Biography

With back-to-back roles as the smiling, overeager and disarmingly naïve NBC page on "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006- ) or as the equally innocent pit crew member in the hit film "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Rick Bobby" (2006), comic actor Jack McBrayer did not so much take America by storm that year, as he did sneak up on it. With his charming smile and authentic Southern accent, McBrayer may not have been a household name, but viewers fell in love with the actor on sight - all the while wondering if this guy was for real. As it turned out, his loveable hayseed routine transcended genres, with McBrayer scoring laughs in the feature hit, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008) and continuing to bring the laughs on "30 Rock," which earned the young actor his first Emmy Award. McBrayer expanded his horizons both on television and in features, landing a major role in the live action adventure "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" (2010) and voicing characters in a number of animated projects like ""Despicable Me" (2010), "Bob's Burgers" (Fox, 2011- ) and "The Simpsons" (Fox, 1989- ). Though he had tiny parts in larger star vehicles like "A Thousand Words" (2012), McBrayer maintained a steady presence on "30 Rock" while awaiting his next big opportunity.
