Nate Mooney (born January 26, 1972) is an American actor best known for his recurring role as Ryan McPoyle on the FX comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Early life and career[edit]

Mooney was born in the United States and attended Franklin High School in Franklin, Wisconsin, graduating in 1990. He attended Iowa State University and received his BS in Aerospace Engineering. He appeared on various television series, including Breakout Kings, Grey's Anatomy, Nip/Tuck and others.[1] He played the role of Lurvy in the film Charlotte's Web.

Mooney gained his popularity by playing the role of Ryan McPoyle, the creepy brother of Liam McPoyle and Margaret McPoyle, on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Ryan is a comedic dimwit and is often rebuked for making dumb comments to his brother, such as offering to split a large sum of money (or clams) fifty-fifty-fifty to accommodate three people.

He also has a small part in one episode of Breaking Bad's third season as an arms dealer betrayed by the cousins attempting to murder Hank.
