Wendt, a six-time Emmy nominee for his portrayal of Norm Peterson on "Cheers", made his TV directing debut at the helm of a "Cheers" episode.

Wendt has hosted NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and appeared frequently on it as Chicago "super-fan" Bob Swerski.

In a rare dramatic turn, Wendt played the title role in a BBC adaptation of the classic Russian novel "Oblomov". Filmed entirely in the former Soviet Union. To date, it has not aired in the USA.
