Lieutenant Jim Dangle, "RENO 911!"
Thomas Lennon, originally from Chicago, began his career as a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts' experimental theater wing. It was here that he co-founded the sketch comedy troupe "The State." The group went on to critical success with their self-titled hit series on MTV, where he was one of its stars, producers and writers. "The State" was nominated for a 1995 CableACE award for Best Comedy Series and ran for three seasons.
Lennon then created, produced and starred in COMEDY CENTRAL's "Viva Variety," which was an instant critical smash for the new network. The show garnered a CableACE nomination for Best Comedy Series in 1997 and, like "The State," enjoyed three successful seasons. Lennon has appeared in the films "Memento," "Out Cold," "Le Divorce," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "A Guy Thing," "The Godfather of Green Bay" and "Heights."
Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have written the scripts for "Taxi," "Herbie: Fully Loaded," and "The Pacifier," "Let's Go to Prison," "Night at the Museum," "RENO 911!: Miami" and "Balls of Fury."
Lennon currently resides in Los Angeles and is the co-creator, executive producer, and star of COMEDY CENTRAL's "RENO 911!"
