Andrew McCarthy Career

McCarthy had his first major role first in 1983 in a comedy Class. He involuntarily became a member of “Brat Pack”, the 1980s Hollywood group of young actors. They appeared in a few films, among them St. Elmo’s Fire and Pretty in Pink. McCarthy starred in the 1987 films, Mannequin and Less Than Zero, a theatrical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel. McCarthy starred alongside Donald Sutherland and Kevin Dillon in the 1985 film Heaven Help Us (also known as Catholic Boys) as Michael Dunn. He made his Broadway debut in The Boys of Winter. In 1988, he quickly returned to Hollywood to star in several films, such as Fresh Horses and Kansas. McCarthy had another hit with the 1989 comedy film Weekend at Bernie’s.

McCarthy returned to Broadway theatre to star in Side Man, McCarthy’s version of the play and in 1999 won a Tony Award for Best Play. He was set to guest star in two episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent in 2003. Because of bad relations with actor Vincent D’Onofrio, series creator Dick Wolf decided against it. Wolf later said that, “Mr. McCarthy engaged in fractious behavior from the moment he walked on the set.” McCarthy fired back in a statement of his own saying, “I was fired because I refused to allow a fellow actor to threaten me with physical violence, bully me and try to direct me.” Despite this incident, McCarthy later guest starred in an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (with Chris Noth, not D’Onofrio) that originally aired in November 2007.

He played Dr. Hook in Kingdom Hospital in 2004. McCarthy appeared in five episodes of the 2005 NBC television series E-Ring. He starred in the 2008 NBC television series Lipstick Jungle as a billionaire, but was eventually cancelled and had a minor role in The Spiderwick Chronicles.

McCarthy directed several episodes of the hit CW television series, Gossip Girl, including Touch of Eva in the fourth season. He is also known for an incident at the 2013 Comic Con Philly event, where his security staff assaulted a popular YouTube character known as “Skippy”, who was attempting to photograph the Mannequin actor at the time. McCarthy appeared in 2010 and 2011 in the hit USA show White Collar where several critics praised him for his performance in the episodes. McCarthy returned to the series in the next season to direct the episode “Neighborhood Watch”. He directed 3 episodes (ep. 11, 13 & 16) in season 2 of the 2015 NBC hit television show The Blacklist starring James Spader and Megan Boone. McCarthy starred in the 2016 short-lived ABC drama The Family.

Andrew McCarthy Travel Writing

McCarthy became a travel writer and is currently an Editor at Large at National Geographic Traveler magazine. In 2010, he was escorted out of an underground church in Lalibela, Ethiopia, for entering the site without documentation. McCarthy had been in the church on assignment for the travel magazine Afar. In 2012, a book written by McCarthy, The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down was published. In February/March 2015, National Geographic published his account, entitled “A Song for Ireland”, of McCarthy’s return to the house in the townland of Lacka West in the parish of Duagh in County Kerry in Ireland from which his great-grandfather John McCarthy had emigrated in the late 1800s.
