      Highest Rated: 93% Arachnophobia (1990)

      Birthday: Apr 8, 1946

      Birthplace: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

      Stage-trained Stuart Pankin began appearing in NYC productions of Shakespeare after receiving his undergraduate degree in 1968. He subsequently appeared in productions at the New York Shakespeare Festival and was a company member at the Vivian Beaumont in 1972. After relocating to the West Coast, Pankin began a career in TV as a supporting player on a number of short-lived series, including "The San Pedro Beach Bums" (ABC, 1977) and "No Soap, Radio" (ABC, 1982), before landing a starring berth on the HBO satirical comedy "Not Necessarily the News" (1983-88). As reporter Bob Charles, Pankin was hilarious in various skits, particularly specializing in slow burns. He also voiced Earl Sinclair, the father, on the ABC sitcom "Dinosaurs" (1991-94). Pankin made his feature film debut in "Scavenger Hunt" (1979) and followed with other comic fare ("The Hollywood Knights" 1980; "Dirt Bike Kid" 1986; "Love at Stake" 1987), mixed with the occasional prestige picture ("Fatal Attraction" 1987; "Arachnophobia" 1990).
