Maybe you have seen Ron Livingston in the cult favorite, "Office Space" or from his role in the miniseries "Band of Brothers," but this American actor is an ivy leaguer. Like most celebrities, they went on to get their higher education before pursuing their acting career. And at the same time, took in experiences, classes, projects and training to help them hone their craft.

Born in 1967, Ron Livingston grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He attended Marion High School in Iowa and later on attended Yale University. From Yale, KR CR Tv has it that he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. He majored in two subjects, Theater and English.

He made his first acting gig at the Theatre Cedar Rapids. He then moved to Chicago and joined the local theater scene.

Afterwards, he starred in Dolly Parton's "Straight Talk." He later on earned his major movie debut in "Swingers." And then his best known work in "Office Space" earned him popularity and praise. In the comedy cult classic, he co-stars with Jennifer Aniston.

He also joined HBO's "Band of Brothers" as Captain Lewis Nixon. But those were not his only roles.

Although he didn't make it big like most actors, he made sure to keep busy. He became involved in many movies and television shows.
