Occupation Actor

Mark Blankfield (born May 8, 1950) is an American comedic actor from Pasadena, Texas, who is perhaps best known as a regular cast member of the television variety series Fridays, which aired on ABC from 1980-1982.[2] Other work includes roles in Jekyll and Hyde...Together Again, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, and The Jerk, Too, a TV-movie sequel to The Jerk. He has also made appearances in television series such as Night Court, The Nutt House, The Jamie Foxx Show, Arrested Development, and Saved by the Bell.

Recurring Characters on Fridays[edit]

  • Pastor Babbitt, a highly conservative, yet very hypocritical televangelist whose sermons would always lead to admissions of being abused in his youth or indulging in the very sins and vices he's preaching against, such as homosexuality and premarital sex.
  • The Pharmacist, a jittery, drug-addled owner of "Drugs R Us" who tried to keep sane while working at his drug store (and getting high on the drugs and other assorted products, like glue and the liquid to a pregnancy kit, in his store). His catchphrases were, "I can handle it. I can handle it!" and "Take a pill!"
