Kurt Fuller is an American actor best known for his roles as a nerdy television director in Wayne's World, a spiteful mayoral aide in Ghostbusters II and power-abusing, egotistical NSC Director Robert Lindsey in the third season of Alias.
He also starred as Joel in the sitcom Better with You, from 2010-2011.
Fuller also had a leading role in David O. Russell's romantic comedy, Nailed, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel and Tracy Morgan, and can also be seen in Woody Allen's film Midnight in Paris, as Rachel McAdams' father.
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 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, and in 1986 created the role of Frank in Steven Berkoff's explosively successful Kvetch, earning rave reviews on both coasts.
Fuller has worked with some of Hollywood's best directors, including Paul Schrader, Ridley Scott, Wim Wenders, Taylor Hackford, Mike Newell, Harold Ramis, Brian De Palma and Ivan Reitman.
His numerous film credits include Auto Focus, Ray, Pushing Tin, The Jack Bull, Ghostbusters 2, Mr. Woodcock, Superhero and The Pursuit of Happyness.
He had regular role on the television series Big Day, with Wendie Malick. He had previously been a regular on That's my Bush!, from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
In 2009 he had recurring characters on both Supernatural and Psyche, and in the past has had arcs on Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal and Alias.
Other TV appearances include HBO's Live from Baghdad with Michael Keaton, as well Glee, Ugly Betty, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Men of a Certain Age, The West Wing, Grey's Anatomy, House M.D, My Name is Earl, Monk and Drop Dead Diva.
Fuller still returns to the stage occasionally.
