gear America alongside Dax Shepard.

“I’ve been eyeing these for a while, a couple of my dream cars,” Corddry said. “My first one would be a 1970-71 Datsun 280Z. It’s gorgeous; a car that may as well have been a Porsche, it’s just so beautiful and chic. Another car that I want is a 1987 Buick Grand National GNX. It looks like your grandmother’s Buick, except it only came in the black and when it was released it was the fastest production car in the world. They used to call it the Darth Vader car. I swear I will have one of those one day.” (Source: www.mensjournal.com Rob Corddry: I’m fortunate to be able to say he’s a friend. As a friend, he really is everything that you’d want him to be. His whole MO, his business model and life model is to be kind to people and work hard. He’s just a good dude and he’s someone who is great to work with. Working with him was a lesson in seeing what it takes to be The Rock every day. He never does anything half-assed. He manages his time in a way that he can do all this stuff and still have a family, be a dad, and be awesome at everything—I don’t know how he does it, he’s incredible. He’s really fun to work with and made Ballers an absolute joy. (Source:www.mensjournal.com))

It’s been great. We’ve been friends for years and when he called me up about the show, he made it halfway through the pitch before I said ‘I’ll do anything you’re doing.’ He had really worked with the producers to find a show that was suited to his talents. He’s a great actor in every sense of the word. He’s done comedy as well, but most people know him as an edgy villain from things like Justified. You cannot have a bad scene with him—ever. I just feel I’m in good hands every day going to work…..even when I’m not at my best [laughs]. (Source: www.mensjournal.com)

I’ve been asked by young actors on some of their first jobs about advice for being on a set and things like that. And I say: “Always hang up your costume at the end of the day, don’t be a dick.” It is like a recipe for the whole mindset that you bring to the business. Like in a way, when you look at it, the actors have the easiest job and the hardest thing is dealing with the public and what comes along with that. Saying other people’s words believably does have its challenges, but for the most part it’s not hard labor. So don’t make it harder for other people who are actually getting in three hours before you and leave hours after you—basically, don’t let them deal with your dirty underwear. (Source: www.mensjournal.com There’s actually some advice that wasn’t directly given to me, but stuck with me. Back in the early New York days of my career, my best friend at the time, his girlfriend Molly, she would drag us up to Broadway plays sometimes—we wouldn’t actually go to them, we couldn’t afford that, but just to see the actors come out. I remember one time Patrick Stewart was doing a show. She goes up to him and said, “Do you have any advice for young actors?” He turned to her and said in his Patrick Stewart voice: “Act! All the time.” (Source:www.mensjournal.com))

Initially recognized for his work as a smart-aleck reporter on a fictional news program, comedic actor Rob Corddry went on to impress audiences in a variety of roles, both on television and in feature films. After making his television debut with several guest spots on the improv comedy series "Upright Citizens Brigade" (Comedy Central, 1998-2000), the Massachusetts native grabbed considerable attention as a smarmy, inept correspondent on the Emmy-winning satirical news program "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ) under the guidance of Jon Stewart. During his four-year tenure on the popular "news" program, Corddry made forays into feature films in such vehicles as the Will Ferrell collegiate comedy "Old School" (2003) before briefly venturing out on his own as the star of the short-lived, Seth McFarlane-produced sitcom "The Winner" (Fox, 2007). Corddry had better success on the big screen, where he expanded his repertoire to include diverse roles in projects ranging from the Ben Stiller romantic comedy remake "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007) to playing Press Secretary Ari Fleischer in Oliver Stone's presidential biopic "W." (2008). As a writer, director and star, he launched the medical spoof "Childrens Hospital" (Adult Swim, 2010-16) even as he continued taking on more prominent acting roles in mainstream features like the raucous comic fantasy "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010). Continually expanding his unique brand of comedy, Corddry enjoyed a prolific and varied career in film and television.

Tim Lippe (Helms) was the guy people always thought would go places but then he just ... didn't. He's been living in über-sleepy Brown Valley, Wisconsin his whole life, still "pre-engaged" to his 7th grade teacher Macy Vanderhei (Weaver), while selling insurance to protect other people's dreams. But now, Tim's stalled life is about to get a kick-start because, for the first time in his 34 years, he's headed to a "major" metropolis - Cedar Rapids, Iowa - where he must try to save his company at a do-or-die insurance convention that, for him, will be entirely unconventional. From the minute he checks into his hotel with his ancient American Tourister and cummerbund money belt, it's clear Tim has no idea how the modern world really works. He is soon smitten with seductive Nebraskan insurance agent Joan Ostrowski-Fox (Heche) and awed by his experienced roommates, the straight-shooting Ronald Wilkes (Whitlock Jr.) and the suspicious Dean Zeigler (Reilly). Disheartened when he comes face-to-face with corporate corruption, Tim is ultimately lured beyond the lobby into an urban jungle he's only ever seen on DVD and when it seems his life - and chances to succeed - have gone completely topsy-turvy, he finds his own unjaded way to turn it all around.
