Mini Bio (1)
Kurt Fuller was fortunate to launch his career with the movies "Ghostbusters 2" and "Wayne's World". This led to a role in "Anger Management" with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler and the opportunity to be part of the all-star cast of Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris". Others may know him best as the wacky sheriff who likes to pose in his speedos in "Scary Movie " or the beloved coroner Woody in the long running series "Psych".
Born in San Francisco and raised in the agricultural heartland of California's San Joaquin Valley, Fuller became passionate about acting while attending UC Berkley, where he received a degree in English literature. After graduating, he made the move to Los Angeles with everything he owned stuffed into the back seat of a Dodge Dart (including a king size foam rubber mattress). For the next ten years he was a Realtor by day and a stage actor by night. Then, in 1986, he created the leading role in Steven Berkhoff's explosively successful "Kvetch", earning rave reviews on both coasts.
Fuller has gone on to have a very successful career, working with some of Hollywood's best directors, including David O. Russell, Tony Scott, Harold Ramis, and Ivan Reitman, among others. His numerous film credits include "Auto Focus," "Ray," "Pushing Tin," "The Jack Bull," "Ghostbusters 2," "Mr. Woodcock," "Nailed" and "The Pursuit of Happyness."
His television credits include "The Good Wife" "CSI,"The Good Fight," on CBS All Access, "Ugly Betty," "Men Of A Certain Age," "Grey's Anatomy," "House," "My Name Is Earl," "Monk" "Manhattan Love Story," "Us & Them," "Better with You," "The Big Day," "That's My Bush," "Parenthood," "Scandal," "Psych," "Supernatural," "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal," "Law & Order: SVU," "Drop Dead Diva" and "Alias."
Kurt still returns to the stage occasionally, most recently in the acclaimed "Greedy" for Red Dog squadron. He's also worked at the La Jolla Playhouse and the Mark Taper Forum.
He is married to Jessica Hendra, a published author. They have two daughters, Julia and Charlotte. His birthday is September 16. Follow him on Twitter @TheRealKurtFuller.

Personal Quotes (1)
But there was a scene where I offer him money to go to my network, and he's supposed to shove a check down my throat, and his line is, 'I won't be around when this check clears.' But nobody told him that, on movies, you fake it. In wrestling, they really do a lot of the stuff. But he shoved a check down... my... throat. And I couldn't stop him. I literally thought I was going to die. We finished the scene, and I coughed it up, and he said [Does a spot-on Hulk Hogan impression.] 'Oh, sorry, brother, I didn't know we were supposed to fake it!'
At one point I said to the director, 'You know, I'm being really loud. Is this too big?' And he said, 'Kurt, you're standing next to a guy who's 6-foot-9 and wearing red spandex. You can't be too big.' I said, 'Well, I guess you're right.' But he was wrong: you could be too big, and I was! You know, there are some things you can't unsee, and there are some movies you can't get off IMDB no matter how hard you try. That's all I'm going to say.
