Although most Americans know him for playing the affable Officer Rhodes in "Bridesmaids" (2011), Chris O'Dowd was already a major star in Britain prior to his breakthrough performance in the Judd Apatow-produced wedding comedy. As the star of the British sitcom, "The IT Crowd" (Channel 4, 2006-2010), O'Dowd played a socially awkward computer geek named Roy. The show made O'Dowd a household name in Britain, and before long he was being courted by Hollywood, appearing in brief but memorable roles in such films as "Pirate Radio" (2009), "Dinner for Shmucks" (2010) and "Gulliver's Travels" (2010). But it was O'Dowd's role as the love interest of Kristen Wiig's character in "Bridesmaids" that made him a bona-fide Hollywood star. That film would go on to gross nearly $300 million at the box office in the summer of 2011, firmly minting Chris O'Dowd as one of the film world's newest big-screen funnymen.
