Highest Rated: 95% The Artist (2011)

Lowest Rated: 20% Holiday Hell (2019)

Birthday: Apr 17, 1963

Birthplace: Wilmette, Illinois, USA

The younger brother of actor-comedian Bill Murray, Joel Murray was a regular presence on television and in the occasional feature beginning in the late 1980s, playing hapless sidekicks and overgrown adolescents on series like "Dharma & Greg" (ABC, 1997-2002) and "Still Standing" (CBS, 2002-06) until gaining a stellar showcase for his dramatic talents on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-15). Murray's hangdog visage and understated delivery, which had served him well in comic roles, underscored the sadness of his character, Freddy Rumsen, whose yeoman talents could not help him overcome a powerful alcohol addiction. The critical praise generated by "Mad Men" helped Murray land more nuanced parts on "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011- ) and his first feature lead in the black comedy "God Bless America." These and other turns helped to mint Joel Murray as a burgeoning dramatic actor on par with his older brother's successful second-act career.
