Growing up in California and Idaho, Bill Fagerbakke's dreams weren't focused on becoming a popular TV star or a beloved children's voice actor. He journeyed off to the University of Idaho in 1975, hoping to be a defensive lineman for the school's football team. After two good years, he ended up injuring his knee, ending his hopes for a football career. From there, he followed a girl he liked into pursuing theater. The rest is TV show history. He took six years to finish school, and when did, he didn't make a big splash, mostly sticking to the stage. He made his film debut with "Perfect Strangers" (1984) and followed that up with roles in the Michael J. Fox-starring "The Secret of My Success" (1987) and the Chevy Chase vehicle "Funny Farm" (1988). Fagerbakke then ended up landing one of his most notable roles as amiable but dim-witted assistant football coach "Dauber" Dybinski on the hit TV show "Coach" (ABC 1989-1997). During his years on "Coach," he continued to perform in a few movies and shows, most notably the Stephen King mini-series "The Stand" (1994). Also around that time, he began voice acting, mostly for children's cartoons. His most notable early voice-acting job was as Broadway on "Gargoyles" (Fox 1994-96), though he also had lead roles on the animated versions of "Dumb and Dumber" (ABC 1995-96) and "Beethoven" (CBS 1994). He hit the voice-acting jackpot soon after "Coach" ended, as the voice of the title character's best pal Patrick Star on "SpongeBob SquarePants" (Nickelodeon 1999-2013), which led him to voicing the character in video games, feature films, and more. Aside from bit acting roles on a variety of television shows and movies, Fagerbakke mainly rode the SquarePants wave for the 2000s. He did, however, have a recurring role on the hit sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS 2005-2014) as Marvin Eriksen, the jovial Minnesotan father of Marshall (Jason Segel).
