Character actor Will Sasso commenced onscreen work in the early '90s and -- while known to tackle material from a plethora of genres -- particularly specialized in comic material. From the late '90s through the early 2000s, Sasso honed his comedic skills a cast member of the popular sketch comedy show Madtv. He also guest-starred on such series as The X-Files, Family Guy, and Entourage; had longer stints on the sci-fi series Sliders and the marriage sitcom 'Til Death; and garnered a regular role on the workplace comedy Less Than Perfect from its second to fourth (and final) season. Early film credits include such farces as Ernest Goes to School (1994), Ski School 2 (1995), Happy Gilmore (1996), and Beverly Hills Ninja (1997). Sasso teamed with Christopher Guest and company for the acclaimed mockumentary Best in Show (2000), and worked for critical favorite Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) on that director's darkly comic, dystopian epic Southland Tales in 2006. He had a major part in College Road Trip, but he enjoyed his most high-profile exposure when he was cast as Curly in The Three Stooges in 2012.
