Born as Martin James Pflieger Schienle on July 30, 1982, Martin Starr is a film and television actor best known for playing the geeky Bill Haverchuck on the short-lived NBC series Freaks and Geeks. He was raised in Santa Monica, California by his parents: actress Jean St. James and Jim Schienle, a guidance counselor at West Zephyrhills Elementary.

Before he gained fame on the Judd Apatow-produced Freaks and Geeks, Starr had a small role in the 1992 film Hero. His next appearance was starring in a short comedy titled Eyeball Eddie, as well as a small role in an episode of G vs E. In 2000, he landed the part of Howie the Electronics Store Manager in Normal, Ohio. The next year, he was cast in the comedy film Robbie’s Brother, before he booked roles in Ed and Mysterious Ways. He also had a recurring role in the hit series Roswell, where he portrayed the character Monk. His next project was playing the character Theo in Undeclared, where he appeared in the episode “The Perfect Date.” Starr was then seen in Stealing Harvard, then as Applebee in Cheats. In 2003, he was cast as Shane in Band Camp, before he voiced a character in the animated series King of the Hill. This was followed by roles in 2004’s Fish Burglars, and 2005’s Kicking and Screaming.

Starr then snagged the role of Mark Rubio in the series Revelations, and he was next seen on an episode of How I Met Your Mother as Kevin. Other roles he has had include those in Last Laugh ’05 and American Storage. In 2006, he worked on an episode of Clark and Michael with Clark Duke and Michael Cera. Also that year, Starr was seen on A Midsummer Night’s Rewrite, before he joined Judd Apatow and several Freaks and Geeks co-stars once again in Knocked Up and Superbad. He continued his work in film, getting parts in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Good Dick, and The Incredible Hulk, as well as the television series Party Down.

At present, Starr is part of the cast of the HBO series Silicon Valley.
