Biography

Actor Zachary Levi began acting on-stage in community and regional theater when he was just a kid, but it was a very grown-up performance as Hank in the play Marvin's Room that booked him an agent. His first big break onscreen was a supporting role in the FX TV movie Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie. Among other TV work, he played Kipp Steadman on the sitcom Less Than Perfect. Eventually, he scored the lead role of geeky unlikely hero Chuck Bartowski on the spy comedy TV series Chuck, which began airing in 2007. While Chuck ran for 5 seasons, he tried his hand at big-screen success in projects such as Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. He had his biggest hit voicing the good guy in the animated hit Tangled. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
