Although he was born in Washington D.C., Casey went to Nathan Hale High School in Seattle. Sander was mainly interested in sports and was a promising athlete, so he played in the school’s baseball team from his second year. After graduating in 1973 he was accepted as a round draft pick for the California Angels, but was later released due to an unsuccessful season. He then attended Roosevelt High School together with Richard Karn, against whom he played on the football team. Since he was released from the Angels, and finished a season for the Seattle Rainiers, he decided to accept a football scholarship he was offered from the University of Puget Sound. It was while he was at college that he first started taking acting classes hoping it would improve his performance, and in order to become a sports broadcaster.
Subsequently Casey was involved in several college plays including “Waiting for Godot” but didn’t continue to pursue an acting career straight away. Sander did different jobs, such as a bartender, car dealer, shipyard hand and appeared in countless advertisements before finally getting an acting agent. He had his first serious job in print advertising, and became the “Winston man” in the advertisement for Winston cigarettes. However, his acting career took off after moving to California in the early ’80s, when he joined with “The Groundlings”, a comedy sketch troupe and school in Los Angeles. His first speaking part came in 1982, in an ABC action/adventure television program “The Fall Guy”.
Since then, Casey has built a successful career comprising over 300 performances in TV show episodes, 25 movies of the week and 18 feature films, also being a voice-over artist. His biography is indeed lengthy, and includes guest appearances on TV shows like “Malcom in the Middle”, “Dynasty”, “Punky Brewster”, “Knight Rider”,“Who’s The Boss”, etc. His best known roles are probably in “Home Improvement”, and “Grace Under Fire”, in which he was a regular cast member and won a People’s Choice Award for “Best New Comedy” in 1993. Apart from this, another essential role of his was that of Capt. Dan Gruber in the 2006 crime thriller film “16 Blocks”, in which he starred alongside Bruce Willis.
Onee of Casey’s latest acting engagements involves his recurring role in “The Big Bang Theory” TV series, as Bernadette’s father.
In his personal life, Casey is a divorced father of two children, and leads a peaceful life. As an ex-professional baseball player, he has used his popularity and athletic past to participate in sponsoring charity events, which have donated over a million dollars to cancer research.
