Biography

DJ Qualls was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma when he was just 14, but his cancer entered remission after two years of treatment. He attended the University of London, and later the Belmont University, all while maintaining an active presence in local theater.

After playing minor television roles in the 1990s, Qualls got his break-out role in the 2000 comedy Road Trip. He soon lent his distinctive look to films such as The New Guy, Hustle & Flow and I'm Reed Fish. He also appeared in shows such as Monk, Lost and My Name is Earl, and also dabbled in modelling.
