THE BENCHWARMERS

TIM MEADOWS (Coach Wayne) holds the record as the longest-running cast member in the 29-year history of "Saturday Night Live.” The versatile comedian crafted some of the series' most memorable characters during his 10 years on the popular late night show, including Leon Phelps, The Ladies' Man and Lionel Osbourne, host of the fictional public affairs show, "Perspectives” — as well as delivering uncanny impressions of OJ Simpson, Ike Turner and Sammy Davis Jr.

Born in Highland Park, Michigan, and raised in Detroit, Meadows studied television and radio broadcasting at Wayne State University before performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. In 1985, he relocated to Chicago where he first joined Improv Olympic and, subsequently, the legendary comedy troupe Second City. During his three years at Second City, he wrote and starred in productions of "The Gods Must Be Lazy” with Chris Farley, "It Was Thirty Years Ago Today” and "Flag Smoking Permitted in Lobby Only,” gaining a loyal following for his sharp comedic skills. In 1991, Meadows was asked to join "SNL” as a featured player. Nominated for an Emmy as part of "SNL's” writing team, he quickly made the transition to regular cast member.

Several years after appearing in a string of films based on "Saturday Night Live” sketches including Coneheads and Wayne's World 2 (both in 1993), Meadows starred in a film version of The Ladies' Man. After leaving "SNL,” he became a regular cast member on "The Michael Richards Show.” In 2002, he joined the cast of the NBC sitcom "Leap of Faith.”

Meadows played a school principal in the comedy hit Mean Girls starring Lindsay Lohan and written by fellow "SNL” cast mate Tina Fey. He also starred in the comedy The Cookout with Queen Latifah and Danny Glover. Meadows currently lives in Venice, CA.
