Born to a father with Irish and English ancestry and to a mother from a Jewish family with German and Polish ancestry.

Made his stage debut in 1980 opposite his father, James Broderick, in a production of On Valentine's Day in New York City. Turned down the role of Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties to spend time with his ailing father. Pleaded guilty to the charge of careless driving after a 1987 car accident in Northern Ireland that killed two women. Appeared alongside future wife Sarah Jessica Parker on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in 1996. His sister, Janet, a church minister, conducted his wedding ceremony in 1997. After marriage, continued to dine with his mother at her house every Sunday evening until her death in 2003. Received rave reviews, and a Tony nomination, for his performance in the Broadway musical The Producers, which opened in 2001; reprised his role in the 2005 film adaptation. Was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006. The couple's twin daughters were born via a surrogate in 2009.
