Nathan "Nate" Corddry (born September 8, 1977) is an American actor best known for his television roles on programs such as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The Daily Show, United States of Tara and Harry's Law. He played Private First Class Loudmouth in the HBO miniseries The Pacific. He is the younger brother of actor/comedian Rob Corddry.

Life and career[edit]

Corddry was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts. He is the son of Robin (née Sullivan) and Steven Corddry, who was a Massachusetts Port Authority official.[1][2] After graduating from Weymouth High School in 1995,[3] Corddry went to Colby-Sawyer College where he majored in Communications.[citation needed]

Corddry's older brother, Rob Corddry had worked as a well-known correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart since 2002. On October 4, 2005, Nate joined the show as a correspondent. Nate and Rob appeared together in various pieces on the show, including a segment called "Brother vs. Brother" on February 21, 2006. In the "Brother vs. Brother" segment they formally debated each other on the issue of Big Brother, but their debate quickly turned into immature namecalling and trying to beat each other up, until it was stopped by host Jon Stewart. Both Corddry brothers left the program in mid-2006.

Corddry has appeared on television programs such as 30 Rock, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Guiding Light. In 2005, Corddry appeared in a television commercial for Radio Shack. He has also done commercial work for Coors Brewing Company, Verizon Communications, Xbox, Dunkin' Donuts, and NYCremembers.org. Corddry trained at the Williamstown Theater Festival, and recently spent almost a year traveling on the road as an actor in the Broadway touring production of The Graduate.[citation needed]

In 2006, Corddry was cast in the Aaron Sorkin comedy-drama series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip alongside Matthew Perry and Amanda Peet, which began airing in September 2006 and was canceled in May 2007. The show was a weekly drama set behind the scenes of a fictitious Saturday Night Live-esque television program called Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Corddry played a character named Tom Jeter who was a writer and performer for the show-within-a-show.

Corddry played the recurring role of Gene Stuart on the Showtime series The United States of Tara. He played "The Chief of Staff" in the live-action film version of Yogi Bear, released 17 December 2010. He co-starred in the legal comedy-drama series Harry's Law which was cancelled after its second season. Corddry voice-acted "Zed" in the Disney XD show, Tron: Uprising, which began in May 2012.

In February 2014, Corddry and his brother featured alongside Breaking Bad actor Matt L. Jones in the CollegeHumor-produced video for the Guided by Voices single, "Planet Score".
