Biography

A television character actor and busy voiceover artist, Richard Kind came up through the 1980s improv comedy scene before becoming one of the more prolific supporting players on primetime. He was best recognized for his concurrent roles on the long-running sitcoms "Mad About You" (NBC, 1992-99) and "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002), but throughout his career, he held down a busy schedule in New York musical theater and as an occasional film player. Kind was often cast as bookish, whiny, nebbish types, including in his film career high-water mark in the Coen Brothers' "A Serious Man" (2009), but Kind's voice characterizations in Disney/Pixar animated hits like "A Bug's Life" (1998) and "Cars" (2006) truly afforded the actor the opportunity to stretch his legs and exercise his talent for unpredictable stage comedy.
