In the early 1990s, Huss appeared in network promos for MTV, playing odd characters, including a crooner known at the time as Ol' Two Eyes, who sang lounge-singer versions of Dr. Dre's "Dre Day", Cypress Hill's "Insane in the Brain", Pearl Jam's "Jeremy", and Onyx's hit "Slam"; a James Bond-like spy named Cobalt; a leather fetishist with an abnormal affection for goats; a flannel-wearing doofus; and an angry redneck named Reverend Tex Stoveheadbottom, who delivered fast-talking and descriptively detailed non sequitur tirades that usually included the phrase, "Go to Hell!"
Other roles include the voices of Cotton Hill and Kahn Souphanousinphone on King of the Hill and "the Wiz", a boyfriend of Elaine Benes in the episode "The Junk Mail" of Seinfeld . From his parodies of Frank Sinatra, which were featured in the films Vegas Vacation and Down Periscope , and the show Halt and Catch Fire , Huss has created a Sinatra-inspired character named Rudy Casoni.
