SPACE CHIMPS

PATRICK WARBURTON (Titan) has been a familiar face since his recurring role as Elaine's laconic boyfriend, Puddy, on the classic NBC comedy "Seinfeld.”

Warburton currently stars in the hit CBS comedy "Rules of Engagement,” co-starring David Spade, Oliver Hudson and Megyn Price, which focuses on two couples and their single friend—all at different stages in their relationships—as they deal with the complications of dating, commitment and marriage. Warburton recently contributed his voice acting to the blockbuster Bee Movie alongside such stars as Jerry Seinfeld, Renée Zellweger, Uma Thurman and Oprah Winfrey. Warburton's performance was nominated for an Annie Award for Best Voice Acting in an Animated Feature, his third such honor.

Warburton began his television career with regular appearances on the CBS sitcom "Dave's World," with Harry Anderson. He originally guest-starred on "Seinfeld” as the face-painted New Jersey Devils' fan and Jerry's mechanic, only to become one of the show's funniest fixtures as Puddy, the enigmatic Saab salesman. He also has featured in commercials for American Express (as the voice of Superman alongside Seinfeld), Cadillac and M&Ms.

On the big screen, Warburton starred in The Woman Chaser, which received critical acclaim at the prestigious New York Film Festival and The Sundance Film Festival. He appeared opposite Sam Neill in The Dish, an Australian comedy about the first manned mission to the moon. Other film credits include Big Trouble, Joe Somebody, Scream 3 and Men in Black 2.

Barry Sonnenfeld directed Warburton in the Columbia Tri-Star half-hour comedy "The Tick,” which has enjoyed a huge cult following since its release on DVD. The show gained popularity with audiences due to its relaxed, adult-friendly comedy. He also starred on ABC's hit comedy "Less than Perfect” as Jeb Denton, an opinionated network anchorman; and "NewsRadio” as Johnny Johnson, the unscrupulous businessman who takes over the station.

As a voice actor for animated series, Warburton played the character Rip Smashenburn in the UPN series "Game Over,” Brock Samson in the adult series "The Venture Brothers,” Mr. Barkin on Disney Channel's "Kim Possible” and Joe the neighbor on Fox's popular animated series "Family Guy.” He also provided the voice of The Savior of the Universe in Disney's animated Saturday morning series "Buzz Lightyear.”

Warburton voiced the character of Ian, the ultimate alpha-male, in the Sony animated film Open Season, opposite Ashton Kutcher and Martin Lawrence. Playing in both regular theaters and IMAX 3-D, it was No.1 at the box office in its opening week. Warburton's voice was heard alongside those of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Sigourney Weaver, George Carlin, Andy Dick and Freddie Prinze Jr. in the animated feature film Happily N'Ever After, from the producers of Shrek. He also played the arch-villain Cad in Disney's live action comedy hit Underdog, based on the 1964 cartoon television series.

Warburton's recent performance in the independent film The Civilization of Maxwell Bright, as a vicious and self-destructive antihero desperately trying to save his soul, netted him Best Actor awards at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, New York VisionFest and the Boulder International Film Festival. Essentially a modern re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, this festival favorite explores what happens when a modern Neanderthal is locked in close proximity with a kind and loving woman. Written and directed by David Beaird, the film co-stars Jennifer Tilly, Marie Matiko, Simon Callow and Eric Roberts. Its other honors include Viewer's Choice at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, the Special Jury Award at WorldFest Houston and the Florida Film Festival, Grand Jury Prize at the Florida Film Festival and the Vision Award for director David Beaird at WorldFest
