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 for eight seasons.
In addition to receiving three SAG Award cast nominations, Rex’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.
Rex has a solid background in theatre and has several independent features to his credit, including the ‘08 ensemble comedy Shades of Ray. He recently shot the comedy/drama Someone I Used to Know produced by 408 Films and has several other projects in the works.
He has guest starred on several TV shows, including Dave’s World, Son of the Beach, Lucky Twins, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, What About Brian, Zoey 101, Glee and Castle, and has appeared in numerous commercials. Most recently, Rex was a regular on the first two seasons of ABC’s comedy series Suburgatory, in which he portrayed Mr. Wolfe, the clueless guidance counselor.
Rex was born in Warren, Ohio but has been a Southern California resident since age nine. He studied music and theatre at Oberlin where he received his B.A. and returned to Southern California to pursue his career as an actor.
Early in his career, Rex 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, he discovered how art can make lasting statements and generate debate about important issues. This experience shaped his passion for significant and controversial work. Rex currently resides in Los Angeles.
