Biography by AllMovie

Portly, balding character actor E.E. Bell worked all kinds of serious entertainment, including mysteries (Murder, She Wrote) and big-budget suspense films (Air Force One). But chances are that he will be best known by the average viewer for his portrayal of Bob Rooney, the not-too-bright but oh-so-enthusiastic neighbor of the Bundy family on Married With Children. A recurring character in dozens of episodes, he was one of the very few supporting players given a reasonably full background as a character. Whether helping Ed O'Neill's Al Bundy make his NEA-funded movie "The Day In The Life of a Shoe Salesman" or trace the wiring in the wall of the Bundy home, Bell was a stitch to watch and listen to, particularly due to his deeply resonant and expressive voice. Bell later ran an unofficial "No Ma'am" site catering to Married With Children fans. After the show's cancellation, he made the rounds of feature films and other sitcoms, including How I Met Your Mother.
