Birthday: Jun 17, 1960

Birthplace: Yolo, California, USA

Famous for his role as the loveable nitwit mechanic, Lowell Mather, on the long-running sitcom, "Wings" (NBC, 1990-97), actor Thomas Haden Church overcame being typecast in similar roles by turning out quality performances in acclaimed films like "Sideways" (2004) and major blockbusters like "Spider-Man 3" (2007). In fact, it was his turn as a selfish, washed-up actor in "Sideways" that heralded a big comeback for Church, who previously had fallen off the radar after "Wings" had gone off the air. While on the popular sitcom, he began to segue into features with prominent supporting turns as one of the Clanton brothers killed at the O.K. Corral in "Tombstone" (1993). Church left "Wings" before the show's end to star on his own series, "Ned & Stacey" (Fox, 1995-97) opposite Debra Messing, but the sitcom - despite critical acclaim - was underappreciated by audiences. After co-starring in "The Specials" (2000) and "3000 Miles to Graceland" (2001), Church revived his career with his Oscar-nominated performance in "Sideways," which led to turns in "Idiocracy" (2006), "Smart People" (2008), "Imagine That" (2009) and "Easy A" (2010), as well as voice roles in "Charlotte's Web" (2006) and "Aliens in the Attic" (2009). Despite a few stumbles like "All About Steve" (2009) and "John Carter" (2012), the ever amusing Church maintained his rejuvenated career with one quality turn after another.

Mr. Griffith says: I don't know what your generation's fascination is with documenting your every thought... but I can assure you, they're not all diamonds. "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Who gives a rat's ass?

Miles Raymond says: It tastes like the back of a fucking L.A. school bus. Now they probably didn't de-stem, hoping for some semblance of concentration, crushed it up with leaves and mice, and then wound up with this rancid tar and turpentine bullshit. Fuckin' Raid.

Jack Lapate says: Tastes pretty good to me.

Jack Lapate says: Listen, man. Cammi gets off in an hour, so I was thinking I'd just hang around and have a drink, and make sure she gets home safe.
