Biography by Jason Buchanan

A uniquely talented, popular character actor/comedian who has provided voices for characters in such popular animated television series as Futurama and King of the Hill, funnyman David Herman is perhaps best known for his role as the unfortunately named Michael Bolton in Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge's popular live-action feature Office Space (1999). The New York City native joined the cast of television's MADtv shortly after graduating from LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts in 1992. Early roles in such features as Let It Be Me (1995), however minor, quickly proved that he was more than just a funny face. Vocal work on King of the Hill introduced the rising comic star to Mike Judge, and when Judge was preparing his live-action feature debut, he turned to Herman to play the role of frustrated cubicle-dweller Michael Bolton. The winning performance earned Herman the recognition that vocal work alone could not, though he still continued to voice characters on Futurama and Invader ZIM. Supporting roles in Dude, Where's My Car? and Table One (both 2000) found Herman's film career continuing to flourish, and after taking the lead in director Jon Favreau's made-for-television feature Life on Parole (2003), he joined actors John Goodman and Orlando Jones in providing vocal work for the animated series Father of the Pride in 2004.
