Early lifeEdit

Hader was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the son of Sherri Renee (née Patton) and William Thomas Hader.[3][4] His father owned an air-freight company and worked as a restaurant manager, truck driver and occasional stand-up comedian;[5] his mother was a dance teacher.[6] He has two younger sisters, Katie and Kara.[4] His ancestry includes German, Danish, Irish, and English; his surname originates in Germany.[7]

Hader attended Patrick Henry Elementary School, Edison Junior High, and Cascia Hall Preparatory School.[8][9] He had "a hard time focusing on class" and was always "joking around". Though he was not hated by classmates, he felt he never truly fit in and filled his time watching movies and reading.[10] He appreciated Monty Python, British comedy, and the films of Mel Brooks and Woody Allen,[11] many of which he was introduced to through his father.[10] He made short films with friends and starred in a school production of The Glass Menagerie.[11]

He was unable to gain admission to top film schools because of his "abysmal" grades, so he instead enrolled at The Art Institute of Phoenix,[12] and later Scottsdale Community College.[10] Hader has mentioned that his very first job was selling Christmas trees. He also worked as an usher at a movie theater in nearby Tempe, which allowed him to see films for free. He was fired for spoiling the ending of the 1997 film Titanic to noisy patrons.[13][14] At Scottsdale, he met Nicholas Jasenovec, the director of Paper Heart.[15]

CareerEdit

Early careerEdit

Hader's aspirations of becoming a filmmaker[13] eventually led him to drop out of college and move to Los Angeles in 1999.[5][10] His parents were supportive of his decision to move, and Hader used the money they had originally saved for his college education to cover his living expenses when he arrived in Los Angeles.[11] He found work as a production assistant (PA) while scouring the back pages of The Hollywood Reporter,[16] and he hoped to advance far enough to become an assistant director.[16] He spent much of his young adulthood "lonely and underemployed," filling large amounts of spare time with movie marathons.[16] He regularly worked 18-hour days as a PA, having little time to pursue his creative ambitions.[11] He worked as a PA on the DVD Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy; the feature films James Dean,[17] Spider-Man,[17] and Collateral Damage;[5] as well as a post-production assistant on VH1 television's The Surreal Life.[18] Hader briefly worked as a PA and stage manager on Playboy TV's Night Calls;[19][20][21] but quit, as he feared it would disappoint his parents.[14] He eventually quit being a PA altogether after a bad experience shooting The Scorpion King.[16]

Hader subsequently secured a job working as a nighttime assistant editor at post-production facility Triage Entertainment.[11][16] He invested money into his own short film, but was too embarrassed to release it. Shortly thereafter, Hader and his then-longtime girlfriend broke up.[22] Desperate for a change, he began attending comedy classes with friends at improvisational comedy enterprise the Second City in March 2003.[12] He quickly realized that comedy was the creative outlet that he had needed since he made the decision to leave higher education behind,[11] and soon Hader, his new compatriot in comedy Matt Offerman, and their two friends and fellow humor enthusiasts Eric Filipkowski and Mel Cowan, elected to form their own sketch comedy group.[23] Christening their group Animals from the Future, the four frequently appeared to small audiences at backyard shows in Van Nuys.[16] Matt's brother, actor Nick Offerman, told his wife, Megan Mullally, about the group.[24][25] Mullally, her interest piqued, wanted to see their work personally and, after attending one of the group's backyard appearances, she informed Hader of her intention to discuss him, specifically, with Lorne Michaels, creator and executive producer of Saturday Night Live (SNL). Hader, as a result of Mullally's recommendation, was asked to audition for the show, and soon flew to New York to audition for a group of SNL producers. Hader, who would later receive acclaim for his excellent impressions of others while appearing on SNL, had no impressions prepared when he was invited to audition. Despite being nervous and struggling to display his strengths during the audition, this resulted in his spontaneous imitation of an elderly Italian man he had once overheard; this impression would later become the first of Hader's many recurring characters on the show: Vinny Vedecci.[16] As a result of the audition, Hader got an agent and manager.[10] Just before he was officially invited to begin work on SNL, Hader was working as an assistant editor on Iron Chef America.[26]

Saturday Night LiveEdit

Hader was hired as a featured player and made his debut on the show on October 1, 2005. His first role was as a psychologist giving his views about life and death during the emergency landing of JetBlue Airways Flight 292. He felt he had gone from "preschool to Harvard."[22] He became the "impressions guy," hoping to fill a utility-player role "like his hero Phil Hartman".[16] Hader has said that he performed impersonations of teachers and friends when he was growing up but did not do impersonations of famous people until his Saturday Night Live audition.[27] His list of impressions includes Vincent Price in the Variety Vault sketches, Harvey Fierstein, Charlie Rose, Al Pacino, Brian Grazer, Rick Perry, John Malkovich, Seth Rogen, James Carville, Steven Van Zandt (as Silvio Dante), Julian Assange, Eliot Spitzer, Alan Alda, Clint Eastwood, and Charlie Sheen. On July 19, 2012, Hader received his first nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on SNL.[28][29] He is the first male SNL cast member to receive this nomination since Eddie Murphy in 1984.

Despite this, Hader suffered from anxiety and sleep problems during his tenure at the program.[10] He never felt "truly comfortable" throughout his first four seasons.[16] He was insecure that he had less comedy experience than his peers. He would often not sleep on Fridays before the show, and would feel light-headed prior to broadcasts.[10] He was neurotic regarding his performances; Hader called his early performances "rigid".[16] On one occasion, he began having a panic attack, live on air, while impersonating Julian Assange. It was the final episode of 2010, and Hader remembered; "It felt like someone was sitting on my chest. I couldn't breathe, I started sweating. I thought, This is not good — abort! abort!"[10] Hader is also prone to migraines, and also suffered one live on air- Jason Sudeikis had to guide him on and offstage as he couldn't see anything.[30] Michaels tried to put him at ease by remarking to him, "You can work here as long as you want," after the incident, (the show was hosted by Seth Rogen).[16]

Hader decided to leave SNL after eight seasons, informing cast and crew of his decision in February 2013. He came to the conclusion that he needed to leave when his then-wife and he were constantly having to travel to Los Angeles for work, which made it difficult for their children.[10] [11] His final episode was on May 18, 2013.[31] "It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point," he told reporters. "It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go.'"[32] On October 11, 2014, Hader returned as host with musical guest Hozier[33] and on March 17, 2018 with musical guest Arcade Fire.

Among the characters Hader played was Stefon, Weekend Update's flamboyant New York City correspondent, whose recommendations consist solely of bizarre nightclubs involving nightmarish characters. Stefon is in love with and married to Seth Meyers.[34][35] He was originally a one-shot character on a season-34 sketch where a screenwriter named David Zolesky (played by Ben Affleck) invites his estranged brother Stefon over to pitch a family-friendly sports drama about a college student who bonds with his grandfather so he can try out for the college football team.[36] He is based on two people SNL writer John Mulaney and Hader met: a wannabe club owner who always invited Mulaney to weird underground clubs and a barista Hader met who looks, speaks, and dresses like Stefon.[37]

Film rolesEdit

After his film debut You, Me and Dupree, Hader had a wide range of roles such as Katherine Heigl's character's editor at E! in Knocked Up,[38] the acid-taking mechanic Dave in Hot Rod alongside SNL castmate Andy Samberg,[39] a recumbent biker in The Brothers Solomon (which featured SNL castmate Will Forte in one of the film's co-leading roles) and, most famously, as Officer Slater in the Judd Apatow produced Superbad.[40] His role in Superbad helped boost his public awareness and allowed him to appear on mainstream programs like Total Request Live, The Tonight Show, and MTV's Video Music Awards.

 
Hader at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con

In 2008, Hader appeared in two other Apatow projects: Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Pineapple Express. He also starred alongside Ben Stiller, Robert Downey, Jr. and Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder.

He also had a small cameo as the voice of the USS Vengeance computer in 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. Hader starred in a dramatic role in the 2014 film The Skeleton Twins, opposite Kristen Wiig, with whom he worked on Saturday Night Live. The film won for 'Best Screenplay' at the Sundance Film Festival. In 2015, Hader voiced the character of Fear in the critically acclaimed Disney-Pixar film, Inside Out, and was attached to voice a dinosaur in the Pixar film The Good Dinosaur. However, Hader, alongside John Lithgow, Lucas Neff, Neil Patrick Harris and Judy Greer, left the project after their characters were re-designed.[43]

Hader had his first leading man role in the romantic-comedy opposite Amy Schumer in Trainwreck (2015) and continued in these romantic roles as a former college boyfriend to best friend of Greta Gerwig's title character in Maggie's Plan (2015). Hader voiced Alpha 5 in the 2017 film version of Power Rangers.[44]

Other workEdit

Hader has made several short films, including Back in the Day, Sounds Good to Me: Remastering the Sting, and The Jeannie Tate Show with SNL writer Liz Cackowski and then-wife Maggie Carey.

Hader has been a creative consultant and producer on South Park since the show's 12th season.[46] His involvement in the series stems from his friendship with Matt Stone; the two held a similar sense of humor and Hader began going on writers' retreats with the staff.[11] He began working on the program hoping to learn story structure.[22] Hader is among the series producers to win the 2009 Emmy Award for Best Animated Series.[18] He also appeared on the commentary recorded for the 2009 Blu-ray edition of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, and the Comedy Central special 6 Days to Air, a documentary filmed during production of the 2011 South Park episode "HumancentiPad." Hader rejoined the writing staff for South Park for its 17th season.[47] Hader won a 2008 Peabody Award in Political Satire for his participation in Saturday Night Live.[18] He has also been on the MTV show Punk'd. Hader voiced an array of different characters on the second season of the Adult Swim show Xavier: Renegade Angel.

Hader and SNL castmate Seth Meyers penned a Spider-Man one-off entitled The Short Halloween. It was illustrated by Kevin Maguire and came out May 29, 2009. It was given three and a half out of five stars by Benjamin Birdie of Comic Book Resources.[48]

Drew McWeeny of HitFix reported in December 2015 that the voice of BB-8 was supplied by Hader and Ben Schwartz, both credited as "BB-8 vocal consultants" in the film. The voice was created by Abrams manipulating their voices through a talkbox, attached to an iPad running a sound-effects app.[53] Hader also voiced multiple characters in YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading's parodies of the Star Wars original trilogy.

In 2018, Hader created and began starring in the HBO series Barry, for which he received four Primetime Emmy Award nominations as producer, writer, director, and actor. He won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in September 2018.
