Chris Kattan embodied some memorable characters on SNL, including some that were just so out there — remember Mango? — that only Kattan could have invented them. But what stamps Kattan’s impact on American culture — why he’s so memorable — is his portrayal of Bob on The Middle. The 46-year-old Kattan played Bob on the first four seasons of the hit sitcom. The video below shows 32 minutes of the best of Bob, and it’ll make you want to watch The Middle if you haven’t already succumbed.
Kattan may have a special advantage to tap into when things heat up and the pressure grows on DWTS. Growing up, Kattan spent time at a Zen Buddhist retreat outside Los Angeles, where he witnessed an emphasis on intense discipline and focus. Kattan has appeared in nearly two dozen films including his debut in A Night at the Roxbury, and also works as a voice actor (Hotel Transylvania). Kattan will dance with the great Witney Carson, who guided Alfonso Ribeiro to the Mirror Ball Trophy.
