Birthplace: New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Harry Connick Jr. is, first and foremost, known for his abilities behind a piano and for his smooth, baritone vocals. Connick is a prodigious performer, having released some 15 albums by the age of 30. He was approached by Rob Reiner to put together some music for the 1989 film When Harry Met Sally. He brought together an orchestra and covered many popular big-band era songs. An album was put together and prompted a whirlwind tour that helped the album sell amazingly well. Because of this success and Connick's Aw Shucks personality, film appearances were inevitable. His first was in 1990's Memphis Belle and he has consistantly worked in film since then, most notably as Will Smith's wisecracking friend in Independence Day, and in an unexpected turn as the mimicking, murdurous psychopath in Copycat (1995). The late '90s found Connick in larger roles that were a testament to his versatility, including Hope Floats (1998) and Wayward Son (1999). In 2000, Connick brought in the new millennium with a role in My Dog Skip. In 1994, Connick married model Jill Goodacre and together they have two daughters.

QUOTES FROM Harry Connick Jr. CHARACTERS

Ramona Calvert says: You smell just delicious, Justin, are you wearin' cologne?

Justin Matisse says: Naw, just sweat with a little painter thinner in it.

Narrator says: There were so many surprises that year. Who'd have thought that my daddy would ever let me play football? And who'd have dreamed that Rivers Applewhite, the prettiest girl in town, would let me hold her hand? It was indeed a strange and unusual time. Old Skip had helped me through the stuggles of boyhood. But his job was far from done.

Narrator says: I was an only child. He was an only dog.

Narrator says: Why in childhood and youth do we wish time to pass so quickly - we wanna grow up so fast - yet as adults we wish just the opposite?

Narrator says: Like all dogs, Skip was colorblind. He made friends easily with people of all races and origins. The town was segregated back then, but as we know, dogs are a whole lot smarter than people.

Narrator says: In my life, I find that memories of the spirit linger and sweeten long after memories of the brain had faded.

Vilmer says: If it's on tape, it has to be true.

Bernice Pruitt says: At home we had a pet skunk. Mama used to call it Justin Matisse. Do you think that's just a coincidence? All day long she would to scream, "You stink Justin Matisse" Then one day she just picked up a club and killed it.

Justin Matisse says: Now that's a sad story.

Bernice Pruitt says: If you liked the skunk, which we didn't.

Justin Matisse says: Dancin's just a conversation between two people. Talk to me.

Narrator says: Old Skip was eleven, and feeble with arthritis, but he never lost that old devilish look in his eye. He made my room his own. Came across an old photo of him, not long ago. His little face, with the long snout sniffin' at somethin' in the air. His tail was straight out, pointin'. Eyes were flashin' in some momentary excitement. He always loved to be rubbed on the back of his neck. And when I did it, he'd yawn and he's stretch, reach out to me with his paws, as if he was tryin' to embrace me. I received a transatlantic call one day. 'Skip died,' my Daddy said. He and my mama wrapped him in my baseball jacket. 'They buried him out under our elm tree,' they said. That wasn't totally true. For he really lay buried in my heart.

Narrator says: I almost lost old Skip that day. Even as he was sleepin' on the operatin' table, he was still teachin' me. That day, I became a young man. Why, in childhood and youth, we wish time to pass so quickly. We wanna grow up so fast. Yet, as adults, as we wish just the opposite.

Justin Matisse says: Why don't you go down and get dressed, you'll feel better? You gotta feel despressed lookin' like that.

Dean McCoppen says: ....Yeh..

Dean McCoppen says: Yeh..

Dean McCoppen says: YEH?

Train Engineer #1 says: ......alright

Train Engineer #1 says: ...alright

Denise says: Mmm, oh he's delicious, isn't he? I can serve coffee on that ass.

John says: Do you have to be so vulgar about men, like they're pieces of meat?

Denise says: Sorry John, I forgot you're sensitive about your flat ass.

John says: You know, Denise, that's why you're not married.

Sharon says: [clears throat]

John says: Women act like men, then they complain men don't want them.

Denise says: Oh, is that why? Oh, ok, 'cause I thought it was something different. I thought it was because I thought I deserve the best. And he's out there, he's just with all the wrong women. And let me be clear, after centuries of men looking at my tits, instead of eyes, and pinching my ass, instead of shaking my hand, I now have the divine right to stare at a man's backside with vulgar, cheap, appreciation if I want to.

Sharon says: Well said.

Daniel says: I thought so.

Justin Matisse says: Why don't you get down and get dressed?. You gotta feel impressive lookin' like that.

Justin Matisse says: Why don't you go down and get dressed, you'll feel better? You gotta feel depressed looking like that.

Daniel says: we're so arrogant aren't we? we're so afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. we don't know that it is a privilege it is to grow old with someone, someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder, or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair. it's sweet . . .

Daniel says: We're so arrogant, aren't we? So afraid of age, we do everything we ... We don't realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair.

Daniel says: What do women want?

Holly says: We have no idea what we want.

Dean McCoppen says: You came here just in time. This rich cat, some industrialist wanted him for the lobby of his company. Whipped out his checkbook right on the spot. I said, "You get him for the rest of your life, but, what, I have to give him up the minute I give birth? Give me time to cut the umbilical, man."
