British actor, comedian, screenwriter and author Cleese, born in 1939, is probably one of the most recognizable faces, not to mention really tall people, in pop culture. He was one of the actor/writers on the groundbreaking, or at least influential, comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969-1974), not to mention numerous Monty Python movies, including Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1974), The Life of Brian (1979), The Meaning of Life (1983) and Monty Python: Live at the Hollywood Bowl, released on videotape in 1982. Britcom fans will probably also recognize him as frazzled hotel owner Basil Fawlty in Fawlty Towers (1975-1979). Cleese cut his teeth on comedy with the Cambridge Footlights Society while earning a law degree at Cambridge University. His first of over 50 writing credits was on David Frost's That Was the Week That Was (1962-1963), and he made his first of over 110 acting credits in 1968. He's developed into a respected actor since then, with appearances as frustrated barrister Archie Leach in A Fish Called Wanda (1988), gadget freak Q in the James Bond film Die Another Day (2002), King Harold in Shrek 2 (2004) and Shrek the Third (2007) and recurring roles in numerous TV series. Harry Potter fans may also recognize him as Nearly Headless Nick in Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone (2001), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004). Along the way, he's collected a shared Oscar nomination for writing in A Fish Called Wanda and two British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards for Fawlty Towers and A Fish Called Wanda, not to mention an Emmy Award for an appearance on Cheers (1987).
