Rob Thomas (II)

Biography: This Rob Thomas is the executive producer and creator of two favorite edgy dramedies, Veronica Mars and 1998's Cupid. Thomas manages to write in a witty, yet natural, unlike some of his much lauded counterparts, like Aaron Sorkin. Sorry to diss Sorkin, but Thomas' dialog puts the West Wing's and Sports Night's to shame.

Thomas' self-confessed career goal is to be a "critical darling, commercial failure". With Veronica Mars, he may fall short of his goal. His Hollywood Hills manse lies between the former homes of Richard Simmons and Jan-Michael Vincent. Oh what stories those walls could tell. Born in Washington state in 1965, he moved to Texas in 1975 and graduated from San Marcos High School in 1983 and the University of Texas at Austin in 1987 with a BA in History. First attended college at Texas Christian University, this TCU horned frog intercepted a fake punt attempt by Kansas State, but quit football, and transferred when it was credited to another Thomas, Sean.
