Matthew Lyn Lillard (born January 24, 1970) is an American actor, voice actor, director, and producer. He is known for his roles as Stu Macher in Scream, Stevo in SLC Punk, Chip from Serial Mom, and the voice of Shaggy Rogers in the Scooby-Doo franchise.

Early life[edit]

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


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 in Ghoulies 3: Ghoulies Go to College (1991) and then played in the black comedy Serial Mom in 1994. In 1995 he was cast in five films, including Hackers, which featured a group of high school kids who thwart a multimillion-dollar corporate extortion conspiracy. In 1996, he was cast as Stu Macher in the horror film Scream. He also played Stevo in the independent film SLC Punk!, and supporting character Dennis Rafkin 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. When Casey Kasem, who had voiced the character from the show's debut in 1969, retired due to declining health in 2009, Lillard was chosen as his replacement and voiced Shaggy in the two subsequent animated series, Mystery Incorporated and Be Cool Scooby-Doo!.[4] In 2011, Lillard guest starred on the Fox series House.[5] In 2011, he produced and directed his first feature film, Fat Kid Rules the World, based on the K. L. Going book of the same name.[6] Later that year, he appeared in the comedy-drama film The Descendants.[7]

In 2012, Lillard guest starred in the Criminal Minds episode "The Apprenticeship". The following year, he played the role of Daniel Frye on the American TV series The Bridge. In 2014, Lillard starred as Peter in the animated film Under Wraps, alongside Brooke Shields and Drake Bell.

Theatre groups[edit]

Matthew Lillard has founded several theatre groups since 1990.

  • Mean Streets Ensemble (1990–1991)
  • Summoners Ensemble (1994–1997)
  • Blue Sphere Alliance (1997–present)[8]

Personal life[edit]

On 12 August 2000, Lillard married Heather Helm, with whom he has three children. In October 2005, he participated in a Dungeons & Dragons tournament, against members of the Quest Club Gaming Organization, at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.[9][10]

They live in Los Angeles.[8]
