Known for his roles in films including “The Aviator”, “Magnolia” and “Step Brothers”, Reilly frequently collaborates with many of Hollywood’s top directors, including Paul Thomas Anderson, Adam McKay and Martin Scorsese. In recent years, Reilly has become known to a new generation of filmgoers as the voice of the titular character in the “Wreck-It Ralph” films.

Off-screen, he’s the frontman of the band John Reilly & Friends. Reilly’s showed off his musical chops in movies like “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Chicago” (for which he received and Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor).

Reilly was nominated for a Tony for his role in the 2000 Broadway production of True West. “Gather” was put together by Reilly and his longtime collaborator and mentor Patrick Murphy.
