Untitled[edit] Matthew Lillard starred in "Dead Man's Curve" (1998) as Tim.


He appeared as "Matthew Lyn" in Sk8 TV, not Matthew Lillard.


Should his role in Scream be mentioned as one of his most "well-known" roles?
I mean, it was, if I recall, one of the most successful horror franchises in history, and his performance in the climax scene was certainly memorable and has been parodied a number of times.

Looks like Edge from WWE? Lets drop that in —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:39, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Personally I remember him best from "Hackers" but I can't say for sure if any of his roles were more well known than others. I'd argue against the statement 'one of most "well-known" roles was in "Scream"'. How about "most recent high-profile"? Something more or less to that effect? —Preceding unsigned comment added by LactoseIntolerant (talkcontribs) 23:22, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Matthew Lillard[edit]

It has been said and well documented that Matthew Lyn Lillard did attend Fullerton Community College, in Fullerton, CA, USA - possibly in the 1990s. Mr. Jensen, of the Drama Department - and writer of Wahlenberg, an award winning black box play - at FCC did state that Matthew Lillard did go to school at Fullerton Community College, and did study acting there. Mr. Lillard even said so himself, in an MTV like mini-documentary about himself. In a clip from the show, one care see Matthew Lillard driving a car in Fullerton, CA, passing the Community College, saying "I went there". In a later clip, one can see Mathhew Lillard sitting in on an acting class at the Community College, giving the students notes on how to be an actor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:57, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

It may be verifiable but is it really worth noting ? -- Beardo (talk) 18:08, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Matthew Lillard[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Matthew Lillard's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "scream2dvdcommentary":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 23:47, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Unclear/inaccurate wording[edit]

The article states: "He was cast in 1995 in one of five films that year, Hackers, which featured a group of high school kids who thwart a multi-million dollar corporate extortion conspiracy." This is a confusingly worded statement that lacks citation and conveys incorrect meaning. The plain meaning of the sentence is that only five movies were released in 1995, and Lillard was cast in one of them. In fact, Lillard appeared in five movies that year, and "Hackers" was one of them. A more accurate wording: "In 1995, Lillard appeared in five films, including 'Hackers,' a thriller about a group of high-school kids...."Jtcarpet (talk) 09:12, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Place of Birth[edit]

The intro states he was born in Lansing, Michigan. The Info box says Chicago. Which is correct? Goldnpuppy (talk) 15:43, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Lansing, Michigan. It's been fixed now. --Ebyabe talk - General Health ‖ 16:11, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

"known for portraying"[edit]

We don't need such a large portion of his filmography in the intro. Maybe 5 roles, probably fewer. I would list Scream and Scooby-Doo, but am not sure what others (if any) to list. Any suggestions? --Khajidha (talk) 13:14, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
