Jack McBrayer (/məkˈbrɛər/; born May 27, 1973) is an American actor and comedian, who gained national exposure for his portrayal of characters on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and as Kenneth Parcell in 30 Rock. For his role in 30 Rock he was nominated for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.

With back-to-back roles as the smiling, overeager and disarmingly naïve NBC page on "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-2013) or as the equally innocent pit crew member in the hit film "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" (2006), comic actor Jack McBrayer did not so much take America by storm that year, as he did sneak up on it. With his charming smile and authentic Southern accent, McBrayer may not have been a household name, but viewers fell in love with the actor on sight - all the while wondering if this guy was for real. As it turned out, his loveable hayseed routine transcended genres, with McBrayer scoring laughs in the feature hit, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008) and continuing to bring the laughs on "30 Rock," which earned the young actor his first Emmy Award. McBrayer expanded his horizons both on television and in features, landing a major role in the live action adventure "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore" (2010) and voicing characters in a number of animated projects like ""Despicable Me" (2010) and the starring role in the kids' series "Wander Over Yonder" (Disney, 2013-16). Along with smaller roles in films such as "The To-Do List" (2013) and horror comedy "Cooties" (2014), McBrayer maintained a steady presence in American comedy.

Best known for his role as NBC page Kenneth Parcell on NBC primetime comedy 30 Rock (2006), Jack McBrayer was born on May 27, 1973 in Macon, Georgia. He studied theater administration at the University of Evansville in Evansville, Indiana, and went on to work at The Second City and IO Theater from 1995-2002. McBrayer became acquainted with Tina Fey during that time, which helped him ultimately secure the role on 30 Rock (2006). After his time with those comedy troupes, McBrayer frequently appeared in sketches on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) playing a series of stereotypical Southern characters. That stretch lasted from 2002 to 2004, and soon after McBrayer secured his role as a series regular on 30 Rock (2006), which begins its seventh season in Fall 2012. McBrayer received an Emmy nomination in 2009 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as dim-witted NBC page Kenneth Parcell. He was also the main character in "30 Rock" web series 30 Rock: Kenneth the Webpage (2007) which ran from 2007 to 2009 and earned two Emmy nominations for short-format programming. Other noteworthy television credits include a small role on Arrested Development (2003) and a recurring voice on Phineas and Ferb (2007), among others. McBrayer has also worked in numerous movies over the past decade, including Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010), and The Campaign (2012), and he is voicing the character Fix-It Felix in November 2012's Wreck-It Ralph (2012).
