Andy Buckley was born in Salem, Massachusetts. He graduated from Stanford University in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He later studied sketch comedy and improvisation at the Groundlings Theatre, working with comedians Melissa McCarthy and Dax Shepard.
Buckley appeared in two 1997 music videos, “I’d Rather Ride Around with You” and “What if it’s You”, by American country-music artist Reba McEntire.
Buckley played David Wallace, embattled CFO and later CEO of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, in 37 episodes of The Office from 2006 to 2013.
In addition to The Office, Buckley has appeared in television series such as The League, CSI: Miami, NYPD Blue, The West Wing, and Veep. In 2010, his bit in the film The Other Guys climaxed with a fall from an eighth-floor ledge. That year, he had another supporting role in the film Life as We Know It with Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel.
As of 2011, Buckley was cast as Captain Correlli in the children’s film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. He played Rose Byrne’s husband in the 2011 hit movie Bridesmaids, though his part was mostly cut out. He was cast as Ted Mercer, a happily married adoptive parent and plastic surgeon, in ABC Family’s The Lying Game. In 2015, he appeared in a supporting role in the science fiction adventure film Jurassic World. Buckley joined the cast of writer/director Chris Blake’s indie horror film, All Light Will End, alongside Sarah Butler, John Schuck, and Sam Jones III.
