Although the Emmy Awards are following in the footsteps of the Oscars and going host-less in 2019, they're still keeping up one tradition: a voiceover announcer. So who's the snarky voice guiding the evening along with quips and "fun facts" about everyone on stage? That would be Thomas Lennon, a true multihyphenate who boasts credits as an actor, a screenwriter, a comedian, and an author.
Lennon's most successful and popular work is probably the Night at the Museum series of films, which he cowrote with Robert Ben Garant, his longtime writing partner. They're also credited with The Pacifier and the 2017 reboot of Baywatch. Although he's perfectly comfortable working behind the scenes, Lennon is also a veteran actor. His best-known TV role is as Lt. Jim Dangle on the Comedy Central series Reno 911!, which ran from 2003 to 2009.
