The son of a U.S. diplomat, Greg Kinnear was born in Logansport, Ind., on June 17, 1963, but grew up all over the world, attending college in Greece and launching his career as a young talk show host with the radio-based "School Daze with Greg Kinnear."

After a failed attempt to become an MTV VJ, he eventually snagged a job as host of the E! network's "Talk Soup," which led to his own late-night talk show, "Later with Greg Kinnear." But it was his breakout performance in Sydney Pollack's remake of Sabrina (1995) that got him noticed as a serious actor and opened doors to an Academy Award-nominated performance in As Good as It Gets (1997).

In the wake of his Oscar buzz, Kinnear has shown a fondness for selecting both traditional and quirky roles, appearing in You've Got Mail (1998), Nurse Betty (2000), Someone Like You (2001), Auto Focus (2002) and Little Miss Sunshine (2006).

U.S. Defense Intelligence Agent Clark Poundstone doesn't want to hear what Army Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller has to say about not finding the weapons of mass destruction he's been sent to Iraq to unearth. Why the cover-up?
