Michael Lanahan


Hey there - I’m Michael Lanahan. I’m an actor working and living in Los Angeles.


Michael Lanahan plays school principal Mr. Penworth in Disney Channel’s upcoming series, “Just Roll With It”.  The first-of-its-kind series is a hybrid of a scripted family comedy and an improvisational comedy in which the studio audience members vote on the outcome of certain scenes.

Lanahan is a well-known face on television and has been recurring on the CBS hit “Life in Pieces” as Dr. Nopunn, the Veterinarian, as well as on Better Call Saul, 9-1-1, American Horror Story, Lucifer, Fargo, Bella & the Bulldogs, I Didn't Do It, Jersey Boys, & The Office.

Originally from Gaithersburg, Maryland, Lanahan graduated from Virginia Tech with a BA in Theatre Arts.  An experienced stage actor, he’s been seen Off-Broadway, in regional theatres, & the great theatres of LA. In 2009, he spent nearly a year performing in “Louis & Keely: Live at the Sahara” at the Geffen Playhouse, directed by Oscar-winner Taylor Hackford. 

Look for him this Fall in the anticipated films “Ford v Ferrari” and “Call of the Wild”. 

He recently added author to his resume, with the release of the comedy book, “Daddy Drinks: Six Dads Trying To Get It Right While Getting It Hilariously Wrong”, co-authored by fellow actor-dads, from Post Hill Press - available on Amazon now!

In his spare time, Lanahan loves reading books, riding his bicycle along the beach, watching comic-book movies, and listening to history podcasts.  He is very active in beach clean-up activities.

He currently resides in Redondo Beach with his wife and 6-year-old daughter.

Thanks for stopping by!
