Biography

Clark Duke was only 7 when he landed his first acting gig as on "Hearts Afire" (CBS, 1992-95), but he avoided the dreaded child actor syndrome by staying out of the business until he was a young adult, studying filmmaking at Loyola Marymount University. With the help of his best friend, "Arrested Development" actor Michael Cera, Duke wrote, directed and starred in the 2007 series "Clark and Michael." CBS's decision to distribute the meta-mockumentary show online coincided with the aspiring writer's return to acting; first in several small TV roles, and then with a small but memorable cameo in Cera's breakout hit "Superbad" (2007). The next few years saw the Baptist-raised actor land a lead role on the collegiate ensemble series "Greek" (ABC, 2007-2011); appear in the road-trip romance "Sex Drive" (2008); and star in the viral video "Drunk History, Vol. 2" (2008) opposite Jack Black. Duke next landed the one-two punch of starring in the high profile films "Kick-Ass" (2010) and "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010), which led to his being cast as an ambitious sales rep on the long-running comedy "The Office" (NBC, 2005- ) and Eddie Murphy's harried assistant in "A Thousand Words" (2012). He may be the voice of a teenage caveman in "The Croods" (2013), but Clark Duke built his career as an actor on smart choices.
