Richard John Kind (born November 22, 1956) is an American actor known for his roles in the sitcoms Mad About You (as Dr. Mark Devanow) and Spin City (as Paul Thomas Lassiter). More recently, he has received recognition for his role as the voice of Bing Bong in the Pixar film, Inside Out.

Biography

Acteur américain, il est apparu dans de nombreuses séries américaines, telles que Dingue de toi, Une nounou d'enfer ou Scrubs, Stargate Atlantis et surtout Spin City. Habitué des doublages, il a souvent donné de la voix pour des personnages de dessins animés. On a ainsi pu l'entendre dans les versions originales de 1001 pattes, de The Wild et Vice Versa

Meilleur ami de George Clooney, il a logé celui-ci chez lui pendant plusieurs mois alors que Clooney n'était pas encore connu et qu'il courait les castings à Los Angeles.
Marié et père de trois enfants dont des jumeaux, il a été témoin au mariage de George Clooney, qui a eu lieu à Central Park.
Il a également fait une petite apparition dans Confessions d'un homme dangereux, premier film en tant que réalisateur de George Clooney. De plus, il est apparu en tant que lui-même dans l'un des épisodes de Unscripted, série qui montre l'envers du décor du métier d'acteur, produite et réalisée (pour 5 des 10 épisodes) par l'ex-star d’Urgences.

Toutefois, c'est sa participation aux six saisons (1996-2002) de la série à succès Spin City dans le rôle de l'attaché de presse Paul Lassiter qui le fait connaître du grand public.

Depuis, il s'est distingué dans deux énormes succès : la comédie A Serious Man, de Joel et Ethan Coen, en 2009 ; puis en prêtant sa voix à Bing-Bong l'un des protagonistes du film d'animation Vice-versa, de Pete Docter, en 2015.

Il poursuit également une brillante carrière sur scène. Il a ainsi notamment repris le rôle longtemps joué par Nathan Lane dans la célèbre comédie musicale à succès The Producers à Broadway.

Depuis 2015, il tient un rôle régulier dans la série d'Amazon, Red Oaks.

A girl named Riley is born in Minnesota, and within her mind, five personifications of her core emotions—Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear, and Anger—come to life. The emotions live in Headquarters, Riley's conscious mind, where they influence Riley's actions and memories via a control console. Her new memories are housed in colored orbs, which are sent into storage at the end of every waking period. The most important or "core" memories are housed in a hub in Headquarters and power five "islands", each of which reflects a different aspect of Riley's personality. Joy acts as the dominant emotion to keep Riley in a happy state, but she and the others do not understand Sadness's purpose, other than making Riley cry.

On November 4, 1979, Iranian activists storm the United States embassy in Tehran in retaliation for President Jimmy Carter giving the Shah asylum in the U.S. during the Iranian Revolution. More than 50 of the embassy staff are taken as hostages, but six avoid capture and hide in the home of Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor. With the escapees' situation kept secret, the U.S. State Department begins to explore options for exfiltrating them from Iran. Tony Mendez, a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency exfiltration specialist, is brought in for consultation. He criticizes the proposals, but is at a loss when asked for an alternative. While on the phone with his son, he is inspired by watching Battle for the Planet of the Apes and begins plans for creating a cover story for the escapees: that they are Canadian filmmakers who happened to be in Iran scouting exotic locations for a similar science-fiction film.

On assignment in Thailand, French television journalist Marie Lelay (Cécile de France) is shopping for souvenirs for her lover's children. She finds a stand where a mother and her daughter work; they sell gifts to Marie for a dollar. Her lover Didier (Thierry Neuvic) looks over the balcony and witnesses the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami coming into shore. It hits as Marie watches from a distance. She grabs hold of the girl and runs away from the shore but is quickly swallowed by the wave. Pulled lifeless from the water, she is resuscitated by rescuers but is left for dead. She gasps back to life after having a near-death experience in which she sees a vision of human figures inhabiting a realm of light, among them the silhouettes of the mother and daughter holding hands. Marie and Didier are soon reunited as the disaster subsides and they return to Paris. Marie's experience, however, interferes with her work performance to the point that Didier (who is also her producer) sends her on a leave of absence to write the book they've discussed, which would add to her prestige.
