Biography

A ubiquitous "offbeat" supporting player in teen comedies like "Clueless" (1995) and "Roadtrip" (2000) and a frequent collaborator with best friend Seth Green, Breckin Meyer outgrew his "slacker sidekick" persona and eventually found lasting success on television. Meyer starred in several short-lived sitcoms but fared better with his recurring voice role on "King of the Hill" (Fox, 1997-2009) and his many comic characterizations on the Green's "Robot Chicken" (Cartoon Network, 2005), for which he was also nominated for an Emmy Award for his writing. While the quick wit occasionally appeared on the big screen in comedies like Disney's "Herbie: Fully Loaded" (2005), the former go-to teen burnout was wise to leave that persona behind and instead channel his offbeat sensibility into a respected career as a writer and actor.

Bonus Trivia

.

Meyer was accepted at California State University, Northridge, but decided not to attend in order to focus on acting.

.

"For awhile, I got stupid about only wanting a leading-man role, but I have no illusions. I know I'm not Brad Pitt. It's just I hate reading the description 'offbeat' about a character in a script, because I, along with Seth Green, Jamie Kennedy and a few others, have cornered the market on 'offbeat.'" - Meyer quoted in Movieline magazine, August 1998
