Began acting in plays as a kid and did theater in college. Visited New York City while in college to interview for jobs on Wall Street, but also used the time to go on auditions. Attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Often portrays some type of authority figure. Was cast as a cop in Lethal Weapon 2, a commanding officer in Starship Troopers, and a state trooper in Little Miss Sunshine, among others.  Has created several videos parodying his cop persona, including a fictional show called Cop Talk and one that pokes fun at his character in the AMC series Breaking Bad.
