Justin Bartha is an American actor, known for his co-starring role as Riley Poole in the National Treasure films and as Doug Billings in The Hangover and The Hangover Part II.

Bartha was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and moved to West Bloomfield, Michigan when he was eight. His father, Stephen, is a real estate developer, while his mother, Betty, is a school teacher. He has one brother, Jeffrey. Bartha's family is Jewish, and he had a "fairly Reformed" upbringing. Bartha attended Camp Walden in Cheboygan, Michigan for 5 years as a child. After he graduated from West Bloomfield High School in 1996, he moved to New York and studied acting at New York University.

MI-raised actor Justin Bartha earns a footnote for one of the more eccentric debuts in American film, when he signed to portray a mentally impaired, rapping kidnap victim in Martin Brest's colossal turkey Gigli (2003). Given the film's poor reception, the assignment represented something of a setback for Bartha, but the role at least clocked in a memorable one and paved the way for continued work in Hollywood A-listers - notably in the outings National Treasure (2004) and National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007), and the Sarah Jessica Parker/Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy Failure to Launch (2006).
