Actor Paul Lieberstein may have first caught the eye of television viewers in his role of Toby on "The Office" (NBC, 2005- ), the quiet and divorced human resources guy often reluctantly drawn into a battle of wills with boss Michael Scott (Steve Carell). But while it was his first onscreen role, Lieberstein was no stranger to television comedy, having worked his way through the ranks writing for "The Drew Carey Show" (ABC, 1995-2004) and helping to launch the animated hit "King of the Hill" (Fox, 1996- ) as an Emmy Award-winning writer and executive producer.
