Kirby received critical acclaim for his starring role in the World War II drama Saints and Soldiers which was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. He also starred in the award-winning boy band mockumentary The Sons of Provo, and the award-winning quixotic comedy Pirates of the Great Salt Lake (The Weinstein Co.). Kirby was also a series regular on FBC’s series Free Ride and has appeared in numerous nationwide commercial campaigns including a Honda campaign featuring Mario Andretti.
Kirby’s comedic wit and charm guarantee the audience a memorable performance in the Farrelly Brothers FOX feature, The Three Stooges, opposite Sean Hayes and Sofia Vergara. Kirby plays "Teddy" a childhood friend, who accidentally becomes involved in a murder plot with The Stooges.

Kirby and Green Giant Search for Giant Surprise Talents - March 2013
This Wednesday, Target is debuting its new cast (Kirby) of holiday characters in ads, commercials and online to get people excited for the upcoming shopping (er, we mean holiday) season.
Known as the Target Deals Duet, the irresistibly quirky singing-and-saving duo appears at moments when guests are making their most important gift-giving decisions.
Similar to many Target guests, the Target Deals Duet are sale-obsessed and not afraid to shout (well, sing) it from the rooftops. They communicate through song, verse and Christmas carols, of course.
Just think of the Target Deals Duet as livelier Jiminy Crickets—a shopping conscience steering you in the right direction and shining a light on savings through (witty) words of wisdom.
While the Target Deals Duet may be invisible to the other characters in the holiday campaign—mom studying the Weekly Ad in prep for Black Friday; teens planning a doorbusting night out; dad scrambling for last-minute gifts—you as a viewer can’t (and won’t want to) miss these charming carolers in key moments throughout the season.
Kirby Heyborne - Win a Ride With Mario Andretti Honda Commercial 2012
Utah actor’s Hollywood dream comes true in ‘Three Stooges’
April 12, 2012 - Salt Lake -- Kirby Heyborne is living the dream — even if that dream means fighting Los Angeles traffic. "I’m just so happy that I get to do this," said Heyborne, on the phone while driving on the freeways of Los Angeles. "I find joy in the 405 traffic, thinking, ‘I’m in traffic in Los Angeles because I was just working.’ "
Heyborne, who was born in Evanston, Wyo., and grew up in Sandy, has for the past 8 1/2 years been a workaday actor in Los Angeles, going to auditions and taking roles where he could find them. Before that, Heyborne’s face was gracing the DVD shelves of many Mormon homes — having starred or co-starred in LDS-themed films such as "The Singles Ward," "The R.M.," "The Best Two Years" and "Saints and Soldiers."
This Friday, the biggest role of Heyborne’s career will hit the nation’s movie screens, in the Farrelly Brothers comedy "The Three Stooges: The Movie."
It’s a career break that the 34-year-old Heyborne — whose shaggy blond looks suggest a younger, goofier Owen Wilson — owes to a beer commercial. (Don’t tell his bishop.) Heyborne worked with Peter Farrelly (who with his brother Bobby directed "There’s Something About Mary") on a Miller Lite ad.
"We fell in love with each other," Heyborne said. "Well, I mostly fell in love with him."
Heyborne knew the Farrellys were working on a movie reviving the classic slapstick of the Three Stooges, but thought, "There’s nothing in it for me."
"Next thing I know, I’m driving down the 405 and I get a call from Peter Farrelly," Heyborne said. "He said, ‘We want to see you for something.’ I said, ‘OK, Pete!’ "
Heyborne read for, and got, the role of Teddy, who grew up in the same orphanage as Larry, Moe and Curly (played by Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso). Teddy, the only orphan ever to get adopted from the Sisters of Mercy Orphanage, is reunited with the Stooges as adults.
Heyborne is the movie’s straight man to the Stooges’ antics. It’s a departure from his TV commercial work (like that Miller Lite ad), where he usually plays the funny one.
The straight man doesn’t get much glory, but he’s an important part of comedy, Heyborne said. "The straight person may not get all the laughs, but they definitely are setting up the other person to soar," he said.
For Heyborne, who watched "The Three Stooges" shorts as a kid and the Farrellys’ "Dumb and Dumber" as a teen, working in a Farrelly version of the Stooges was almost too good to be true.
"If you would have told me when I was 14 years old, after watching ‘Dumb and Dumber,’ [that] ‘You are going to be getting a phone call from Peter Farrelly,’ I wouldn’t have believed it," he said. "It’s a dream."
