Steve Zahn stars in "Treme" on HBO as Davis McAlary.

On the big screen, Steve Zahn stars in "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules" as Frank Heffley, reprising the role from the original movie, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid."

A versatile actor with extensive credits, Steve Zahn has received critical praise for his work on both stage and screen. His standout performance in "Happy, Texas" garnered him a Grand Jury Special Actor Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and an Independent Spirit Best Actor Award. His recent starring role in "Rescue Dawn" opposite Christian Bale for director Werner Herzog prompted The New York Times to call him a "revelation" and led him to an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Zahn's film work includes "Management," opposite Jennifer Aniston, "A Perfect Getaway," "The Great Buck Howard," alongside Tom Hanks and John Malkovich, and "Night Train." Television credits include "Comanche Moon," with Val Kilmer and Rachel Griffiths, and "Monk," as Tony Shaloub's half brother.

Zahn received critical acclaim for his scene-stealing portrayal of Glen Michaels in Stephen Soderbergh's "Out of Sight," and for his heartbreaking turn as a drug-addicted father in Penny Marshall's "Riding in Cars with Boys." His breakthrough role came as the lead guitarist for a one-hit rock band in Tom Hanks' "That Thing You Do!" Additional film credits include "Strange Wilderness," "Sahara," "Chicken Little" as the voice of Runt, "Bandidas," "Suburbia," reprising the role he created off-Broadway, "Shattered Glass," "Daddy Daycare," "National Security," "Hamlet," "Joy Ride," "Saving Silverman," "Safe Men," "You've Got Mail," "The Object of My Affection," "Speak" and the voices of Archie the Bear in "Dr. Doolittle 2" and Monty the Cat in "Stuart Little" and "Stuart Little 2."

A native of Marshall, Minnesota, Zahn trained for two years at the prestigious American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, before moving to New York and being cast in Tommy Tune's national tour of "Bye Bye Birdie." Appearing opposite Ehtan Hawke in "Sophistry" at the renowned Playwrights Horizons, Zahn caught the eye of director Ben Stiller, who cast him in Zahn's feature-film debut, "Reality Bites."
