Date of Birth : Dec 24th 1966
American actor and comedian. He is best known for his role as Oswald on The Drew Carey Show.
After a few guest roles on popular television series such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Quantum Leap and Cheers, Bader’s first major role was in the 1993 series Danger Theatre, playing The Searcher. He moved into cinema acting for the 1993 movie version of The Beverly Hillbillies, but returned to TV, playing Oswald on The Drew Carey Show starting in 1995.
Having a deep and easily-recognisable voice, Bader is a natural choice for a voice actor and has had roles in such animated features as Ice Age, The Simpsons, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. He appeared in the 1999 film Office Space as Peter’s mulleted neighbor Lawrence, and in the 2004 film Napoleon Dynamite as Rex, the owner of a martial arts dojo. He was also in the 2004 film Eurotrip as a thief. All of these roles had Bader altering his appearance in some way so as to be less recognisable.
