An exceptionally versatile character actor and occasional lead in features and television, Justin Theroux tackled both comedy and drama with equal deftness throughout his career, and proved himself a talented writer as well by penning the scripts for hits like "Tropic Thunder" (2008) and "Iron Man 2" (2010). A handsome actor who seemed to prefer offbeat portrayals over leading man roles, he began his onscreen career in indies like "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996) before moving effortless into Hollywood titles like "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" (1997). He was adept at playing slick, soulless professionals, like an arrogant film director in David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr." (2001) and a business friend of Christian Bale's deranged Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho" (2000), but could also play thoughtful, caring men, like his cerebral suitor who charmed Rachel Griffiths on "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05). Theroux's strongest suit, however, was offbeat comedy, and he mined that field on numerous occasions throughout his career in features like "Zoolander" (2001) and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" (2003). He made a modest debut as a director on the indie drama "Dedication" (2007), but found greater success as a writer on the over-the-top comedy "Tropic Thunder" and the blockbuster "Iron Man 2." His dual status as favored actor and screenwriter made Theroux a genuine hyphenate. His marriage to Jennifer Aniston, whom he met on the set of the David Wain comedy "Wanderlust" (2012), threatened to overshadow his work, especially following their February 2018 separation, but his work in films ranging from "The Girl on the Train" (2016) to "The Lego Ninjago Movie" (2017) kept him onscreen as well as in the gossip columns.
