Logue's versatility and talent makes him one of the most respected actors today. Born in Ottawa, Canada, Logue moved all over the United States, from the Boston area as an infant to various towns on the Mexican border. He returned to Boston to attend Harvard University, where he majored in intellectual history and eventually discovered his love for the performing arts. While in college, he appeared in over 30 plays, worked for two summers in the American Repertory Theatre's Harvard/Radcliffe Summer Stock Company, and spent a short time doing theatre in England.
After graduating, Logue joined the Cornerstone Theatre Company that developed community theatre in rural parts of the United States. From then on, Logue dedicated himself to pursuing his passion for acting.
In 2000, Logue starred in "The Tao of Steve," the story of a larger-than-life, philosophizing Lothario, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and won him a Special Jury Prize for Outstanding Performance.

He will appear in "Max Payne" with Mark Wahlberg and "The Lodger" with Alfred Molina and Hope Davis.
In addition, Logue recently made his directorial debut with the independent film "Tennis Anyone?," which appeared at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. He wrote and starred in the film opposite Jason Isaacs and Paul Rudd. He's next set to direct the Irish/Canadian production "Paddyville."
