Whatever Happened To Nerdy Greg Wuliger From 'Everybody Hates Chris'?

Whatever Happened To Nerdy Greg Wuliger From 'Everybody Hates Chris'?

Everybody Hates Chris is one of the most underrated American sitcoms of recent years. The show was cancelled back in 2009, but it's remembered fondly by fans of titular comedian Chris Rock and general sitcom enthusiasts alike.

For many, the breakout star of the show was Vincent Martella, who starred as the young Chris' best friend (and the only person at high school who doesn't bully him) - the endearingly nerdy Greg Wuliger.

Despite the success of other actors who made their names in the show, however, Vincent has barely been seen on television since.

He provided the voice for Phineas Flynn in the long-running animated show Phineas and Ferb - as well as for the related video games, and a few Final Fantasy games as well - but his face has been almost completely absent from our screens.

However, images shared from his social media pages recently have proved that he's alive and well - and still getting work, thankfully. Vincent is still acting, largely in voice roles, and has even made brief appearances as secondary characters on shows such as The Walking Dead.

He's an avid Instagrammer, with just over 94,000 followers, and has completed a degree in business via the University of Florida.

And, of course, he's changed plenty since he portrayed the teenage Greg alongside Chris Rock. Still only 25 years old, he has gone from the gawkiest of gawky teens to, well, quite the cool kid. Nice work, mate.

While shows like Arrested Development, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation have garnered justified critical acclaim, there hasn't been quite as much love for Chris Rock's comedy-memoir - probably because, unlike the others above, it isn't really edgy at all.

Instead, it's a superbly observed, well-meaning and occasionally political show about the life of one black teenager in New York in the 1980s as he tries to deal with a wider white society, seen through his high school.

The show has provided some of its stars with a major break into showbiz. Tyler James Williams, who played the young Chris Rock, has found himself roles in hits such as Dear White People, The Walking Dead and Criminal Minds while Tequan Richmond, who played his brother Drew, has landed roles in General Hospital and All Night.
