Gary Cole is an American actor, and was born on September 20, 1956 in Park Ridge, Illinois. Cole has appeared in over 100 films and TV shows since the early 80's, but he's probably best known as the boss from hell, Bill Lumbergh, in the cult-classic comedy Office Space. In the TV realm, Cole made his mark playing the sadistic and cruel Sheriff Lucas Buck on the short-lived but fondly remembered American Gothic. Other notable film roles include Mike Brady in The Brady Bunch Movie, Reese Bobby in Talladega Nights, and small parts in A Simple Plan, Dodgeball, Pineapple Express, and Extract. Just some of his many TV guest star credits include The Outer Limits, Frasier, Family Guy, Monk, Law & Order: SVU, The West Wing, King Of The Hill, Chuck and Arrested Development.
