Matthew Lyn Lillard (born January 24, 1970) is an American actor, director and producer. He is well known for his roles as Stu Macher in Scream, Stevo in SLC Punk (awarded Best Actor at the Mar del Plata Film Festival), and Shaggy Rogers in the Scooby-Doo film series - he has taken over providing the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon series since the reboot Mystery Incorporated. Lillard made a dramatic turn in Alexander Payne's critically acclaimed comedy-drama The Descendants.

Early life[edit]

Lillard was born in Lansing, Michigan, the son of Paula and Jeffrey Lillard.[1][2] He grew up in Tustin, California.[3] He has a younger sister, Amy. He attended Foothill High school in Santa Ana, California, and later the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California, with fellow actor Paul Rudd. He also attended the theater school, Circle in the Square, in New York City.


While still in high school, Lillard was co-host of a short-lived TV show titled SK8-TV. After high school, he was hired as an extra for Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go to College (1991). From there he was cast in 1995 into one of five films that year Hackers which featured a group of high school aged kids that thwart a multi-million dollar corporate extortion conspiracy.

In 1996, Lillard was cast in the horror film Scream as Stu Macher. He also played Stevo in the independent film SLC Punk!, and played a secondary role in Thirteen Ghosts. Lillard was cast as Shaggy Rogers in the 2002 live-action Scooby-Doo film, a role he later reprised in the 2004 sequel Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Although he did not continue the role in the later live-action films in the series, Lillard has portrayed Shaggy in animated productions since 2009, officially taking over the role from previous Shaggy voice actor Casey Kasem.[4]

In 2011, Lillard guest-starred on the Fox series House.[5]

In July and August 2011, Lillard produced and directed his first feature film, Fat Kid Rules the World in Seattle. It is based on the K. L. Going book of the same name.[6]

In 2011, Lillard appeared in the Alexander Payne film The Descendants.[7]

In 2012, Lillard guest starred on the CBS series Criminal Minds in the episode "The Apprenticeship", directed by Rob Bailey.

Shaggy Rogers[edit]

Lillard has played the Scooby-Doo character Shaggy Rogers in various forms since the first live-action movie in 2002 all the way to voicing him in the most recent television series.

Personal life[edit]

In 2000, Lillard married Heather Helm, with whom he has three children. In October 2005, Lillard participated in a Dungeons & Dragons Minis tournament against members of the Quest Club Gaming Organization at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.[8][9]
