Christopher Nash "Chris" Elliott, who has owned a home in Ridgefield, turns 56 on Tuesday. The actor, comedian, and writer was born May 31, 1960, in New York City, N.Y.

Elliott became known in the mid-late 1980s, when he was a writer and performer on Late Night with David Letterman, playing an assortment of recurring oddball characters. His characters on the show included: “The Regulator Guy”, "The Fugitive Guy", "The Panicky Guy", "The Conspiracy Guy", "Marlon Brando", "Chris Elliott, Jr." and "A Television Miracle".

In 1986 he starred in the Cinemax special FDR: A One Man Show and his early film roles were as a supporting actor in non-comedies such as Manhunter and The Abyss.
