Biography

O'Dowd married Dawn Porter in 2012. After their marriage, Dawn changed her surname to O'Porter.

Despite being raised in a Roman Catholic family, O'Dowd has been a life-long atheist, and has developed an antitheist philosophy as he aged. He has stated that he believes religion will eventually be as widely condemned as racism.

In April 2014, O'Dowd presented at Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Easter Bonnet Competition with Leighton Meester and James Franco, after raising donations at his Broadway show Of Mice and Men.

On February 1, 2015, it was announced on Twitter that O'Porter gave birth to a son they named Art O'Porter a week earlier.

En 1891, à Paris, le facteur Joseph Roulin demande à son fils Armand de remettre une lettre à Théodorus van Gogh, le frère du peintre Vincent van Gogh qui s'est donné la mort. Armand est très récalcitrant : même si Van Gogh avait peint son portrait quelque temps plus tôt, Armand reste persuadé, comme la plupart des gens, que Vincent Van Gogh était un fou plus ou moins dangereux. Armand accepte à contrecœur pour faire plaisir à son père. Mais il apprend que le frère de l'artiste est mort quelques mois plus tard. La mission d'Armand semble ne plus avoir de sens, mais, dans l'intervalle, les premiers éléments qu'il a appris sur la mort du peintre lui ont donné envie d'en savoir plus. Dès lors, Armand se rend à Auvers-sur-Oise pour enquêter sur la vie intime et artistique de Vincent van Gogh.

Former teen salsa champion Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) is now an engineer. Bruce gave up dancing after he was brutally bullied by older boys. When he finds out that his new boss, Julia, (Rashida Jones) is passionate about salsa dancing, he decides that the only way he can win her over is by re-mastering the art of dance. He seeks out his old teacher Ron (Ian McShane), who forces him to confront the reasons he quit dancing in the first place. He struggles with low self-esteem, as well as a bullying coworker and rival, Drew (Chris O'Dowd), who constantly dominates the attention of their boss Julia who they're both interested in seducing. With the help of his salsa classmates, teacher, and his former dancing partner, his sister Sam (Olivia Colman), Bruce gets up the courage to relearn all his 'rusty' dance steps and to recapture his lost "corazón" (heart), not only for the dance but for his life. When ready, his friends convince him to enter the local nightclub's salsa dance competition, with the idea that he'll invite Julia to be his dance partner. But when he goes round to hers to ask her out to the dance, he is tricked into believing that he's interrupting an intimate evening she's spending with Drew, so leaves before asking, disillusioned. Julia, meanwhile, discovers what Drew is up to and outright rejects his advances, then kicks him out whilst threatening his position at work. Julia follows Bruce to the nightclub, where he's been doing quite well with his old partner (his sister) and an old routine, and is about to enter the final heat/round of the competition. When he notices Julia had followed him to the club, he's elated and finally plucks up the courage to ask her to dance. They dance the last round of the competition, where Bruce goes on to lose the competition, but regains his true self and finally wins the girl.
