Fun Fact about Creed Bratton! He says in the show that "Nobody steals from Creed Bratton and gets away with it. The last person to do this disappeared. His name: Creed Bratton." Really, the man that plays Creed is called William Charles Schneider, and used to be in the band The Grass Roots. One morning after partying a little too hard, he woke up in an alley with another person's I.D. in his pocket. The name on it was Creed Bratton, so he changed his name that day and went with it!
