Kirstie

Christopher McDonald

Christopher McDonald is one of the hardest working actors in show business, having appeared in close to 100 films, including Requiem for a Dream, The Perfect Storm, Quiz Show and, perhaps most notably, as the nefarious Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore opposite Adam Sandler. McDonald has also worked heavily in television, with roles on shows including Boardwalk Empire, Cracking Up, Law & Order, Happy Endings, and Veronica's Closet, alongside Kirstie Alley. And now McDonald and Alley will reunite for the premiere episode of TV Land's new series Kirstie, as he plays Jeffrey Shepard, an actor who stars alongside Maddie Banks in the play Worst Case Scenario. Born in New York City, McDonald┬╣s first big break came in 1982 when he scored the role of Goose McKenzie in Grease 2, a film which was also one of the first credits for a young Michelle Pfeiffer. This led to parts in films including Thelma and Louise, Dutch and Grumpy Old Men. His recent work includes the films Barry Munday, Not Fade Away and The Collection. Most impressively however, McDonald appeared in a 1978 episode of The Dating Game as one of three eligible bachelors. Sadly, he was not selected for a date.
