Kevin Corrigan is a man after De Niro's own heart and definitely has the acting potential and ability to been seen as such. He's a name you may not know, but I would bet that he is a face you would definitely recognize. In THE DEPARTED, Billy Costigan's (Leonardo DiCaprio) jerk-off cousin Sean, with no street smarts. In SUPERBAD, Crazy Mark who threatens to kick Seth's (Jonah Hill) ass, after his girlfriend "rides the crimson wave" on Seth's leg. The sensitive yet ruthless henchman/husband Budlofsky in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. And now, his latest role for which he will sure gain equal recognition. Patton Oswalt's best friend Sal in writer/director Robert Siegel's exploration of fandom and obsession, BIG FAN.

Check out our recent interview with Corrigan in which we discuss the dramatic/comedic aspects to what Oswalt calls his "FATSY DRIVER," the label of character actor and if Corrigan sees himself as such as well as a little bit about his upcoming indie film PONIES.
