      Tom McGowan

      Highest Rated: 93% Ghost World (2001)

      Lowest Rated: 38% Heavyweights (1995)

      Birthday: Jul 26, 1959

      Birthplace: Belmar, New Jersey, USA

      A portly, light-haired actor, Tom McGowan first garnered attention in 1991 when he was chosen to replace Ron Silver in Boston as the lead of "La Bete," a stage play written in verse. He made his entrance and delivered a twenty-five minute soliloquy in rhyming couplets that made critics and audiences pay attention. While the show failed to run, McGowan earned a Tony Award nomination as Best Actor. Having trained at the prestigious Yale School of Drama, appeared with the Yale Rep and landed work with the New York Shakespeare Festival, the actor appeared to be poised to have a successful stage career. Instead, he turned to TV where he made his mark in low- brow sitcoms.
