Biography by Nathan Southern

The hunky and slightly burly actor Shawn Roberts debuted onscreen in his native Canada in the early '90s, but made his first significant impression among American audiences, in Hollywood, over a decade later. After receiving prominent billing as Tyler in the direct-to-video frat-boy comedy National Lampoon's Going the Distance, Roberts played Calvin Murtaugh, the straight-faced son of Eugene Levy, in the family-oriented Steve Martin vehicle Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005). In 2007, the actor essayed two horror roles, in the pictures Skinwalkers and George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead.
