He received an Oscar nomination for his work in Brokeback Mountain, and is also known for his performances in films such as Donnie Darko and Love and Other Drugs.

O'Byrne, who will play George, won a Tony Award for his work in Frozen and was Tony-nominated for The Coast of Utopia, Doubt, The Lonesome West, and The Beauty Queen of Leenane.
