Biography[edit]

Keeslar was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the son of Fred Keeslar and Ann Ferguson, who divorced in 1977.[1]

At eighteen, Matt Keeslar moved from Adrian, Michigan to New York City to attend the Juilliard School. The Juilliard faculty had selected him to fill one of twenty spots in "Group 24", the twenty-forth class to participate in Juilliard's rigorous acting program. Along with the group projects Matt performed at Juilliard, he also played the title role in a touring production of Moliere's Don Juan, directed by Joseph Chaiken; produced and starred in a student production of "Waiting for Godot; and participated in several interdepartmental productions.

Keeslar is known for his roles in Waiting for Guffman, The Last Days of Disco and Scream 3, and the miniseries Frank Herbert's Dune and Stephen King's Rose Red. Keeslar starred in the 2008 ABC Family series The Middleman.

He established a strong working relationship with South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, California, where he performed plays and staged readings. Despite his love of theatre, Matt worked in film and television most frequently.

He has since retired from acting and now works as a nurse.[2]
