Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

American actor Kurt Fuller has played scores of characters over the course of his decades-spanning career, making him a familiar face to virtually anyone who has ever watched television. He caught the acting bug while a student at UC Berkeley and, after graduation, packed up his belongings and moved to Hollywood. He paid his dues for 10 years, working a day job in real estate, before finally breaking through with his performance as Frank in the Steven Berkoff play "Kvetch" in 1986. Afterwards the work started pouring in. Early in his career he appeared in the movies "The Running Man," "Red Heat," "Ghostbusters II," and "The Bonfire of the Vanities." Tall (6'3") and gangly, Fuller is often cast as oafish geeks in comedy films. He played a nerdy television director in "Wayne's World" and the eccentric sheriff in "Scary Movie." In 2001 he played Karl Rove in "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's scathing political satire "That's My Bush!" Fuller has also appeared in multiple episodes of "Desperate Housewives," "Supernatural," "Psych," and "Better with You." In 2011 Fuller earned art house credibility when he appeared as a wealthy, conservative parent in Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris,"...
