It gives me great pleasure to introduce this week’s Nice Boy, the talented Gary Cole. Gary will appear as a guest star in the first episode of the season four premiere of True Blood, which airs Sunday, June 26th, on HBO. Chuck fans know Gary as Jack Burton, Sarah Walker’s father. Beyond that, Gary’s credits are extensive, and include Entourage, The West Wing, Family Guy (voice), Kim Possible (voice), Wanted, Shark, Desperate Housewives, The Good Wife, The Practice, American Gothic, Midnight Caller, Psych and much more.
Gary’s film credits include Immortality Bites, Pineapple Express, Conspiracy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Ring 2, Cry Wolf, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, One Hour Photo, Cadet Kelly, In the Line of Fire to name a few.
Gary is an Illinois native, born and raised in a suburb of Chicago. His first acting gig was on stage in a high school production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown playing Snoopy, and later joined Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company. He went on to appear in several off-Broadway productions in New York.
It’s always a pleasure to watch Gary in any role he takes on, and we love seeing him on our Nice Boys Wall of Fame.
