With his everyman looks and highly professional announcer's voice, comedic actor Chris Parnell was often cast as a utility player on the venerable variety show "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ), until he and fellow cast member Andy Samberg took the world by storm with their hilarious rap parody, "Lazy Sunday" (2005). Up to that point, Parnell had delivered laughs in a number of recurring characters like Merv "The Perv" Watson while offering a wide array of celebrity impressions that included Eminem, George W. Bush, Tom Brokaw and Lance Bass. Of course, he naturally appeared in films with other "SNL" alum, including Tim Meadows' "Ladies Man" (2000) and Will Ferrell's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004). After eight years on "SNL," however, Parnell was fired by Lorne Michaels in 2006 due to budget cuts, becoming the first to ever be fired twice by the producer following a previous dismissal early in his career. He moved on to appear in a number of smaller films like "Hot Rod" (2007) and "Kabluey" (2008) while guest starring on a number of shows, most notably as a recurring player on "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-2013). Although his highest-profile gig came as the voice of priggish secret agent Cyril Figgis in the spy comedy "Archer" (FX 2010- ), Parnell nonetheless remained a constant comedic presence on screen.
