Jack McBrayer’s popularity skyrocketed after he showcased his exclusive flairs for acting and comedy through popular TV series Late Night with Conan O’Brien and 30 Rock. But that wasn’t enough for the vigorous actor. In 2008, he was featured in Mariah Carey's Touch My Body 's video.

He continued with major or minor roles in more than a dozen of TV productions. Some of his memorable works include in My Boys (2007), Phineas and Ferb (2009-2015), Ugly Americans (2010), Kung Fu Panda Holiday (2010) and Funny or Die Presents (2011). He lent his voice on Wander Over Yonder as a series regular from 2013 to 2016. Recently, he was seen in an episode of Mighty Magiswords (2016). 

In 2015, he played Jack Micki in a short-lived series The Jack and Triumph Show. The show aired total seven episodes on Adult Swim from February 20, 2015 till April 3, 2015. Robert Smigel played voice role of Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.

In addition to a handful of TV appearances, the actor tried his luck on the silver screen. He made his Hollywood debut from Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story in 2004. Afterward, he continued with an uncredited role in 2005 movie The Baxter. By this time the actor was thriving in television but it’s still a wonder what stopped him from grabbing major roles in Hollywood. 

The one who has always been passionate about entertaining people, Jack didn’t give up in his acting career, instead continued taking minor roles in movies. In the pursuit of establishing himself in the film industry he appeared in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), Spring Breakdown (2009), and Wreck-It Ralph (2010).

Thanks to his television hits, that made him recognizable in American show business. Later movies roles in Despicable Me (2010), Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010), Cooties (2014), and Donald Trump’s The Art of Deal: The Movie (2016) became his notable credits. His two movies Smurfs: The Lost Village and Wreck-It Ralph 2 are set to release in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
