Steven James Zahn is an American actor and comedian.
Steve Zahn (Reality Bites, Friends, That Thing You Do, Sahara, Saving Silverman, Dallas Buyers Club, Suburbia...) is so fun onscreen that he's kinda the best thing about every movie he's in. Or at least every scene. Last spring, Steve was in town for the Brooklyn Film Festival, where his short film, I'm No Holiday, written and directed by his friend and fellow actor Rick Gomez, was screening. So I met him in Williamsburg. We set up the voice recorder. And later, a camera. (You can see him and me do a funny video with random questions at YouTube.com/reallyfamous.) Here's the result. You'll hear about: He laughs at which movies and TV shows I watched to "research" him How Ben Stiller "discovered" him Reality Bites Friends Shattered Glass Saving Silverman Theater acting Bonding with Ethan Hawke The 5 people he still keeps in touch with, which includes a few phenomenal (and famous) actors The timeless magic of That Thing You Do Tom Hanks Face Deals (stay tuned!)
