HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL

PATRICK WARBURTON (Wolf) is known to many for the role of "Puddy” in the hit NBC comedy "Seinfeld,” the laconic, enigmatic, quirky Saab salesman and Elaine's boyfriend. Warburton starred on the ABC hit comedy "Less than Perfect,” as "Jeb Denton,” an opinionated network anchorman; on the hit show "NewsRadio” as "Johnny Johnson” the unscrupulous business rival who takes over the station; and on the live action series "The Tick” as the Tick himself. Warburton returns for the 5th season of the hit CBS comedy "Rules of Engagement” premiering this fall, with David Spade, Oliver Hudson, and Megyn Price, about two couples and their single friend, all at different stages in their relationships dealing with the complications of dating, commitment, and marriage. Warburton starred in "The Action Hero's Guide to Saving Lives” which was recently featured in the 2010 LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival. In 2007, DreamWorks animated feature BEE MOVIE, starred Warburton in addition to the voices of such stars as Jerry Seinfeld, Renée Zellweger, Uma Thurman and Oprah Winfrey. Also, Warburton starred in Disney's major motion picture, live action comedy UNDERDOG, as the archenemy "Cad,” based on the 1964 cartoon television series.

In addition, Warburton starred in the independent feature film I'LL BELIEVE YOU, with Fred Willard, Thomas Gibson, and Chris Elliott, a comedy for young adults/teens about a hunt for an alleged alien living in a small town after a mysterious phone call is received on a radio broadcast. The film was released in April of 2007 to 1,500 theaters nationwide, quite the accomplishment for a small independent film.

Warburton was also featured in the independent film THE CIVILIZATION OF MAXWELL BRIGHT, in which he stared as a vicious and self-destructive anti-hero who desperately needs to save his soul. The film won numerous festival awards in which Warburton captured Best Actor at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, New York VisionFest, and the Boulder International Film Festival. The film's other honors include Viewer's Choice at the Beverly Hills Film Festival, the Special Jury Award at WorldFest Houston and at the Florida Film Festival, Grand Jury Prize at the Florida Film Festival, and the Vision Award for David Beaird at WorldFest Houston. This festival favorite is essentially a modern re-telling of "Beauty and the Beast” that 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 CIVILIZATION OF MAXWELL BRIGHT co-stars Jennifer Tilly, Marie Matiko, Simon Callow and Eric Roberts.

To complement his animated films, he played the character "Rip Smashenburn” in the UPN animated series "Game Over,” the voice of "Brock Samson” in the animated adult series "The Venture Brothers,” the voice of "Mr. Barkin” on the Disney Channel's "Disney's Kim Possible,” and the voice of "Joe” on Fox's popular animated series "Family Guy.” He plays 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 a box office smash on its opening week as #1 and held top spots following its debut. Warburton's voice can also be heard alongside that of Sarah Michelle Geller, Sigourney Weaver, George Carlin, Andy Dick, and Freddie Prinze Jr. in the animated feature film HAPPILY N'EVER AFTER, from the producers of SHREK, where he plays the voice of "Prince Humperdink.” As the voice of the "Savior of the Universe” in Disney's animated Saturday morning TV series "Buzz Lightyear,” Warburton's voice graced the big screen in the Disney animated film THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE, KRONKS NEW GROOVE and "The Emperor's New School.”

Warburton started his television career appearing regularly on the CBS sitcom "Dave's World," with Harry Anderson and Mesach Taylor and originally guest-starred on "Seinfeld” as the painted-faced New Jersey Devils' fan and Jerry's mechanic, only to become one of the show's funniest fixtures. He also did commercial spots for American Express (as the voice of "Superman” alongside Seinfeld), Cadillac, and M&Ms. Warburton starred in THE WOMAN CHASER, which received critical acclaim at the prestigious New York Film Festival and The Sundance Film Festival, as well as opposite Sam Neill in THE DISH, an Australian production about the first man on the moon. Barry Sonnenfeld directed Warburton in the Columbia Tri Star half-hour comedy "The Tick,” which continues to have a huge cult following since its release on DVD. The show gained its popularity with audiences due to its relaxed, adult-friendly comedy.

"The Tick”, in addition to the DVD, has released action figures, t-shirts, and Quaker Oat LIFE cereal boxes with "The Tick” character adorning the cover. He also paired up with Tim Allen in Sonnenfeld's feature films BIG TROUBLE and JOE SOMEBODY, and also appeared in SCREAM 3 and MEN IN BLACK 2.

A native Californian, Patrick grew up in Huntington Beach and currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Cathy and four children Talon, Alexandra (Lexie), Shane, and Gabriel. When talking about his children, Patrick's face lights up as he describes them as the ultimate joy and love of his life. With what little spare time he has, Patrick gets in a game of golf or tennis, does activities with his children, and spends time in his cabin on the Rogue River in Oregon with his family.
