Charlie Day’s comedic talent in both film and television has garnered him a loyal following among critics and fans all over the world.
Returning for his 13th season, Day currently stars as the hapless “Charlie Kelly” on the FXX hit original series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He also serves as Executive Producer and Writer of the show, which he created in collaboration with friends Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton. Currently, Day and his producing partners, McElhenney and Howerton at RCG Productions, are producing multiple pilots and series, including The Cool Kids for FOX. The Cool Kids is a multi-camera comedy about a rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun – because, at their age, what do they really have to lose.
Before Sunny, Day had a recurring role on NBC’s Third Watch and FOX’s comedy Luis. He has also starred in feature films Going the Distance, Horrible Bosses, Monsters University, Pacific Rim, and The Lego Movie. Also, Day has recently been seen reprising his role as “Dr. Newton Geiszler” in Pacific Rim: Uprising and in Drew Pierce’s Hotel Artemis.
Beginning his acting career onstage, Day performed for four years at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and went on to play the lead role in Dead End at the Huntington Theatre in Boston.
Day was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Rhode Island. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Mary Elizabeth, and their son.
