Ribisi received an Independent Spirit nomination for his performance in Sam Raimi's "The Gift."

In addition to his numerous film credits, Ribisi also has an impressive list of television guest starring roles on his resume. In 2007, he gained an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for "My Name is Earl." Ribisi also made guest appearances on "The X-Files" and "Friends."
