David Wayne SpadeDavid Wayne Spade (born July 22, 1964) is an American actor, comedian and television personality who first became famous in the 1990s as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and from 1997 until 2003 starred as Dennis Finch on Just Shoot Me!. He also starred as C.J. Barnes, along with James Garner on 8 Simple Rules. He currently stars as Russell Dunbar on the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement.
With the help of friend and fellow comedian Dennis Miller, he joined Saturday Night Live in 1990 as a regular cast member and writer. Here, he made popular his well-known sarcastic, smart aleck characters in a number of sketches, some of which include: a flight attendant who bids an unpleasant “Buh-Bye” to each passenger as they disembark; a receptionist for Dick Clark who, as a matter of policy, asks even the most recognizable face “And you are?”; David Spadeand, most famously, the bitingly sarcastic “Hollywood Minute” reporter who assaults celebrities with a series of one-liners. Other characters include Christy Henderson from the Gap Girls, and Karl from the Karl’s Video sketches. He has also done impressions of famous celebrities, such as Brad Pitt and Michael J. Fox. According to interviews with Spade, most of the material that he wrote early on was given to Dana Carvey to perform on the show. Due to his relatively low work rate, he was in danger of being fired as a performer, until the Hollywood Minute segment secured his position.
Though most of the cast left in 1995, Spade stayed on the following year to help in the transition with the new cast. He then quit in 1996, citing “burnout” as the reason. Said Spade, “When I leave, it will be to ease the pressure, not to be a movie star. You can’t stay there forever — it kills you inside. It ages you in dog years. It’s a tough place.” He returned to host an episode in 1998 and another in 2005.
Spade’s attempt at a film career was met with mixed success. Movies such as Joe Dirt and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star were, especially the former, not very successful critically, although both made back their budget and more. He worked with fellow Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Farley in the movies Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, in an attempt to form a modern-day Laurel and Hardy. The two were planning a third movie together David Spadewhen Farley died of a drug overdose at the age of 33. Spade did not attend Farley’s funeral because he “could not be in a room where Chris was in a box.”
Although he received several offers to star in his own TV shows, he turned them down and joined the ensemble cast of Steven Levitan’s office sitcom Just Shoot Me!, which ran for seven seasons from 1997 to 2003. He played to type as a sarcastic receptionist Dennis Finch, which earned him an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations.
Spade has one daughter with Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace. The daughter is named Harper, and she was born on August 26, 2008 in Missouri. Spade confirmed his paternity on September 3, 2008.
Spade is very sensitive to light. The combination of bright lights on-set and working under sunlight while filming Black Sheep caused permanent damage to his eyes. On his condition: “I have to wear a hat even indoors and flashes in particular freak me out. I even have to make them turn down the lights in the make-up trailers. I’ve become such a pain in the butt with this light-sensitive thing, it’s a wonder they don’t just shoot me!
