Personal Quote:

"I've been really fortunate to have gotten so many great roles. I've been doing sketch comedy since I was a kid, and it still blows me away. I don't even have any talent!" (reflecting on his career thus far)

Trivia:

The series on which he stared, All That (1994), aired exactly 20 years after Saturday Night Live (1975) aired. He would go on to star in the latter eight years later. See more »
