Actor Greg Germann is probably best known as attorney Richard Fish -- the tactless, neurotic litigator who went head-to-head with Ally McBeal in law school, but soon does an about face and hires her, on that character's eponymous Fox comedy drama. Actually, that role only represented the tail end of a long ascent to stardom for the gifted actor. Germann trained as a dramatist at an early age by performing in local stage productions in his childhood home of Golden, CO. In the early '80s, Germann moved to New York City and attended auditions before film producers tapped him for supporting roles in pictures ranging from the eminently forgettable (the 1986 Whoopee Boys) to the outstanding (the 1991 Once Around, the 1994 Imaginary Crimes). Germann found his greatest success, however, in television; after landing regular roles on two short-lived programs, the legal drama Sweet Justice and the sitcom Ned and Stacey (1995), the actor caught the eye of McBeal mastermind David E. Kelley. Kelley praised Germann as an actor so versatile that he could seemingly do anything; unsurprisingly, the role, like the series, lasted five seasons.Germann followed Ally McBeal up with supporting parts in a series of mostly forgettable films, including the direct-to-video Sandlot 2 (2005) and crazylove (2005), before returning to form with a prime role in the Will Ferrell racing comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006). Germann then landed a regular role as a mentally disturbed diet guru in the decidedly quirky (and short-lived) comedy drama series In Case of Emergency (2007). He also delivered an extraordinary performance as a quiet, compassionate counselor in Monty Lapica's big-screen debut, Self-Medicated (2005). Germann appeared in Quarantine (2008) director John E. Dowdle revamp of [REC] Paco Plaza's Spanish-language horror film [REC], and starred in The Santa Incident, a family-friendly comedy film following a pair of siblings charged with helping Santa back to the North Pole, in 2010. In 2011 he co-starred in the drama Fly Away, and worked with Salma Hayek and Kevin James in the 2012 action comedy Here Comes the Boom.
