You know him as:
The mysterious Sean Garrity/Lawrence Wooley/Professor Professorson on "Community" and the mysterious, bowling alley owner/fixer Sam Weiss on "Fringe."
Why we like him:
Corrigan has been around forever, but it's only recently that we've come to fully appreciate him. This year really helped us move past thinking of his role as "that ugly guy" Bill in "Walking and Talking" every time we see him. Middle age has imparted to him acting that falls short of gravitas but goes well beyond what's usually called for in any given script. We kind of wish we had a Sam Weiss around to help us with some of our problems. They don't even come close to what Olivia has going on so it should be a cakewalk. Sure, his "Community" character still creeps us out, but he's supposed to.
Where else you've seen him:
An indie film staple of the '90s, he played Eddie Finnerty for five years on the comedy series "Grounded for Life" and had a memorable turn during the second season of "Damages."
