Early life and education

He started his movie career in the 2001 “Super Troopers” comedy crime story of five Vermont state troopers who are avid pranksters specialized in screwing things up; even today it is thought to be one of his biggest achievements on screen. He then had a couple of small roles in “Bubble Boy” in 2001 and “Garden State” in 2004, before he landed his next notable role as Winston in “The Ringer” in 2005 starring Johnny Knoxville, in this sports comedy movie in which he had to compete in Special Olympics to gather enough money to pay his big debt.
Geoffrey appeared in six more movies before getting his next big role in “500 Days of Summer” in 2009. This comedy romance was a huge success, telling the story of a young man who falls for a woman who doesn’t believe in love. It has a 7.7/10 rating on IMDb, and was loved by the audience.
He has had roles in seven more movies, but none of which were important for the progression of his career – the last one he appeared in was “The Angry Birds Movie” in 2016, in which he lent his voice to a daycare teacher.
His career began in 1997 with his role in “Daria” – lending his voice to Charles ‘Upchuck’ Ruttheimer III in 21 episodes until 2001. He appeared in 12 more TV series for an episode or two before landing a main role in “Trust Me” in 2009. It was a big success. telling the story about the private and professional lives of three employees, Rothman, Green and Moore who work at a Chicago advertising agency.
Geoffrey has appeared in over 10 more TV series, but his only memorable role was in “Body of Proof” shot between 2011 and 2013, alongside Dana Delany who played a medical examiner with her unique approach to solving crimes. The series won two BMI TV Music Awards in 2011 and 2012, and was nominated for two other awards in 2011 and 2014.
Geoffrey is a big fan of video games, so it is easy to understand that he was thrilled to find out that he was wanted to voice Charles ‘Upchuck’ Ruttheimer III in “Daria’s Inferno” game in 2000, a game based on the TV series in which he already voiced the same character.
It appears that Geoffrey did a good job in this game as he was invited to voice three characters in the 2004 game “Red Dead Revolver”. In the same year, he lent his voice to pedestrian in “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” – the game which turned out to be one of the most played that year. You can hear his voice in four more games – “The Warriors” released in 2005 in which he voiced Hi Hat, “Neverwinter Nights 2” from 2006, “Manhunt” from 2007, and another very successful game which was released in 2008 – “Grand Theft Auto IV”, again voicing a pedestrian as well as an entire crowd of Liberty City.
