Jim Piddock

As a writer, Piddock has recently had two very diverse screenplays produced: The Man, an action-comedy starring Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy, and A Different Loyalty, a romantic thriller starring Sharon Stone and Rupert Everett. Other film writing credits include the thrillers Traces Of Red and One Good Turn. He has also written and co-produced a sitcom for the BBC called Too Much Sun, and several pilots for U.S. television.

As an actor, Piddock starred in several Broadway shows -- Noises Off, Present Laughter, and Design For Living -- before moving to Los Angeles.

Notable film appearances include Austin Powers In Goldmember, Independence Day, Multiplicity, Best in Show, Lethal Weapon 2, A Mighty Wind, A Different Loyalty, Love For Rent, and See This Movie.

On television, Piddock appeared regularly on Mad About You, The Drew Carey Show, and was in the award-winning HBO mini-series From The Earth To The Moon. He also played Prince Charles in the CBS mini-series The Women Of Windsor, which he believes may have inadvertently been his most comedic performance to date.
