David Wayne Spade (born July 22, 1964) is an American actor, comedian and television personality who first became famous in the 1990s as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and from 1997 until 2003 starred as Dennis Finch on Just Shoot Me!. He also starred as C.J. Barnes along with James Garner on 8 Simple Rules, and starred in Rules of Engagement from 2007-2013. Spade also did voice acting for Disney, playing the leading role in The Emperor's New Groove and reprising his role in Kronk's New Groove, the sequel.

Spade was also impersonated by Chris Kattan on the 7th  The Joe Pesci Show sketch.

FriendshipsEdit

During his six-year stint on SNL, David often collaborated with the "Bad Boys of SNL," a group including David and his best friend Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and Norm Macdonald. Many of the sketches he starred in were ones he wrote himself, and he also often wrote for/with Farley and Sandler. 

During his six years on SNL, David developed a very close relationship with castmate Chris Farley. The two would go on to star together in Tommy Boy (1995) and Black Sheep (1996). They were inseperable for several years, joking that they were "like a married couple." When David didn't attend Chris's funeral, many speculated there had been a fight. David later said that it was too emotional for him to see his good friend in a casket, which is why he declined to attend, although in later interviews he has come to terms with the passing of his good friend.

David and Adam Sandler still collaborate often, most recently in the Grown Ups movies. They have remained good friends, as David has with Chris Rock and Norm Macdonald. It is rumored that Rob Schneider had a falling out with the group, but it is possible that this is just speculation around his absence from Grown Ups 2.
