Bio

Rex Lee is a Korean-American actor best known for his role as Lloyd, assistant to Ari Gold, the bombastic agent character played by Jeremy Piven, on the comedy-drama television Entourage, from 2005-2011.

He also starred as gay teacher Mr. Wolfe in the television sitcom Suburgatory.

In addition to receiving three SAG Award cast nominations for Entourage, Lee's performance won him the 2007 and 2008 Asian Excellence Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Television and the "KoreAm" Achievement in Entertainment Award in 2007.

Lee has a solid background in theatre and has several independent features to his credit, including the '08 ensemble comedy Shades of Ray, in which he co-starred with Brian George and Kathy Baker.

he's guest starred in several shows, including Dave's World, Son of the Beach, Lucky and Andy Richter Controls the Universe.

In commercials, Lee is best remembered as the Annoyed Customer for Domino's Pizza and starred in national spots for Dr. Pepper, Chevrolet and Wendy's.

Lee was born in Warren, Ohio, but he's been a Southern California resident since age nine. His parents encouraged him to play an instrument, and at age six he chose the piano.

Lee, a good student and "Math Whiz," attended private schools from middle school until he was accepted to the prestigious Oberlin School of Music in Ohio. After two years of study, Lee decided to explore other creative outlets aside from music.

When he sampled the theatre department, he says, "The light bulbs clicked on." He transferred his interests from music to drama and received a BA from Oberlin. He returned home to Southern California to pursue his career as an actor.

Lee took jobs in retail and worked at a coffee house by day while acting in local theatre at night.

While co-starring in such productions as the controversial AIDS polemic, Queen of Angels, the revival of Charles Ludlam's Camille and Letters to a Student Revolutionary at East/West Players, the actor discovered how art can make lasting statements and generate debate about important issues. This experience shaped his passion for significant and controversial work.

Lee currently resides in Los Angeles.
