Best known for the eight years he spent as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975-), Chris Kattan was born in Culver City, California in 1970. Splitting his time between his mother, who was a Zen Buddhist, and his father, who was an actor and comedian, Kattan had exposure to the things that excited him and plenty of quiet time to contemplate his future. He would eventually join the sketch comedy troupe the Groundlings-where his father, Kip Kattan, had been a founding member-which led to his finally joining the ranks of "SNL" in 1996. Kattan's wild and zany characters such as Mango and Mr. Peepers were a huge hit, as was his recurring sketch with Will Ferrell in which they played two head bopping nightclub attendees. That sketch would be adapted into Kattan's first movie, "A Night at the Roxbury" (1998). He would appear in other films like "House on Haunted Hill" (1999) and "Corky Romano" (2001) during his run on "SNL," which finally ended in 2003. Kattan went on to star as a heightened version of himself on the mini-series "Bollywood Hero" (IFC, 2009), play the recurring role of Bob on "The Middle" (ABC, 2009-2018), and even competed on "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005). In 2019, Kattan published the memoir Baby, Don't Hurt Me, in which he revealed that in 2001, he broke his neck performing a stunt on "SNL," an injury that had severely impacted his life and career over the past 20 years.
