Kurt Fuller - born September 16, 1953 in San Francisco, CA - is an American character actor who portrayed Grayden Osborne in second season on ABC's Scandal. He has appeared in a number of television, film and stage projects.

Personal BackgroundEdit

Although he was born in San Francisco he was raised in the agricultural heartland of California’s San Joaquin Valley. Kurt became passionate about acting while attending UC Berkley where he received a degree in English literature. After graduating he made the move to Los Angeles with everything he owned stuffed in the back of a Dodge Dart (including a king-sized foam rubber mattress). For the next ten years he was a realtor by day and a stage actor by night. Then, in 1986, he created the leading role of "Frank" in Steven Berkoff's explosively successful Kvetch, earning rave reviews on both coasts.

He is married author and actress Jessica Hendra on December 24, 1993; together they have two daughters, Julia born in 1998 and Charlotte born in 2001. Kurt graduated from Lincoln High School in Stockton, California in 1971.

Career BackgroundEdit

Kurt is best known for his work in the films Wayne's World (1992) with Mike Myers and Anger Management (2003) with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, although others may know him best as the wacky sheriff who likes to pose in Speedos in Scary Movie (2000).

He was worked with some of Hollywood's best directors, including Paul Schrader, Ridley Scott, Wim Wenders, Taylor Hackford, Mike Newell, Harold Ramis, Brian De Palma and Ivan Reitman.

Kurt still returns to the stage occasionally. His most recent theatre work was "The Cosmonaut's Last Message" at the La Jolla Playhouse, and the highly acclaimed "The Waiting Room" at The Mark Taper Forum.
