Giovanni Ribisi was born on December 17, 1974 in Los Angeles. As his mother was a manager for actors and writers, he already started acting at a young age. He studied acting at The Beverly Hills Playhouse. He appeared in small roles on a lot of well-known TV shows like Married With Children, My Two Dads, Blossom, The Wonder Years, Ellen, NYPD Blue, Walker, Texas Ranger and the X-Files. His big breakthrough came when he appeared in Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. He has since appeared in many movies and TV shows including Lost in Translation, Friends, Cold Mountain, Public Enemies, Avatar, Ted and Gangster Squad.
My favorite roles are those in Boiler Room, The Rum Diary and Middle Men.
