Greg Kinnear was born on June 17, 1963, in Logansport, Indiana, USA
to parents Edward Kinnear, a career diplomat who worked for the US
State Department and Suzanne Kinnear, a full-time homemaker. Greg
also has two brothers--one named James, an executive director of
the Corvallis Convention and Visitors Bureau in Oregon (born in
1957), and one named Steve, a business manager who works for the
Billy Graham Training Center in North Carolina (born in 1959). As a
child, Greg and his family moved around a lot, from places as far
as Beirut, Lebanon to Athens, Greece. While a student in Athens,
Greg first ventured into the role of talk show host with his radio
show "School Daze With Greg Kinnear." Returning to the States for a
college education, he attended the University of Arizona in Tucson,
where he graduated in 1985 with a degree in broadcast journalism.
From Arizona he headed out to Los Angeles, where he landed his
first job as a marketing assistant with Empire Entertainment.
Following this job he auditioned to be an MTV VJ, but failed and
became a host and on-location reporter for the channel. When that
job went under he had bit parts on such television shows as _"L.A.
Law" (1986)_ (qv) and _"Life Goes On" (1989)_ (qv). He would later
become the creator, co-executive producer, and host of _"Best of
the Worst" (1990)_ (qv), which aired from 1990 to 1991. He then
received his breakthrough when he became the first host of _"Talk
Soup" (1991)_ (qv) until 1994, when he left the show for the NBC
late-night talk show, _"Later with Greg Kinnear" (1994)_ (qv). It
was also in 1994 that Kinnear had his first big screen role, as a
talk show host yet again in the 'Damon Wayans' (qv) comedy
_Blankman (1994)_ (qv). In 1995 he won the part of the David
Larrabee in 'Sydney Pollack' (qv)'s remake of 'Billy Wilder' (qv)'s
1954 classic _Sabrina (1995)_ (qv). He then received the lead role
in the 1996 comedy _Dear God (1996)_ (qv). In 1997, Greg was cast
in 'James L. Brooks' (qv)'s blockbuster comedy drama _As Good As It
Gets (1997)_ (qv), for which he received an Oscar nomination for
Best Supporting Actor. His next film, the romantic comedy _Smile
Like Yours, A (1997)_ (qv), had him starring opposite 'Lauren
Holly' (qv) as part of a couple trying to have a baby. The film met
with lukewarm reviews and a low box office, but his next film,
_You've Got Mail (1998)_ (qv), struck gold. He played 'Meg Ryan'
(qv)'s significant other, a newspaper columnist wholly unlike what
was to be his next character, that of Captain Amazing in the 1999
summer action film _Mystery Men (1999)_ (qv). His more recent films
have _Nurse Betty (2000)_ (qv), _Loser (2000)_ (qv), and _Someone
Like You... (2001)_ (qv).
