Martin Starr

A graduate of the Judd Apatow stable, Martin Starr might not have the profile of Seth Rogen or James Franco, but he quietly became a permanent fixture of American comedy, having appeared in over a dozen sitcoms, several box-office hits and a number of under-rated cult favorites. Starr first attracted attention as the geeky oddball Bill Haverchuck in the criminally-ignored "Freaks and Geeks" (NBC 1999-2000) and subsequently became a Frat Pack regular, stealing scenes in the likes of "Knocked Up" (2007), "Superbad" (2007) and "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" (2007). But it was on the small screen where Starr was allowed to truly showcase his talents, most notably as frustrated writer Roman DeBeers on "Party Down" (Starz 2009-10) and computer wizard Sam Stern on "NTSF: SD:SUV::" (Adult Swim 2011-13), while a string of guest parts on the likes of "Parks and Recreation" (NBC 2009-15), "Community" (NBC 2009-15; Yahoo!, 2015) and "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS 2005-14) further established his funnyman credentials.
