After supporting roles in such films as Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Georgia-born actor Jack McBrayer found notoriety in 2006 as the naïve NBC page Kenneth on 30 Rock. That memorable, outrageous role launched McBreyer, a Second City alumnus, and led to him landing small but memorable parts in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Campaign. He also found steady work as a voice-over actor in projects such as Despicable Me and Wreck-It Ralph.
