Chris Parnell

Chris Parnell is an American actor, comedian, and voice artist. He first came to prominence as a cast member of the TV show Saturday Night Live which he joined in 1998. He also lent his voice to Cyril Figgis on the animated spy spoof series, ‘Archer' apart from his hilarious recurring role as Dr. Leo Spaceman on ‘30 Rock.' He was with SNL for eight seasons and had the distinction of being fired from it twice! Even though he has carved a career for himself as a comedic character actor, Chris Parnell has been an underrated actor. However, it can't be denied that he is highly versatile—he can portray a variety of characters ranging from the inept but confident Dr. Leo Spaceman to the insecure Cyril Figgis with the same élan. He indeed has the unique ability to bring to life a wide range of memorable characters of such differing personality traits. No doubt, he has established himself as a vital addition to any cast! Along with his acting skills, he is known as a rapper, which the world witnessed in his raps about Britney Spears and Jennifer Garner. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, a former actor, and their two children.
