Stephen Tobolowsky may well be among your favorite actors, but you don’t necessarily associate his name with his face. Maybe that’s because he becomes his characters, which is the essence of a great character actor.

On the big screen, Tobolowsky memorably portrayed insurance salesman Ned Ryerson in “Groundhog Day.” His television credits include roles in “Glee,” “The Goldbergs,” “The Mindy Project” and “Heroes.” Currently, you may recognize him as Jack Barker on HBO’s tech start-up send-up, “Silicon Valley.”
