Who is Kevin Heffernan?

Kevin Heffernan was born on 25 May 1968, in West Haven, Connecticut, USA. He is an actor, director, producer, and writer, perhaps best known for his role in the comedy film “Super Troopers” in which he portrayed Vermont State Trooper Rod Farva, but has also appeared in other notable films. He is associated with the comedy group, Broken Lizard too.

The Net Worth of Kevin Heffernan

As of mid-2020, Kevin Heffernan’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, earned through a successful career in acting in the profession since 1996.

Aside from his film work, he’s also made frequent guest appearance in various popular television programs.

Early Life, Education, and Broken Lizard

Kevin grew up in West Haven, where his father was a judge, while his mother worked was the treasurer of the city. His father served as the mayor of the city in the past, and so Kevin lived a very comfortable life there. He attended Fairfield College Preparatory School, Connecticut.

After matriculating, he enrolled at Colgate University where he developed an interest in comedy and performance. The university is located in Hamilton, New York, and is known for its focus on arts degrees and teaching. During his time there, he joined a couple of comedy groups which included Charred Goosebeak. Many of the members of this batch would go on to form Broken Lizard, consisting of Kevin, Jay Chandrasekhar, Erik Stolhanske, Steve Lemme and Paul Sotter. The group would later help each other in their professional endeavors, often collaborating in productions, writing and acting.

He along with Chandrasekhar have become known more as the face of the group, though they didn’t actually choose a leader.

Acting Beginnings

Kevin made his film debut in 1996, when he starred in “Puddle Cruiser”, the first film created by Broken Lizard, shot at Colgate University and tells the story of several college friends and their misadventures. The film got positive reviews, and won the Golden Starfish Award during that year’s Hamptons International Film Festival. A few years later he had a minor role in the film “No Looking Back” which starred Edward Burns and Lauren Holly, but the film bombed and barely earned $250,000, despite having a budget of $5 million.

This didn’t derail him in any way, as he was then cast in “Big Helium Dog” playing the character Phil. The film starred most of the Broken Lizard members and was produced by Kevin Smith, spoofing the entire process of creating films and shows, telling the story of a man who gets into a big television deal that falls through, but his work ends up saving the world. In the 2000s, Broken Lizard started to focus on creating more feature films, leading one of their biggest hits.

Super Troopers – Rise to Fame

In 2001, Kevin gained a lot of fame for his starring role in “Super Troopers”, which was very successful at the box office.

The film tells the story of five state troopers from Vermont and their rivalry with the local police of Spurbury. The success of this film led them to their next project -“Club Dread” – which also featured Britanny Daniel, Jordan Ladd and Bill Paxton. The film was shot in Mexico, but failed at the box office with mixed reviews.

Following this work, Kevin made an appearance in the miniseries “The 100 Scariest Movie Moments”, which was one of his first television projects. He was featured in an interview segment, as celebrities who were involved in a film discussed were also interviewed.

In 2005, he appeared in a supporting role in “The Dukes of Hazzard”, a film based on the television series of the same name, starring Jessica Simpson and Seann William Scott; the film received mostly negative reviews, but was successful at the box office. During the same year, he worked on another comedy, “Sky High” which featured Kurt Russel and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and tells the story of a kid who discovers that he has powers, while enrolled in a school for superheroes.

Television and Recent Projects

Since 2007, Heffernan has had more of a consistent presence on mainstream television, appearing first in guest roles in “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “How I Met Your Mother”.

At around the same time, he worked on another Broken Lizard film – “Beerfest” – also shot in Mexico. The film tells the story of brothers who must travel to Munich, Germany to celebrate Oktoberfest, and spread their grandfather’s ashes.

In 2009, Kevin made his directorial debut as a member of Broken Lizard in the film “The Slammin’ Salmon”. The film is about a contest within a restaurant to see how much one of the waiters can earn in a single night, with the loser being beaten down by the owner. After working on “The Babymakers”, he then returned to television, making guest appearances in “Workaholics”, “Agent Carter”, and “The Goldbergs”.

In 2018, he reprised his role as Rod Farva in “Super Troopers 2” which was successfully funded through Indiegogo. In 2019, he began working as the executive producer of the show “Tacoma FD”, and is also one of its stars. The show tells the story of firefighters who often find themselves tackling events other than fighting fires.

Personal Life

It is not known if Kevin is single or is in a relationship as he has not discussed that aspect of his life publicly. Despite all his work in the entertainment industry, he has a law degree and manages a practice; he’s passed the bar exam in both Connecticut and New York. On his social media accounts, he mostly talks about work and not much else, preferring to keep his private life to himself.
