Charlotte Native Makes It In Hollywood As 'That Guy'

We’re going to go out on a limb and say you probably don’t recognize the name Brian Huskey. But you probably have seen him. He’s been in several movies and TV shows. Huskey's credits include Parks and Recreation, The Goldbergs, and House. He’s also well-known for a series of commercials for Sonic Drive-In.

Huskey identifies himself as being “that guy,” somebody you recognize from movies or TV, but whose name you don’t know. He also grew up in Charlotte, near Myers Park, and went to college at UNC-Greensboro. We wanted to find out more about making a living in acting being, well, “that guy.” So we reached Huskey at home in Los Angeles.
Among the many things you can definitely see Brian Huskey in is the entirely improvised-movie “A Better You” coming out this fall.
