Early Life

Fagerbakke was born in Fontana, California, on October 4, 1957, and later lived in Rupert, Idaho, until he was a young adult. He participated in football, basketball, and track as a three-sport athlete for the Spartans at Minico High School in Rupert, where he earned his diploma in 1975.

Despite receiving numerous academic scholarships for college football, including from Pac-8 institutions, he chose to remain in his home state and enrol at the University of Idaho in Moscow. He played defensive line for the Vandals, and although he was supposed to redshirt in 1976, he was called up for the fourth game of his sophomore year. In 1976, the Vandals had their first winning season in five years, going 7-4, and in the seven games Fagerbakke started, they were 5-2. In 1977, head coach Ed Troxel intended to move Fagerbakke to the offensive line, but a knee injury suffered during spring practise ruined his athletic career and caused him to switch his attention to theatre (Troxel was sacked as a result of the Vandals’ 3-8 record in 1977, and they finished 2-9 under Jerry Davitch in 1978, with one victory being a forfeit for a “no-show” game.).

The first time Fagerbakke performed on stage was in a university production of Godspell. In 1981, after “two years of football and four years of education,” he received his bachelor’s degree and joined the fraternity Delta Tau Delta. Later, he went to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, for graduate study.


Fagerbakke has made appearances in films like Funny Farm and on television in roles like assistant coach “Dauber” Dybinski on Coach. He played Tom Cullen, a mentally challenged character, in the 1994 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand. He played Officer Karl Metzger in the HBO original series Oz in 1999. He has performed Patrick Star’s voice for the Nicktoon SpongeBob SquarePants since 1999. His Coach role was based on graduate assistant “Tuna,” a former assistant coach at Idaho.

He appeared as Steve Gustavson in the 2007 episodes “Run” and “Unexpected” of the television series Heroes. He appeared in the movie Jennifer’s Body in 2009. He also appeared in the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother as Marvin Eriksen Sr. He appeared in a cameo in the 2012 season of Weeds.

In 2022, Fagerbakke played Peter De Vilbes in a cameo appearance on Dynasty while his daughter Carson played Patty, Peter’s daughter.
