George Wendt Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Oct 17, 1948
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

There's no mystery concerning the hometown of George Wendt. The heavyset, curly haired actor never misses a talk show opportunity to cheer on his beloved Chicago "Cubbies" or "Da Bears." After theater work in Chicago and New York and a handful of TV appearances on sitcoms like [[Feature~V64361~M*A*S*H~mash]] and Alice, Wendt inaugurated his signature role of burly, unemployed barfly Norm Peterson on TV's long-running Cheers (1983-1993); so far as it can be determined, he still hasn't paid his bar tab, which according to [[Feature~V93981~TV Guide~theguide]] totalled up to 64,218 dollars at the end of 11 seasons. He starred in the short-lived [[Feature~V155542~The George Wendt Show~georgesqui]], and continued to work steadily on both the small and big screen in a variety of projects including Spice World, Outside Providence, Teddy Bears' Picnic, and Edmond. He also reprised his iconic role of Norm on an episode of the successful Cheers spinoff Frasier. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
