Best known for his frequent collaborations with Adam Sandler--along with his raspy drawl--actor and comedian Blake Clark fought in the Vietnam War before beginning his acting career. Clark landed his first role on "The Greatest American Hero," followed by appearances on the Korean War comedy "M*A*S*H" and the private-investigator lark "Moonlighting." He made his feature film debut on the Brat Pack centerpiece "St. Elmo's Fire," after which he continued to act extensively on television. Clark appeared on countless sitcoms throughout the 1980s and '90s, most notably the Tim Allen sitcom "Home Improvement," as a hardware store owner who supplies Allen's "Tool Man" with his needed fix. Clark appeared on the show over 20 times between 1994 and 1999. Clark also scored recurring parts on the sitcoms "Boy Meets World," "The Drew Carey Show," and "Grace Under Fire." In 1998, Clark began his collaboration with Adam Sandler on the football comedy "The Waterboy." It continued with "Little Nicky," "Mr. Deeds," "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry," and many others. Clark has also worked extensively as a voice actor, on "Eight Crazy Nights" (with Sandler again) and on "Toy Story 3," replacing longtime friend Jim Varney, who died, as Slinky Dog.
