Toby Huss Biography

Home > Actors > H > Huss, Toby > Biography

Birth Name: Toby Huss
Born: 12/09/1966
Birth Place: Marshalltown, Iowa, USA

On the big screen, Huss made his way with numerous character roles, often playing sleazy but strangely sympathetic characters with both skill and style. Early credits like 1989's little-seen "Zadar! Cow From Hell" and 1994's "Handgun" made way for memorable moments in higher-profile films like 1995's "The Basketball Diaries". As an injured hockey player in "Jerry Maguire" (1996), Huss had a small but pivotal role, and made the most of his brief spot. That same year he had character roles in the comedies "Down Periscope" and "Dear God". The actor revisited his Sinatra-inspired character in "Vegas Vacation" (1997), playing a fake ID salesman on the Vegas strip. He proved a more versatile player with a turn as a gay club owner in the feature remake of "The Mod Squad" (1999) and had a supporting role that contributed various characters to another remake, 2000's "Bedazzled".
