MR. WOLFE never planned on being Chatswin High’s Guidance Counselor, but when life gives you lemons, you accept the state of our economy and take whatever job you can. However, he's fully embraced his position between the hours of 12:00 and 12:45. Despite his apathy, Mr. Wolfe has a good heart. He's genuinely disappointed when he can't help a student be their best, because of the end of year reviews with the school board.
Rex Lee plays Lloyd, the engaging and extremely funny assistant to Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), on HBO's Entourage. When Lee landed the role, it was a four-episode arc. His portrayal of Lloyd was so well received that the role was expanded and he was added as a series regular. The hit show returned this summer for its eighth and final season.
In addition to receiving three SAG Award cast nominations, Lee's performance won him the 2007 and 2008 Asian Excellence Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Television and the KoreAm Achievement in Entertainment Award in 2007.
Lee has a solid background in theatre and has several independent features to his credit, including the '08 ensemble comedy Shades of Ray. He has guest starred in a number of TV shows, including Dave's World, Son of the Beach, Lucky and Andy Richter Controls the Universe, and has appeared in numerous commercials.
Born in Warren, Ohio, Lee has been a Southern California resident since age nine. He studied music and theatre at Oberlin, where he received his BA, and returned to Southern California to pursue his career as an actor.
Early in his career Lee took jobs in retail and worked at a coffee house by day while acting in local theatre at night. While co-starring in such productions as the controversial AIDS polemic, Queen of Angels, the revival of Charles Ludlam's Camille and Letters to a Student Revolutionary at East/West Players, Lee discovered how art can make lasting statements and generate debate about important issues. This experience shaped his passion for significant and controversial work.
"Reading scripts during pilot season, I thought to myself, "None of this feels right." I felt strange- either about the characters, or the writing of the script as a whole. Then I was sent the script to Suburgatory and out of all the pilot scripts I read this year, it was far and away the best pilot script I'd read. It was so smart and funny. I responded to the writing so strongly. And now I feel like I was destined to be part of this project." - Rex Lee on reading the Suburgatory script
