Michael White (born June 28, 1970) is an American writer, actor, and producer for television and film and the winner of the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award for Chuck & Buck.
Early life Edit
Born in Pasadena, California, White attended Polytechnic School and Wesleyan University. White's father is the Reverend Dr. Mel White, a former speechwriter for Religious Right figures such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. White is openly bisexual. His father, meanwhile, came out as homosexual in 1994.
White was a writer and producer on Dawson's Creek and Freaks and Geeks and wrote and acted in the films Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl, Orange County, School of Rock and Nacho Libre. He also had a role in the 2004 remake of The Stepford Wives.
He frequently collaborates with actor/writer Jack Black on films. Together they formed the production company Black and White, which closed in 2006. White is not a fan of classic rock, but he wrote The School of Rock (2003) specifically so Black could perform his own favorite rock music.
White made his directorial debut with the self-penned Year of the Dog at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Mike is a vegan animal rights supporter  and received an award from animal rights group PETA for his film Year of the Dog.
