Glenn Franklin Howerton III (born April 13, 1976) is an American actor, producer, and screenwriter. He is known for his role as Dennis Reynolds on the FXX comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, for which he is also a writer and executive producer.[1]

Early life

Howerton was born in Japan, the son of American parents Janice and Glenn Franklin Howerton Jr., a fighter pilot.[2] He grew up in Alabama, London, and South Korea. After graduating from Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery, Alabama, he spent two years at New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. He was part of Group 29 of the Juilliard School's Drama Division (1996–2000),[3] where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.[4] While earning his degree, he worked as a drama teacher at French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts in Hancock, New York.[citation needed]


In 2002, Howerton starred as Corey Howard in the ill-fated That '80s Show, and a year later went on to guest star on ER as Dr. Nick Cooper in 2003. He had small roles in the films Must Love Dogs (2005), Serenity (2005), Two Weeks (2006), and The Strangers (2008). He also appeared as a nurse in Crank (2006), and reprised the role in its 2009 sequel, Crank: High Voltage. He planned to be executive producing on the comedy show Boldly Going Nowhere with his It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creators, but the show has since been shelved. Howerton had a recurring voice role on The Cleveland Show as Ernie Krinklesac, as well as recurring roles on the Fox comedy series The Mindy Project and the FX dark comedy series Fargo. He starred in the 2013 comedy film Coffee Town. Occasionally, he plays with the band The Crash tones.

Personal life

On September 8, 2009, Howerton married actress Jill Latiano, who guest starred on the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode "The D.E.N.N.I.S. System" two months later. In 2011, Latiano gave birth to their first son, Miles.[5] The couple had a second son they named Isley Ray in August 2014.[6]
