John Carroll Lynch spent his childhood in Denver, where he attended Regis Jesuit High School. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at The Catholic University of America to study theater, from which he graduated magna cum laude with a BFA degree in 1986. Very soon afterwards, he began to work at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, with which he played in and toured with for the next several years..

John’s professional acting career really came to notice in 1993, when he made his debut appearance on the big screen in a small role in Donald Petrie’s film “Grumpy Old Men”, but he was noticed by other directors when he appeared in the role of Norm Gunderson in the 1996 film “Fargo”. Since then his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth and popularity. The same year was his breakthrough year as he starred in such film titles as “Shaughnessy”, “The Fan”, and “Feeling Minnesota”. In 1997, he landed the role of Stan Olber in a film entitled “Volcano”, and was selected to play Steve Carey in the TV series “The Drew Carey Show”, which lasted until 2004. By the end of the decade, he was cast as Martin Lynch in “Mercury Rising” (1998), playing Jack Irwin in “Anywhere But Here” (1999), and guest-starred in the TV series “The West Wing” (2000), among others.

The new millennium didn’t change too much for John, as he continued to line up successes – his first memorable role came in 2001, when he played Mr. Livingston in the film “Bubble Boy”, which was followed by the role of Jack Field in the 2002 film “The Good Girl”, starring alongside Jennifer Aniston. In the following year, he was chosen to portray Mayor Garrett Shaw in the TV series “The Brotherhood Of Poland, New Hampshire”, which lasted only a season, but in the same year he starred as Sheriff Ryan in the film “Gothika”. In 2005, he appeared in the TV series “Carnivàle”, playing Varlyn Stroud, after which he made a few more memorable appearances, including the role of Steve Sharpe in the TV series “Close To Home” (2005-2006), and portraying Arthur Leigh Allen in David Fincher’s film “Zodiac” (2007). Subsequently, John won the role of Captain James Embry in the TV series “K-Ville” (2007-2008), played Walter in the 2009 film “Love Happens”, and appeared as Deputy Warden McPherson in Martin Scorsese’s film “Shutter Island” (2010), starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. All of these roles added a considerable amount to his net worth.

In 2011, John landed a role in the film “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”, and later that year won the role of Bud Morris in the TV series entitled “Body Of Proof” (2011-2012). In 2013, he portrayed Rory in “Highland Park”, played Frank in “The Pretty One”, and appeared as Will Hayes in the TV series “Do No Harm”. To speak further about his acting career, John won the role of John Wayne Gacy/Twisty the Clown in the TV series “American Horror Story” (2014-2016), starred as Tom Jessup in the 2015 film “Ted 2”, directed by Seth MacFarlane, and most recently, he was cast as Mac McDonald in the film “The Founder” (2016), and as James Rivington in the TV series “TURN: Washington’s Spies” (2016-2017); he is currently filming the TV series “Crawford”, which will certainly increase his net worthtoo.

1The fear that you come to a show called 'American Horror Story' with is yours. That being said, I'm glad people are afraid, and I hope that I'm contributing to their fear. I'm really not afraid of my own darkness anymore. I'm not afraid of what I'm capable of.
2Two actors who have different motivations and skill sets can work together and be magic. Charles Grodin and Robert DeNiro technically couldn't work more differently, and yet they made 'Midnight Run,' which is a genius comedy.
3As an actor, I've given up judgment of evil, as long as it's human evil - we have to see ourselves for what we really are, and we're capable of horrific things.
4My crazy fear is I'm always afraid my keys are going to fall down a subway grate when I walk over it. I'm afraid they're going to jump out of my pocket and fall down. Isn't that stupid?
5I never think of myself as lumbering, but I guess I am. I forget how huge I am sometimes. I've seen movies where I'm with a group of people, and I'm like, 'God, I'm just so gargantuanly bigger than anyone else there.'
6Evil is important for us to look at, in my opinion, only insofar as it makes us look at our own actions and make us wonder, 'Am I participating in some kind of human evil that I really should stop doing?'
7Psychological horror I've always appreciated, like 'Rosemary's Baby.' The slasher movies and the grotesque movies are the ones that I've really been off for a while.
8'Fargo' was the turnaround for me, in terms of film, because it was a part; it wasn't a line.
9Is fame without purpose and is fame without talent really where we are now? People used to be famous for what they did. Now, they're just famous.
10Breathing is always key in any character. When you have a character with no voice, that makes it even more important.
11You can have the most wonderful motives for what you do, but if what you do harms other people, you're fooling yourself.
12I don't go to horror movies. I walked out of 'The Exorcist,' man.
1Has two step-children.
2Appears in three films with Jake Gyllenhaal: Bubble Boy (2001), The Good Girl (2002) and Zodiac (2007).
3John is an Alumni of Regis Jesuit High School, now located in Aurora, Colorado but he graduated in 1981 when the campus was located in north-west Denver.
4Was first choice to play Arthur Leigh Allen in Zodiac (2007). David Fincher saw his cold performance in Gothika (2003) and decided to cast him.
5Former member of the Guthrie Theater Acting Company.
6Graduated from The Catholic University of America, B.F.A., Theatre program. He was Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa. May 10, 1986.
7During the 1990s, John was a company member of the world-renowned Guthrie Theater Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as being a mentor for the graduate acting program of the University of Minnesota.
