Birthplace: Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA

Sporting scraggly hair and sideburns, unkempt clothes and an array of trucker hats with infamous slogans like "World Champion," actor and comedian Judah Friedlander developed an overconfident loser persona as he became a hit in comedy clubs, on late night television and - perhaps most notably - in playing Frank, the head writer on the fictional show-within-a-show sitcom, "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-13). His portrayal of the television comedy writer as the penultimate slacker, who seemingly has seen every bad movie ever made - twice - was a perfect fit for the acclaimed show's delicate mix of pointed realism and over-the-top comedy. Meanwhile, Friedlander suddenly found himself going from relatively unknown commodity to recognized primetime player, opening possibilities previously unattainable. The witty hats he wore each week also helped the unique talent stand out.
