Tony Hale

A naturally gifted comedic talent, actor Tony Hale rode the wave from his infamous Volkswagen commercial to become one of the key players on the cult favorite "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06, Netflix 2013). As the Oedipal Byron "Buster" Bluth, Hale generated big laughs with his portrayal of the immature, almost child-like member of the highly dysfunctional Bluth family. Prior to "Arrested Development," he was featured in a nationally televised VW commercial, where he sat in the driver's seat singing the words to Styx's "Mr. Roboto," which he later parodied on the show. But despite the critical success of "Arrested Development," the show was canceled after three seasons due to low ratings, though six years later Netflix commissioned the production of another 10 episodes. Meanwhile, Hale was a guest star on a variety of dramas and comedies like "Community" (NBC/Yahoo, 2009-2015) and "Justified" (FX, 2010-15), and even broke into features with supporting roles in "Stranger than Fiction" (2006), "RV" (2006) and "The Tale of Despereaux" (2008). He returned to the small screen with a number of guest and recurring roles until becoming a series regular on the satirical comedy "Veep" (HBO, 2012- ), where his hailed performance as a sycophantic vice presidential aide put on display his preternatural gift for comedy.
