Joseph Mulrey "Joey" McIntyre (born December 31, 1972) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is best known as the youngest member of the musical group New Kids on the Block.[1]

Life and career[edit]

McIntyre was born in Needham, Massachusetts, the son of Thomas, a union official, and Katherine (died November 30, 2014, after a long battle with Alzheimer's), a community theater actress. He is the youngest of nine children (Judy, Alice, Susan, Tricia, Carol, Jean, Kate, Tommy, and Joe), in an Irish-American Catholic family.[2] McIntyre graduated from Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, an all-male Catholic private school. At CM, Joey enjoyed his lunch time excursions with his friend Donnie in his IROC. They sometimes would do rollerblade tricks as well. He shares the same birthday as his sister Carol. Another sister, Judith McIntyre, is an actress.

Just before his 13th birthday, he joined New Kids on the Block, replacing Jamie Kelley. Since the other four members of the group were already long-time school friends, he initially found it difficult to mesh with the group. The New Kids on the Block became one of the most successful boy bands of the late 20th century, producing two number one albums on the US Billboard charts. In 1991, Forbes listed the band as the highest-earning entertainers, beating Madonna and Michael Jackson. The group eventually disbanded in 1994.

Following their split, McIntyre busied himself with songwriting and sought a solo recording contract. He made his acting debut in the film The Fantasticks, which was based on the long-running off-Broadway musical. This 1995 film, starring Joel Grey and Jean Louisa Kelly, was released in theatres five years later.

Disenchanted by his inability to find a recording contract, McIntyre used his own money to record his first solo album Stay the Same and sold it on his website. He then took his first single also entitled "Stay the Same" from the album to local Boston DJs, which eventually garnered the song national airplay. The combination of airplay and website sales for the single led to McIntyre signing a recording contract in 1999 with Sony Music USA, under the C2 label, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, which had previously been home to New Kids on the Block.

The album Stay the Same was re-released on Sony's Work Records and sold more than a million copies around the world. The single "Stay The Same", peaked in the Billboard Hot 100 at #10. The second track from the album was "I Love You Came Too Late".

Also in 1999, McIntyre recorded the song "Remember Me" for the film Southie, which starred former band mate Donnie Wahlberg.

In 2001, he released his second solo album, Meet Joe Mac, but it did not chart. "Rain" was the only single released from this album. Background vocals included Skyler Jett. During the same year, he hosted a season of MTV's Say What? Karaoke from Las Vegas, Nevada.

McIntyre played Jon in Jonathan Larson's Tick, Tick... BOOM! for both the off-Broadway (Fall 2001) and national tour (2003) versions of the play. In 2002, he appeared for a season on the television program Boston Public. The following year, he released the live acoustic album One Too Many with Emanuel Kiriakou.

McIntyre married Barrett Williams on August 9, 2003, exactly one year after they met. His fourth solo album 8:09 was released in 2004. Also in 2004, McIntyre starred in the film Tony n' Tina's Wedding, which co-starred Mila Kunis.

In 2004, he played Fiyero, the leading male role in the Broadway musical Wicked for which he received rave reviews. He replaced Norbert Leo Butz on July 20, 2004 and remained with the show until 9 January 2005 where he was later replaced by David Ayers. He also competed on the first season of the reality television show Dancing with the Stars, winning third place with dance professional partner Ashly DelGrosso.

He appeared as Fonzie in Happy Days, a musical based on the hit TV show at the Falcon Theater in Los Angeles from 15 February to 12 March 2006 and a second run from 23 June to 13 August 2006.

Beginning in December 2006, he took part in Dancing with the Stars - The Tour with actor Joey Lawrence, pop star Drew Lachey and TV stars Lisa Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin.[3]

McIntyre appeared in the film On Broadway, which was filmed in his hometown of Boston. He also released an album of cover versions entitled Talk To Me in December 2006.

In 2007, McIntyre appeared as Gary in Christmas At Cadillac Jacks. The show played around Christmas of that year on The Hallmark Channel and other various Christian channels.

McIntyre and his wife Barrett Williams welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Griffin Thomas, on 20 November 2007 in Los Angeles.[4][5] On 13 December 2009, the couple welcomed their second child, son Rhys Edward,[6] who was identified as having hearing loss while still an infant.[7] In January 2011, it was announced that he and his wife were expecting a 3rd child in the summer of 2011. On 31 May 2011, Joey posted on his personal Twitter account: Kira Katherine McIntyre was born May 31 at 12:30 pm PST. 7 lbs., 3 oz., 21 in.

In April 2008, it was announced that all five of the original members of New Kids on the Block were reuniting. The single "Summertime" was released in May 2008. Their first full length album in fourteen years was released on 2 September 2008, titled The Block. On 18 September 2008, New Kids on the Block kicked off their reunion tour. In 2009, NKOTB began a 'Full Service' summer tour. NKOTB toured with Backstreet Boys in 2011.

On 17 November 2009, McIntyre released the single "Here We Go Again" from his upcoming EP of the same name. The album was produced by Brent Paschke, Gabe Lopez, and Drew Ryan Scott. Paschke, Lopez and Scott also share cowriting with McIntyre on the project. The video for "Here We Go Again" was premiered on the single release date. The EP was released on iTunes in December 2009.

On 2 November 2011, McIntyre guest starred on an episode of the detective comedy Psych.[8] The tittle of the episode is "The Amazing Psych-Man & Tap Man, Issue #2" - Season 6x4[9]

On April 15, 2013, McIntyre competed in the Boston Marathon, in which he ran to raise awareness of Alzheimer's in honor of his mother, who lost her battle on November 30, 2014, finishing with a time of 3 hours and 57 minutes just minutes before the explosion that killed 3 and injured many more.

In 2013, he acted in the American buddy cop comedy The Heat, as Peter Mullins, brother of Detective Shannon Mullins, played by Melissa McCarthy. In 2014, he starred in the CBS TV sitcom The McCarthys, playing Gerard McCarthy.
