An improvisational funnyman and actor who often plays up his Southern roots for comedic effect, Jack McBrayer was born in Macon, Ga., on May 27, 1973. He toured with Chicago's Second City comedy troupe after studying theater management at the University of Evansville in Indiana.

McBrayer is best known for his Emmy-nominated "30 Rock" role as serially cheerful NBC page Kenneth Ellen Parcell, a Southern Bible-college graduate who shares his mother's middle name and claims "American Idol" star Clay Aiken as his cousin.

McBrayer's film credits include the comedies Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006), Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) and Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008). He also appeared as a starstruck computer repairman who fantasizes about romancing Mariah Carey in her "Touch My Body" music video.
