Chris Parnell has carved quite a niche for himself as the go-to guy of oddball characters. He played a dizzying variety of unforgettable characters during his lengthy run on Saturday Night Live from 1998-2006 and has been stealing scenes in movies like Anchorman, Hot Rod and Dewey Cox ever since.
Reelz.com sat down with Parnell to discuss his latest role as Harold Melvin in The Grand. Perhaps the most memorable part amongst a plethora of great roles in Zak Penn's improv comedy, Melvin is a number-crunching social reject suffering from Asperger's Syndrome.
Like all of his characters, Parnell went the extra mile researching and preparing for his role, from becoming a better poker player to learning what goes on inside the head of a person suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Check out our full exclusive interview with Chris Parnell.
