Biography

There were certainly worse things to be associated with than one of the top sitcoms of all time, but following his role as Elaine's dimwitted boyfriend, Puddy, on "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998), the buff, square-jawed actor, Patrick Warburton would go on to voice dozens of animated films and TV series, showing his acting range with unexpected roles in everything from a period Hollywood film noir to the TV adaptation of a comic book. It was the monosyllabic Puddy though, whom the actor could never full escape from - so popular was the character and the show. The more he was underutilized in big Hollywood films and unmemorable TV comedies, it became apparent that Warburton was at his best playing more ironic, left-of-center characters like Puddy or The Tick, and if he could be paired with the right high-profile role, he had the potential to jettison to the top of A-list comedic actors.
