Early life [ edit ]
On October 19, 1966 in Flushing, Queens, New York, Jonathan Kolia Favreau was born to Madeleine, an elementary school teacher who passed away in 1979 from leukemia, and Charles Favreau, a special education teacher. His mother was Jewish (of Russian Jewish descent)[2, 3], [4, 5], and his father is a Catholic of Italian and French-Canadian ancestry. Favreau left Hebrew school [6, 7][8, 10] to pursue acting. After his mother passed away, however, his extended family made it a priority to make sure he had a Bar Mitzvah. 
After completing high school in 1984 at the gifted-student-focused The Bronx High School of Science, Favreau enrolled in and dropped out of Queens College in 1987. Mitchell Pollack, a college friend of Favreau's, claims that Favreau's nickname was "Johnny Hack" because of his skill at the game Hacky Sack. In early 1988, he spent a semester at Queens College after working briefly for Bear Stearns on Wall Street. When he was only a few credits away from graduating, he decided to leave college for good and move to Chicago in the summer of 1988 to pursue a career in comedy. In Chicago,  he appeared on stage at ImprovOlympic and the Improv Institute, among others. 
Career [ edit ]
Career Beginnings: 1992-2000 [ edit ]
Favreau's first film role was as the tutor D-Bob opposite Sean Astin in the underrated hit Rudy (1993), which he landed in Chicago. Favreau got to know Vince Vaughn, who had a bit part in the movie, on set. Later that year, he co-starred with Jeremy Piven in the film PCU about a college campus, and in 1994, he played Eric the Clown in an episode of Seinfeld called "The Fire." 
After relocating to Los Angeles, Favreau found success as an actor and screenwriter in the 1996 film Swingers, in which Vaughn also found fame as the character Trent Walker, the antagonist to Favreau's heartbroken Mike Peters. During the 1997 season of Friends, he guest starred as Pete Becker, Monica Geller's millionaire boyfriend who is also a professional mixed martial arts fighter. During 1996 and 1997,  Favreau was a guest star on the sketch comedy series Tracey Takes On.... 
For Deep Impact (1998), Favreau played Gus Partenza, and for Very Bad Things (1998), he teamed up with Piven again. In 1999, he played the title role in the biopic Rocky Marciano, which was based on the life of the former heavyweight champion. Later, he co-starred with Famke Janssen in the cult classic Love & Sex (2000).  Favreau played the maniacal linebacker Daniel Bateman in the 2000 film The Replacements, and he also appeared as himself in the 2001 episode of The Sopranos titled "D-Girl," in which he portrayed a Hollywood director who pretended to be interested in developing a screenplay written by mob associate Christopher Moltisanti in order to gather material for his own screenplay. 
The years 2001-2015: Actor-Director [ edit ]
He directed his first film, Made (also written by him), in 2001. Made reunited him with Vince Vaughn, with whom he had worked in Swingers. Dinner for Five, which starred Favreau, ran on the cable network IFC from 2001 to 2005.
Favreau appeared as lawyer Foggy Nelson in Daredevil (2003), and he directed an episode of the college drama Undeclared in 2001 (his appearance in the film increased significantly in the director's cut). He also had roles in Steve Anderson's 2003 film The Big Empty ().

To wit:  Favreau wrote the script for "The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest" in 2002.
His first major box office success as a director came in the fall of 2003 with the release of Elf, a comedy starring Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, and Peter Dinklage. Favreau also had a small role in the 2003 film Something's Gotta Give, which starred Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, as Leo, Harry Sanborn (Nicholson), Sanborn's personal assistant. The film version of the children's book Zathura was directed by Favreau in 2005. Despite favorable reviews, its commercial success was limited.

In the romantic comedy The Break-Up, he starred alongside Vaughn, and in My Name Is Earl, he played a despicable fast food manager.

Favreau directed and executive produced Iron Man, the first film to come from Marvel Studios' partnership with Paramount. Favreau plays Tony Stark's driver Happy Hogan in the film's opening sequence.

While filming Four Christmases in 2008, he played Denver, Vaughn's bully older brother. In 2009, Favreau co-starred in the comedy Couples Retreat, which he also wrote and directed. The film follows four married couples as they undergo therapy sessions while vacationing on a tropical island. Kristin Davis played his wife, and he co-starred with Vince Vaughn again in the film. 
In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, he provides the voice of Mandalorian Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla. 
He signed on in September 2009 to direct Cowboys & Aliens, an adaptation of Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's graphic novel of the same name.

Robert Downey Jr. makes a cameo appearance alongside Sofa Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, and Dustin Hoffman.

It was also announced that same year that Favreau would be directing a computer-animated remake of Disney's The Lion King, which would be his first time helming a musical. Released in theaters this past July, the film stars Donald Glover as Simba and James Earl Jones as Mufasa. As of July 29th, The Lion King had earned more money than either the original or Favreau's previous directorial effort, The Jungle Book. He also served as a consultant on 24 episodes of The Orville between 2017 and 2019,  while working on other directing projects.

Planned Future Activities [ edit ]
The critically acclaimed live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book that Favreau directed was rumored to be getting a sequel in April 2016. Pre-production on the sequel began on June 12, 2018, with Justin Marks, the film's original writer, having completed an early script draft. 
Appearances [ edit ]
In Tim Ferriss's book, Tools of Titans, Favreau contributes a chapter offering guidance.
Works in progress [ edit ]
Favreau was set to write and produce a motion-captured animated film titled Neanderthals for Sony Pictures Animation in the mid-2000s, but the project was canceled sometime in 2008.
It was first reported in November 2010 that Favreau would direct a film titled Magic Kingdom, based on The Walt Disney Company's theme park of the same name. In July 2012, Favreau confirmed that he was in fact working on the film. After filming The Jungle Book was completed, he stated in 2014 that he was still interested in directing the project. 
Favreau, along with David Fincher, Brad Bird, Matthew Vaughn, and Ben Affleck, was reportedly in contention to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens in November 2012, but J. J. Abrams ultimately won the job. Favreau stated in June 2015 that he would not be involved with the Star Wars anthology films, but that he was open to working on future Star Wars films. Later, Favreau collaborated with the franchise on the live-action series The Mandalorian (75).
Will Ferrell said he didn't want to make another Elf movie in December 2013. Even so, in an interview conducted in January of 2016, Favreau mentioned the possibility of a sequel. But the following month, Ferrell said again that the sequel was not likely and that he had no interest in reprising his role. 
Intimate sphere [ edit ]
On November 24, 2000, Favreau wed doctor Joya Tillem. They have three children together: son Max Favreau (who played a young version of himself in Iron Man 2), two daughters, and a baby daughter. Tillem is the niece of Len Tillem, a lawyer and talk show host. 
Favreau says that his "really strong background in imagination, storytelling, understanding how to create tone and a sense of balance" came from his time playing Dungeons & Dragons. "

Manufacturers of Golems, L.L.C. On August 30, 2018, Jon Favreau formed an LLC that specializes in television production. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Favreau explained the inspiration behind his company's name: "a golem was like technology; it could be used to protect or destroy if control was lost of it." They've collaborated with Lucasfilm on shows like "The Mandalorian" and "The Book of Boba Fett"
