Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Character actor and comedian Toby Huss first gained widespread notice for his eerily transcendent portrayals of a Sinatra-type crooner showcased on MTV promo spots. Reedy, with expressive and elastic features not unlike a younger Frank Sinatra, the dark-haired performer has worked in film and television but has done his longest-running performances as a voice actor, playing Hank Hill's neighbor Kahn as well as his father Cotton on the Fox animated series "King of the Hill" (1997- ). Huss had worked with "King of the Hill" creator Mike Judge previously on "Beavis and Butt-head" (1993-1997) where he voiced Todd, the obnoxious bullying hero of the titular lamebrains. A 1993-1995 stint on the quirky Nickelodeon series "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" cast him in the unlikely role of Artie, the Strongest Man Alive. A former cast member of the NBC daytime drama "Days of Our Lives", Huss racked up additional TV credits with guest roles on NBC's "NewsRadio", a regular spot on the short-lived sitcom "The Army Show" (The WB, 1998) and a scene-stealing turn as a trainer for professional wrestlers in the more successful offering "Nikki" (The WB, 2000- ).
