Kirk is Stars Hollow's resident eccentric, and he's so relentlessly annoying you have to give him props. He's everywhere at once (whether invited or not), he knows everyone's business, and he seems to have held every job in town, from delivery guy to mailman to real estate mogul.
Sean Gunn planned for a behind the scenes showbiz career as a theater director. But after graduating from DePaul University's Goodman School of Drama, he started getting acting roles in films and commercials. He took the plunge and relocated from Chicago to L.A., where he won roles on "Angel," "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," and "3rd Rock from the Sun," then went on to play the laughably bumbling Kirk on "Gilmore Girls."
