Born in Boston, Andy Buckley attended Stanford University to study economics but chose to pursue a career in acting and moved to New York City upon his graduation. He landed small roles on hit television series in the 1990s including Melrose Place and The West Wing. After 10 years as an occasional working actor, Buckley decided to venture into the world of financial planning in the early 2000s, taking a Financial Advisor position at Merrill Lynch in Los Angeles. Realizing he had a passion for both careers, Buckley found a way to keep one foot firmly planted in both the financial and creative worlds. In addition to maintaining his position with Merrill Lynch, he is best known for playing David Wallace on seven seasons of The Office opposite Steve Carrell. In the past few years, he's recurred as Julia Louis-Dreyfus' boyfriend, Ted Cullen, on Veep, billionaire tech investor Richard Elia on the CBS hit, Scorpion, and on the Hulu series, Casual. Additionally, he has guest appeared on Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, and Silicon Valley. His many film credits include Bridesmaids, The Other Guys, Life as We Know It, Horrible Bosses 2, and the international blockbuster Jurassic World. In his next movie, he co-stars with Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler in the highly anticipated New Line Comedy, The House.
Buckley is also active in helping to raise money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and Denver's National Jewish Health. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, who is an acting coach, and their two children.
