DAVID SPADE brings his trademark superior comic attitude
to the role of simpering fraternity suckup and banker's
son Scott Thorpe, who believes he's got the SmytheBates
job all wrapped up until Darryl Witherspoon comes along.
Spade is perhaps best known as a fiveyear cast member of
"Saturday Night Live," where he created numerous memorable
characters including the "Hollywood Minute" news correspondent
on the show's spoof of the news. He went on to star on screen
with fellow "SNL" alumnus Chris Farley in such feature
comedies as "Tommy Boy" and "Black Sheep,"
the latter directed by Penelope Spheeris. Spade's other film roles
include "Coneheads," "P.C.U.," "Light
Sleeper" and "Reality Bites." He most recently
starred in "Eight Heads In A Duffel Bag" with Joe Pesci.
He returned to television last year in the acclaimed NBC comedy
series "Just Shoot Me," now in its second season, with
George Segal and Laura San Giacamo. Spade plans to next star in
"Lost & Found," a screenplay he is currently cowriting.
The Michiganborn performer was raised in Arizona and attended
Arizona State University. While there, he perfected his standup
comedy act and took it on the road around the U.S. Soon he was
voted "Hot Stand Up Comedian of the Year" by Rolling
Stone Magazine and appeared in HBO's "Thirteenth Annual Young
Comedians Special," before being asked to join "Saturday
Night Live" in 1990.
