Lowest Rated: 3% Rollerball (2002)

Birthday: Mar 14, 1979

Birthplace: Hinsdale, Illinois, USA

With his all-American good looks and clean-cut image, Chris Klein rode the wave of the fin de siècle teen movie explosion, but had trouble sustaining an acting career as an adult. Discovered at his Omaha high school by director Alexander Payne for the Reese Witherspoon hit, "Election" (1999), Klein charmed as the polite student president candidate. He catapulted to fame with a lead role in the smash teen sex comedy "American Pie" (1999) and its sequel, starring as a sensitive jock in the vein of Keanu Reeves, to whom he was often compared. Klein kept his momentum going with roles in projects like "Rollerball" (2002) and "American Dreamz" (2006), but showed a spikier comedic edge with a rare villainous turn in "Just Friends" (2005).
