Bill Hader

Bill Hader joined the cast of Saturday Night Live (SNL) in the 2005-2006 season. Heralded by New York magazine as SNL's new secret weapon, Hader boasts "impersonations and sarcasm delivered with eviscerating deftness." Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Hader co-starred in the Judd Apatow-produced comedy hits Superbad, for director Greg Mottola, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, for director Nicholas Stoller. He also appeared in Apatow's Knocked Up.

Hader appeared in two of summer 2008's biggest comedies: Tropic Thunder, directed by Ben Stiller, and Pineapple Express, directed by David Gordon Green. He worked again with Greg Mottola in the Miramax feature Adventureland, starring Ryan Reynolds and SNL cast mate Kristen Wiig.

Hader was recently seen playing General Custer as part of the all-star cast of the box-office hit Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, for director Shawn Levy. He also voiced the lead character in Sony Pictures Animation's feature Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

His upcoming films include Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil, in which he reprises his role as the voice of Hansel.
