Life and career
Bornheimer was born in Mishawaka, Indiana. He attended high school at Marian High School in Mishawaka, graduating in 1994. He also went to grade school at St. Monica School in Mishawaka and graduated in 1990. Bornheimer is a founding member of The Curtainbox Theatre Company.
With a string of national commercials, Bornheimer established an "always on TV" reputation with 30-second spots for such national accounts as Geico, Staples, Coors Light, Imodium, Stanley and T-Mobile.
Landing the lead of Sam Briggs on Worst Week, which has since been cancelled, was a breakthrough role for Bornheimer, a newcomer, whose short film and TV career spans less than five years. Bornheimer was reportedly described by one critic as "the new Bob Newhart".
He starred with Alyssa Milano on the TV sitcom Romantically Challenged. The series premiered on ABC on April 19, 2010, but ABC officially cancelled the series on May 16, 2010. He was also featured in episodes of the TV shows Better Off Ted, Breaking Bad, The Office, and Party Down.
More recently, Bornheimer starred in the NBC sitcom Perfect Couples opposite Olivia Munn, Dave Walton, and Hayes MacArthur and in the ABC sitcom Family Tools with J.K. Simmons and Leah Remini. Both shows were cancelled in their first season.
His feature film credits include She's Out of My League, opposite Jay Baruchel and T.J. Miller; You Again with Odette Annable, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lakin, and Kristen Bell; and most recently Bachelorette opposite Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, and James Marsden.
