Biography

Corrigan was born in The Bronx, New York to an Irish-American father and a Puerto Rican mother. After studying at The Actors Studio, Corrigan made his film debut in 1989 in Lost Angels starring Donald Sutherland and Adam Horovitz. He also had a small role in Goodfellas as the brother of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta). After appearing in the poorly-received film Billy Bathgate, Corrigan turned his attention towards small-budget films, starting with Zebrahead. During the independent film boom of the 1990s, he built a career playing quirky, unconventional characters in films such as True Romance, Living in Oblivion and Walking and Talking. He made a rare appearance in a big-budget blockbuster film with a small role in Bad Boys. Corrigan made his television series debut as a cast member of the short-lived Rhea Perlman sitcom, Pearl.

Corrigan wrote the script for the 1997 film Kicked in the Head. The film starred Corrigan, Michael Rapaport, Linda Fiorentino, Lili Taylor and was executive produced by Martin Scorsese. The film was panned by critics and did poorly at the box office.

Corrigan became well-known for his role as the slacker Eddie Finnerty on the sitcom Grounded for Life which ran for five seasons. After the show's cancellation, he returned to appearing in smaller film projects with the exception of a role in Martin Scorsese's The Departed as the drug dealing cousin of Leonardo DiCaprio's character. Since the success of that film, he began to appear more regularly in high-profile films. He had roles in the Judd Apatow-produced films Superbad as the violent owner of the house where Jonah Hill's and Michael Cera's characters attempt to steal alcohol and in Pineapple Express as one of the main villain's henchmen. He also appeared in Ridley Scott's American Gangster as an informant for Russell Crowe's character. Corrigan was also in the movie The Last Winter 2006, in which he played "Motor" a mechanic. He stars also 2010 in the John Landis produced thriller film Some Guy Who Kills People[1], which is directed by Jack Perez.[2]
