Breckin Meyer identified his passion for acting when he was 11 years old. He went to grade school with actress Drew Barrymore, who opened up the doors for Breckin to the world of acting by introducing him to her agent later. The contact helped young Breckin to land some television roles and commercials. But the aspiring actor soon joined California State University at Northridge as a student. It was a difficult phase in Breckin’s life as he was torn between the childhood dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher and the acting ambitions of a young man. Eventually, he dropped out of college to pursue a career in movies.
Meyer made his acting debut in 1991 with the movie ‘Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.’ Even though he got back-to-back roles from 1991 to 1995, he was stereotyped as a stoner onscreen. Breckin got his first breakthrough with the teen sensation flick ‘Clueless’ (1995), again a stoner character! He tried to play different characters throughout the ’90s. His major movies in this period include John Carpenter’s ‘Escape from L.A.’ ‘Prefontaine’ (1997), ‘Dancer, Texas Pop. 81’1 (1998), ‘Go’ (1999), and ‘The Insider‘ (1999).
Meyer’s next big breakthrough was the 2000 movie ‘Road Trip’ (2000), in which he played the first full-length lead role. Soon, movies like ‘Kate & Leopold’ (2001), ‘Garfield’ (2004), and ‘Ghosts of Girlfriends Past’ (2009) followed. Breckin joined the popular stop animation sketch comedy series ‘Robot Chicken’ during the mid-2000s as a recurring voice actor and writer. He is also an accomplished drummer and singer. So now you might be wondering what is the next Breckin Meyer movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Breckin Meyer films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Breckin Meyer movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
