Early life[edit]

Buckley was born in Salem, Massachusetts, the son of Barbara J. (King) and Andrew P. Buckley.[1] He has two brothers, Fred and Bradford and a sister, Barbara (Bonnie). He attended Pine Crest School, where he graduated in 1983, and Stanford University, where he graduated in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in political science.[2] He later studied sketch comedy and improvisation at the Groundlings Theatre, working with comedians Melissa McCarthy and Dax Shepard.[3]

Other work[edit]

In addition to The Office, Buckley has appeared in television series such as CSI: Miami, NYPD Blue and The West Wing. In 2010, his supporting role opposite Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the film The Other Guys climaxed with a fall from an eighth-floor ledge.

As of 2011, Buckley was cast as Captain Correlli in the children's film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.
