The short answer is he's doing what he's done all along: mixing a thriving voice-actor business with some live-action TV. 

People will, perhaps forever, think of Garrett as Raymond's brother Robert on "Everybody Loves Raymond," but that was actually a mere blip in his career. He's been entertaining us all for much longer than that. We just didn't see him do it. 

His first role was a big one, voicing the titular legendary wrestler on "Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling," a mid-'80s cartoon series about the professional wrestlers popular at the time. 

This is indicative of a huge chunk of Garrett's career. Indeed, he did voices on a number of big kids' cartoons of the '80s and '90s (see also "The Transformers," "Goof Troop" and "Biker Mice From Mars"). 

He peppered sitcom roles in at the same time, doing guest spots on some of the biggest shows of the era, such as "Murphy Brown" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." 

After "Raymond," he's generally carried on in the same way, though the roles have gotten quite a bit bigger.

In the last few years, for example, he's done leading roles on the Showtime dramedy "I'm Dying Up Here" and the ABC sitcom "Single Parents," while on the voice side, he's done huge box office hits such as "Finding Dory" (2016) and "Ralph Breaks the Internet" (2018).

He has another sitcom lined up as his next big project, with a place among the stacked cast of the Apple TV series "High Desert," about a recovering addict who becomes a private detective.
