A fearlessly outrageous comic who trained with The Groundlings, actor Chris Kattan broke out as a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) and was on of the long-running show's stars from 1996-2003. Powered by a chameleonic charisma and aggressive energy that belied his small frame, Kattan created many popular impressions and characters, including the exotic dancer Mango, the monkey man Mr. Peepers, the wannabe Goth teen Azrael Abyss and most memorably with Will Ferrell, as a pair of nightclub-hopping, head-bopping brothers. So popular was the latter skits that Kattan and Ferrell wrote and starred in the movie version, "A Night at the Roxbury" (1998), though it fizzled at the box office. He went on to make small appearances in the horror film "House on Haunted Hill" (1999) and the bizarre black comedy "Monkeybone" (2001), before landing his first starring role as the Mafioso man-child "Corky Romano" (2001). Kattan essayed the colorfully quirky villain Mr. Feather in "Undercover Brother" (2002), but struggled to land high-profile roles after he left "SNL." After starring in a miniseries that detailed his attempts to become a movie star in India, "Bollywood Hero" (IFC, 2009), Kattan charmed in a goofy guest spot on "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS, 2005- ) and recurred as Patricia Heaton's likable loser co-worker Bob on "The Middle." (ABC, 2009- ). Although regaining the height of stardom he achieved in his "SNL" prime proved difficult, Kattan remained a vibrant comedic wild card, capable of injecting a fascinatingly chaotic energy into just about any project.
