Curtis Armstrong


Curtis Armstrong made his film debut as Tom Cruise’s best friend in “Risky Business” and went on to appear in nearly 50 films, including “Revenge of the Nerds,” “Better off Dead,” “Dodgeball,” “Akeelah and the Bee,” “Ray” and most recently, “Sparkle.”

Armstrong has also appeared in many stage and television productions and is well known for recurring roles on “Supernatural,” “New Girl,” “The Closer,” “Boston Legal” and “The Game,” as well as a memorable series regular role on ABC’s “Moonlighting” as Herbert Viola, opposite Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. His numerous guest appearances include “Scandal,” “Rules of Engagement,” “Hot in Cleveland,” “House M.D.,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “C.S.I.” As a voice actor, he can be heard as a series regular on FOX’s “American Dad,” Nickelodeon’s “Robot and Monster” and as the ever-irritated Dan in The Hub’s “Dan Vs.”

A Detroit native, Armstrong graduated from Oakland University’s Academy of Dramatic Art in Michigan. He co-founded Ann Arbor’s Roadside Attractions, which later moved to Detroit as the Attic Theatre.

Additionally, Armstrong is an ardent bibliophile (read: nerd) who collects – and occasionally writes – articles about authors such as P. G. Wodehouse, Washington Irving and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
