Matthew Glave may be forever known as the unfortunately named Glenn Gulia, Drew Barrymore's smarmy and slimy fiancee in the Adam Sandler comedy "The Wedding Singer," but the self-taught film and TV actor has landed many other memorable roles throughout his steady career. After spending much of the early '90s in one-off television appearances, he landed a recurring role on the award-winning primetime series "Picket Fences" in 1995. He portrayed the newly-installed Deputy Bud Skeeter on the fourth and final season of the David E. Kelley drama, which focused on the weird and violent crimes that occurred with alarming regularity in the small town of Rome, Wisconsin. The following year, Glave portrayed hotshot surgeon Dr. Dale Edson on the second and third seasons of the medical drama "ER," making sporadic cameos throughout the rest of the show's long run. In 2000, he briefly appeared as an infectious disease specialist on the supernatural series "Charmed," which starred Rose McGowan, Shannon Doherty, and Alyssa Milano as three sisters possessed with magical powers, and he landed a rare big-screen role as Mark Wahlberg's brother in the heavy metal drama "Rock Star." Glave, who is married to actress Anita Barone, has since played a wayward teen's oblivious father in the short-lived 2005 sitcom "Life on a Stick" and has appeared as a ship captain in the sci-fi serial "Stargate SG-1," based on the 1994 feature film about the connection between ancient humans and time-traveling aliens.
