Birth Name: Diedrich Bader
Born: 12/24/1966
Birth Place: Alexandria, Virginia, USA

After becoming a familiar face on television, Bader landed roles in several projects, most notably the cult hit comedy "Office Space" (1999), "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" (2001), "Eurotrip" (2004) and, in perhaps his most laughably loopy role, as fitness guru Rex in the cult favorite "Napoleon Dynamite" (2004). Bader also developed a busy and lucrative side career as a voice actor, lending his distinctive tones to such animated series as "Pepper Ann," Disney's "Hercules," "The Simpsons," "Baby Blues," "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command," "Kim Possible," "Batman Beyond" and "King of the Hill," as well as the feature films "Ice Age" (2002) and "The Country Bears" (2002). Bader did a comic turn as a stylist for bumbling FBI Agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) in "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous" (2005), the sequel to the unexpectedly successful 2000 comedy "Miss Congeniality."
