Lived in England for a few years. He made some appearances on TV before acting in a movie. His costar in four of his movies ("Empire Records," "Love and a 45," "The Low Life," and "Dazed and Confused") was Renee Zellweger (see below for other info) He had a role in a TV mini series, "The Last Don," with Kirstie Allie and Joe Mantegna. When he appeared as Slater in "Dazed and Confused" he became well known with the slacker and grunge crowd because of the way he had to look in that movie. The long hair in the movie wasn't real, it was a wig attached to his hat, since he had short hair. He was in a movie with Robert DeNiro, called "Flawless." He was in ths indie project "Sunset Strip" with Jared Leto and his "Dazed" friend, Adam Goldberg. He is well respected by his fellow thespian peers. He dated Joey Lauren Adams for alittle, while making "Dazed and Confused." He travels frequently. One of his "Dazed" costars described him as a "loud, bawling Irish drinker" she meant it as a good thing. He had a nude scene in his '92 film, "Fathers & Sons." He's only done one non-independent movie. It's rumored that he makes up alittle dialogue to his roles, especially in "Dazed and Confused!" He likes to practice acting with friends. He is a good chess player. He's worked with Adam Goldberg twice in "D & C" and "Sunset Strip." He liked making "Empire Records." He is good friends with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and their group. His father is fully Irish. He now stars in the weekly hit show, "CSI: Miami!" When he was little he could be an angel, but also Hell on wheels, and he always would come up with wierd things. He is set to work with Robin again in the 2004 movie, "A Whale in Montana!" Drives a Ducati motorcycle. Reportedly likes to party and go clubbing a lot. When he was little he used to go to Summer camp with his siblings. He has an older brother named Brendon, and a sister, Siobahn. Says he doesn't know about most of the stuff done on "CSI: Miami." For almost all his major roles he has gotten praised by critics-even if they hated the movie!

Rory was born in Syracuse, New York, but moved to England for a few years where he grew up! He moved back to the States and went to highschool in New York City. He took drama classes at NYC's LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts. After that his first acting role in 1989 was a docudrama on drugs on "Saturday Night with Connie Chung" Then in 1990, a guest appearence in an episode of "H.E.L.P" His first movie role was in, "A Kiss Before Dying" with the now famous Matt Dillon. Rory is now 31 years old. He has been in a many movies for his young age. His more known roles were as the philosophical, Lucas in "Empire Records," the stoner, Slater in "Dazed and Confused," and the criminal druggie, Billy Mack in "Love and a 45." He lived with Renee for years (approx late 1993-1995), but then something happened and they broke up alittle after the filming of "Empire Records". I also found this out, he is NOT married, I repeat he is not married to a girl named Rebecca Columbus, he has never even heard of her! It was a big rumor back in 1998. With a short break, he now has more movies coming out that are sure gonna rock!

He is not very well known, but is a great actor and cool guy. Hopefully I'll be able to get more info on him someday! And of course I think he makes a great couple with Renee.
