Despite the large number of villainous roles to his name, Shannon is very much known to be a NiceGuy who loves his daughter and has a great sense of humor.

Michael Shannon (born 1974) is an American stage, film, and television actor. His best known performances are as John Givings in ''Film/RevolutionaryRoad'', prohibition agent Nelson Van Alden in ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'', and General Zod in ''Film/ManOfSteel''.

Born in Kentucky to a single mother, he got his first work as an actor on the Chicago stage, at various times working for such theatre companies as Steppenwolf, The Next Lab and the Red Orchid Theatre. He eventually started to get small parts in Hollywood movies, too, notably the Creator/JerryBruckheimer-produced films ''[[Film/BadBoys Bad Boys 2]]'', ''Film/PearlHarbor'', and ''Film/KangarooJack''. This visibility (along with his UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for ''Film/RevolutionaryRoad'') has led to him recieving larger and more acclaimed roles in (mostly independent) films, such as ''Film/{{Bug}}'', ''Film/TheRunaways'', ''Film/BeforeTheDevilKnowsYoureDead'', ''Film/BadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans'', ''Film/ShotgunStories'', and ''Film/TakeShelter''.
