Bruce Green plays Harold Parmalee in the 2010 version of True Grit.

He is an American character actor, best remembered as the most eccentric member of Lucky Ned Pepper's gang. Bruce's character is the first to be gunned down by Jeff Bridges in the memorable climax.

Bruce Green has also collaborated multiple times with actor-writer-producer Bob Odenkirk on stage, film, and video. Bruce's big-screen debut came in Odenkirk's The Brothers Solomon, also Kristen Wiig's first movie.

Television credits include NBC's Parks and Recreation, The CW's Supernatural, Adult Swim's Eagleheart, and ABC's The Neighbors.

Bruce began his career at Chicago's ImprovOlympic, taking direction from comedy legend Del Close. He subsequently became a member of The Second City's National Touring Company, performing in theaters, nightclubs, and college campuses across the United States.

Theater roles include the titular Friar in The People Vs. Friar Laurence: The Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet. This wildly successful co-production of The Second City and Chicago Shakespeare Theater, also starring Keegan-Michael Key of Key & Peele, went on to become the most profitable show in Chicago Shakespeare's 25-year history.
