Biography

Though he proved adept at drama (evident via his straight-faced evocation of a young Bill Murray in the 2002 telemovie It's Always Something: The Gilda Radner Story), actor Mather Zickel specialized in comedic portrayals in madcap, off-the-wall material. Projects included the zany Christopher Walken farce Balls of Fury (2007), the raunchy religious spoof-sex comedy The Ten (2007), and Jonathan Demme's ensemble drama Rachel Getting Married (2008). Zickel is perhaps best known, however, for his ongoing portrayal of Carter on the pitch-black Internet-based soap opera spoof Horrible People. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
