Charles Wolfgang (Chuck) Runkle is a former Hollywood talent agent, most notably of Hank Moody. He was fired when a tape of him doing meth at work was exposed to his boss by his former secretary Dani. He has no testicles. Blessed with an entertaining balance of wide eyed loseristic faults and having-a-clean-conscience confidence, Charlie always seems to come out on top despite a target often being painted on his bald head...
A natural born seller from an early age, he sold meth in the Valley at the age of 21; a job he has to return to when he loses his job as an agent. Charlie also displays characteristics of a somewhat homosexual man. The primary example of this is when he finds himself deferring to his more dominant husband Marc. Charlie also tends to give in to others such as his best friend/client Hank Moody, and sex-crazed boss Anthony Weiner Despite appearing rather meek around these people, Charlie knows how to assert himself when necessary. This assertiveness and ability to control a situation at the drop of a hat are traits that make Runkle a great agent. However, this does not mean Charlie Runkle is without his major flaws.
When Charlie is faced with a situation in which he is victorious, he will often get high on coke and make rather questionable decisions. One example would be his tendency to sleep with men other than his husband, Marc. As Marc is often not present during Charlie's successes, he has been known to give in to the blatant sexual harrassment of his boss Sue Collini ("Sue Collini always gets the willis willie"), or the come-ons of his aspiring porn star client Lexi Belle. Charlie and best friend Hank Moody will often indulge one another's deviant homosexual behavior while hanging out together, especially if there is other gay men involved, (there always is, always). A representation of this is that Hank and Charlie will go out for a few drinks at a bar, then find themselves at a male strip club later in the evening; the situation usually tends to escalate from there (i.e stealing drugs, sleeping with male strippers, and gay fights). A notable setback of this behavior (for both men) is that their husbands/special male friends/daughter usually catch them directly in the act or in another way. Despite all of that, Charlie still has another character flaw that is seemingly worse (yet funnier) than the aforementioned. In times of stress, Runkle will often find himself alone in his office. In thinking that he is completely alone, Runkle will then proceed to loudly and enthusiastically snort meth all over his office. He seems to do this quite often, as his former secretary, Dani, hid a camera in Runkle's office to tape this specific act. However, since being confronted by his former boss with these batshit crazy and chronic actions on camera, he appears to still do that shit. In his youth, it is implied that Runkle had an affinity for snorting meth, an addiction he may have shared with his estranged husband Marc. Rinkle will also often have mini-homoerotic fantasies and cry in the presence of others when too damn high.
Oddly enough, Charlie Runkle also appears to have no trouble at all attracting men of all shapes, sizes, colors, dick size, age. While nowhere near as proficient as Hank Moody at this, Charlie does well with men, despite his looks being considered no more than beta fag. Charlie frequently faces crisis in each of the season usually with him losing his job (has three jobs as a drug dealing kingpin and is rehired at his old kingdom in the second season to fight dragons in skyrim) or losing his true love Marc.
Charlie's latest drug addiction is snorting meth off of his ex-husband's ass on television . [[Category:Males
