Michael Shannon

Michael Shannon is an American actor with an extensive career in film, stage, and television. Born in Kentucky, Shannon became active in the Chicago theatre scene as a young man and he made his 1993 film debut in the comedy, Groundhog Day. Since then, he has appeared in Jesus’ Son, Pearl Harbor, 8 Mile, Vanilla Sky, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Take Shelter, Mud, Man of Steel, and dozens of other films. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Revolutionary Road. In his latest film, 99 Homes, out on October 2nd, Shannon stars as a ruthless businessman who evicts a single father from his home.

Shannon has appeared in several well-known television series, including Early Edition, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Delocated and was a series regular on HBO’s critically-acclaimed Boardwalk Empire. He is also the frontman and guitar player for indie folk-rock band, Corporal.

On a visit to Amoeba Hollywood, Shannon sat down with our What's In My Bag? crew to share his finds from our racks. An affinity for Chicago music led Shannon to pick up Star Wars, the newest release by Chicago favorites Wilco. He also grabbed an LP by The Jesus Lizard, a band he loves to see play live, and one by Thelonious Monk, his favorite artist of all time.
