Christopher Clare Showerman (born June 24, 1971) is an American actor, best known for his role as George in George of the Jungle 2 (2003).

Early life

Showerman was born in Jackson, Michigan on June 24, 1971. He was raised in Stockbridge, Michigan and attended Stockbridge High School.

He embarked on an acting career after attending Michigan State University, where he majored in music. After small roles in several studio feature films, including Starship Troopers (1997) and Best in Show (2000), Showerman was cast in the lead in Dumped (2000). His big break came in 2003 when he was cast to replace Brendan Fraser as George in George of the Jungle 2 (2003).


Showerman has appeared in such films as Sea of Fear, Idol, Live Fast, Die Young, Complacent, and Big Game. His film credits include Hole in One, A Night at the Silent Movie Theater, Commander and Chief, and Radio America, which he also wrote, produced and directed. On television, he has appeared on Jack of All Trades, The OC, and CSI Miami.

A year after Brendan Fraser opted not to reprise his role as George in Disney's George of the Jungle 2 sequel, Disney decided to produce the film for the direct-to-video market. Showerman was asked to play the part of George.


In 2006, Showerman formed an independent film production company called Shorris Film with Clint Morris, whose first film was the supernatural western Between the Sand and the Sky. The company also produced Radio America, co-starring, directed and written by Showerman. In 2012, Shorris Film co-produced Bristled: The Howl Chronicles.
