Harry Connick, Jr. Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Songwriter
  • Born: Sep 11, 1967
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Harry Connick Jr. is, first and foremost, known for his abilities behind a piano and for his smooth, baritone vocals. Connick is a prodigious performer, having released some 15 albums by the age of 30. He was approached by [[Performer~P107886~Rob Reiner~robreiner]] to put together some music for the 1989 film [[Feature~V54134~When Harry Met Sally~whenharrymetsally]]. He brought together an orchestra and covered many popular big-band era songs. An album was put together and prompted a whirlwind tour that helped the album sell amazingly well. Because of this success and Connick's Aw Shucks personality, film appearances were inevitable. His first was in 1990's [[Feature~V32162~Memphis Belle~memphisbelle]] and he has consistantly worked in film since then, most notably as [[Performer~P66596~Will Smith~willsmith]]'s wisecracking friend in [[Feature~V136197~Independence Day~independenceday]], and in an unexpected turn as the mimicking, murdurous psychopath in Copycat (1995). The late '90s found Connick in larger roles that were a testament to his versatility, including Hope Floats (1998) and Wayward Son (1999). In 2000, Connick brought in the new millennium with a role in My Dog Skip. In 1994, Connick married model Jill Goodacre and together they have two daughters. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi
