Rob McElhenney (born April 14, 1977) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He attended Waldron Mercy Academy for grade school and Saint Joseph's Preparatory School high school in Philadelphia. He also received a blackbelt in Taekwondo at the age of 13, as well as winning multiple martial arts tournaments before pursuing his acting career.

McElhenney made his film debut with a bit part in Alan J. Pakula's The Devil's Own followed by bit parts in A Civil Action, Wonder Boys, and Thirteen Conversations About One Thing. He later had more substantial parts in Latter Days and The Tollbooth and small role in the eighth season Law & Order episode "Thrill".In 2004, McElhenney was still waiting tables between acting assignments when his manager and agent pitched McElhenney's idea for a sitcom to FX. The cable network received it warmly. McElhenney claims that 50 weeks of each year are consumed by acting, producing, and writing for the show, but he did find time to appear in the third season of Lost as Aldo in the episode, "Not in Portland". This was a result of McElhenney meeting Lost co-creator and executive producer Damon Lindelof, who is a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. McElhenney continued the role in Lost, featured again in the sixth season for a single episode (episode 3). In 2013 McElhenney hosted a panel discussion with cast, creators, and writer of HBO's Game of Thrones.

  • Engaged to 'Kaitlin Olson' (qv) as of December 2007.
  • Went to high school with musician 'Donald McCloskey' (qv).
