In the mid-'90s, Cedric Kyles was a St. Louis insurance adjuster by day. By night, he was Cedric the Entertainer, a comedian who honed his skills in local comedy clubs, hoping to get noticed. And that's just what happened when comedian Steve Harvey caught Cedric's act and offered him a regular role on The Steve Harvey Show.

After a breakout performance in the filmed standup ensemble The Original Kings of Comedy, Cedric became a household name after his role in the 2002 smash hit Barbershop.

In Charlotte's Web, Cedric plays Golly the gander, the henpecked husband of Oprah's stuttering goose, Gussy.

"I'm going to need the checkbook," Cedric jokes when he's reunited with his "wife," Oprah, on the show.
