After graduating from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, he moved back to Chicago to begin his acting career.
Flynn’s professional career really started with various theater productions. He performed at Goodman and Steppenwolf Theaters, earning a nomination for the Joseph Jefferson Award for Actor in a Principal Role for “The Ballad of the Sad Cafe” in 1986. He also toured with a theater group called Second City Comedy Troupe, and went on to perform at Improv Olympic Theater. His television debut was the 1982 series “Brookside”, taking a minor role in one episode.
Flynn made his movie debut with the 1989 movie “Major League” playing the role of Longshoreman. He went on to appear in several movies during the 90s, including “Rookie of the Year”, “The Fugitive”, “Baby’s Day Out”, “Chain Reaction”, “Home Alone” and other. He also made many appearances in the 90s television series, such as “Early Edition”, “Seinfeld”, “Ellen”, “That 70s Show” and “Chicago Hope”, mostly having minor roles appearing in few episodes. However, with his various appearances, his net worth started to rise.
In 2001, Flynn auditioned for the role of Dr. Cox in the comedy series “Scrubs”. Instead of this role, he was cast in the role of a hospital custodian named Janitor, originally planned to last only for the pilot, however, his character remained as a series regular. The series is a medical comedy-based series portraying the lives of hospital employees, and was aired on NBC from 2001 to 2009, before ABC had picked it up for the last two seasons, and the series was canceled later in 2010. Flynn was cast in all eight seasons, and appeared as a guest star in the final ninth season. The series greatly contributed to actor’s wealth.
In the meantime, Flynn appeared in various other series of the 2000s, including “Clone High U.S.A.”, “Smallville”, “King of the Hill” and “Joey”. Since 2009 he has been cast as the lead male character in the comedy series “The Middle”, playing the role of family patriarch Mike Heck. The series is still in its run.

He has appeared in more than 20 movies and over 30 television series, which has given the actor a considerable reputation and earned him a significant net worth.
In addition to acting, Flynn has also done some voice-over work, such as for the 2001 Disney’s animated series called “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command”, the 2002 “Kim Possible”, as well as for the 2002 video game series Ratchet & Clank. He also provided the voice for the character Max Flush of the 2011 FOX television show “Bob’s Burgers”. Since 2015 he has been voicing the character of Chuck of the animated web-series “Vixen”.
