Where Are They Now? The Cast and Characters of “Martin”
Another temporary cast member, Gries was only on the show from ’92-’94 as bumbling WZUP worker Shawn McDermott (you know, the lone white character on the show). They always had him talking about moving his trailer over the weekend and doing some of the most random of things. When he bounced from the show, Gries did a lot of guest roles on shows like “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Lost,” as well as a regular role on “The Pretender” and currently as Uncle Rico on the animated comedy, “Napoleon Dynamite.” And if you saw the movie, Napoleon Dynamite, then you know he also played the creepy has-been football star Uncle Rico in the feature film.
