A native of Houston raised on Lookout Mountain outside of Golden, Colorado, Germann was exposed to the performing arts at an early age, particularly through his father, an award-winning children’s playwright and theater professor.
As a theatre major at the University of Northern Colorado, a constant stream of plays led him to the gradual realization that acting would be his professional future. Buckling down at UNC, he graduated in two years and moved to New York.
On the big screen, Germann can currently be seen in the Warner Brothers film GET HARD starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. He also recently appeared in the Noah Pritzker directed drama QUITTERS, ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART III based on Ayn Rand’s novel, the Frank Coraci directed comedy HERE COMES THE BOOM starring Kevin James as well as a poignant role in the Matthew Leutwyler directed drama ANSWERS TO NOTHING with Dane Cook and Julie Benz. Greg’s other film credits include the Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron-Cohen uproarious comedy, TALLADEGA NIGHTS.
He was also seen starring in FRIENDS WITH MONEY, alongside Jennifer Aniston, Catherine Keener, and Joan Cusack. The film opened the 2006 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. He has also starred opposite Chris Rock in the Farrelly brothers’ DOWN TO EARTH for Paramount, in the Warner Bros. film SWEET NOVEMBER with Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron, opposite Burt Reynolds in the independent feature THE LAST PRODUCER, and had a very memorable cameo role in the award winning JESUS’S SON starring Billy Crudup.
Additionally, he has starred in the features COMMITED, CAUGHT IN THE ACT and DOWN AND DERBY. He appeared in ONCE AROUND as Laura San Giacomo’s lovesick neighbor, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER with Harrison Ford and he starred in the short film CULTURE which earned a 1999 Academy Award nomination.
