Actor Steve Guttenberg, trained at New York's High School of the Performing Arts, Julliard and the Actors Studio, was already a professional as a teenager, making his off-Broadway debut in a revival of [[Feature~V29431~The Lion in Winter.~thelioninwinter]] In 1976 he was first seen before the cameras in the made-for-TV [[Feature~V122550~Something for Joey.~somethingforjoey]] The following year, he made his big-screen bow in [[Feature~V9186~The Chicken Chronicles,~thechickenchronicles]] and within three years was starring in his own weekly TV series, [[Feature~V5680~Billy~billyboy]] (he was subsequently top-billed in the bizarre 1982 summer-replacement weekly No Soap, Radio. After a flurry of excellent film roles--the foredoomed Barry Kohler in [[Feature~V6881~Boys from Brazil~theboysfrombrazil]] (1978), football-obsessed groom-to-be Eddie in [[Feature~V13809~Diner~diner]] (1982), etc.--Guttenberg settled into workaday parts. He seemed to have a propensity for getting involved in film series: he was seen as Michael Kellan in both 3 Men and a Baby and [[Feature~V49680~3 Men and a Little Lady,~threemenandalittlelady]] Jack Bonner in the two [[Feature~V10146~Cocoon~cocoon]] films, and Mahoney in the first four [[Feature~V38584~Police Academy~policeacademy]] entries. In 1991, Steve Guttenberg made his belated Broadway debut in [[Feature~V39035~Prelude to a Kiss.~preludetoakiss]] In the decades to follow, Guttenberg would appear in films like Home Team, Domino One, Fatal Rescue, and A Novel Romance, as well as a memorable arc on the cult hit series Veronica Mars. He would also appear on Dancing with the Stars. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
