  Summary  

Dan Finnerty is an American stage and film actor.

  Biography  

 career
He created and is the lead singer of the cult hit group The Dan Band. His Los Angeles show, Dan Finnerty & The Dan Band: I Am Woman, was filmed as a one hour concert special on Cable TV's Bravo channel, directed by McG and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, who then cast him in The Terminal.

Finnerty is best known for his foul-mouthed rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" as the wedding singer at Will Ferrell's wedding in the movie Old School, directed by Todd Phillips, who continued to feature Dan, using him as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the irreverent wedding singer in The Hangover.

He has released The Dan Band Live, the full-length CD of his live show, which Entertainment Weekly dubbed "the hottest ticket in Hollywood." He also released a holiday album called Ho: A Dan Band Xmas. The album consists completely of original Dan Band songs. Songs on the album include "Ho, Ho, Ho" (a smooth R&B Christmas song about a prostitute) "Merry Christmakwanzakah," "Please Don't Bomb Nobody This Holiday," and "I Wanna Rock U Hard This Christmas" whose video featured Florence Henderson from The Brady Bunch making the moves on Santa at a retirement home. The video for "Please Don't Bomb Nobody This Holiday" featured many celebrity cameos, including Sheryl Crow, Christina Applegate, Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussycat Dolls, Kyle Gass from Tenacious D, Neil Patrick Harris, Meg Ryan, Macy Gray, Christopher Guest, among others. They've been the house band on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Pajama Party, and Spike TV's Spike Guys' Choice Awards 2009, and wrote and performed the finale song for the final season of Last Comic Standing as well as numerous appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, and CD USA. He has guest-starred on numerous television shows and he voiced Wallo in Random! Cartoons. Dan was a recurring correspondent on The Jay Leno Show and has continued as a correspondent on the new The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
