Rainn co-created and directed The New Bozena, a sketch comedy and post-modern clown show which performed in New York and ended up doing a pilot presentation at Fox TV. He made his directorial debut with a short film based on the show. After many years of working in TV and Film, he became best known for playing Arthur, the odd love interest to Francis Conroy on "Six Feet Under" (2001). His favorite role, however, is Bill Harris in the film, How to Get the Man's Foot Outta Your Ass (2003).
