DAVID HYDE PIERCE (Carl) studied acting at Yale University with Bart Teusch, Austin Pendleton, Lynne Meadow, and Nikos Psacharapoulus, and worked for two seasons at Mr. Psacharapoulus's Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts. After graduating in 1981, he moved to New York, and made his professional and Broadway debut in 1982 as the waiter in Christopher Durang's "Beyond Therapy." He went on to create roles in the off-Broadway productions of Mark O'Donnell's "That's it Folks!," Richard Greenberg's "The Author's Voice" and "Maderati," Harry Kondoleon's "Zero Positive," and Jules Feiffer's "Elliot Loves," before returning to Broadway in Wendy Wasserstein's "The Heidi Chronicles."

In addition to his work in new plays, Pierce also appeared in "Hamlet" and "Much Ado About Nothing" at Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival, "Holiday" and "Camille" in Chicago, "The Seagull," "Tartuffe," "Cyrano" and "Midsummer's Night's Dream" at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, and Peter Brook's production of "The Cherry Orchard" in New York, Moscow, Leningrad, and Tokyo. In 1991 he came to Los Angeles, where he appeared in Terrence McNally's "It's Only a Play" at the Doolittle Theatre and in the Reprise production of "The Boys from Syracuse," directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman.

Pierce's film credits include "Bright Lights, Big City," "Crossing Delancy," "Little Man Tate," "Sleepless in Seattle," "Wolf," "Nixon," "Isn't She Great," "Wet, Hot, American Summer," and the animated films "A Bug's Life," "Osmosis Jones" and "Treasure Planet."

His television credits include a short but happy stint on Norman Lear's political satire "The Powers that Be," and a long but happy stint on "Frasier."
