Ed O'Neill as Al Bundy
O'Neill, a native of Youngstown, Ohio, became intrigued with acting
when he was teaching sixth grade and taking theater classes at Youngstown State
University in his spare time.
Seven years later, O'Neill decided to
pursue acting as a profession, so he moved to New York and got a job as a bus
boy. His first break came when he was understudying the lead in the Broadway
play "Knockout." True to theatrical legend, the lead left the show, the
understudy took over the role and the rest is history.
His other stage
credits include appearances off-Broadway and in regional productions of "The
Front Page," "A Street Car Named Desire" and "Of Mice and Men."
O'Neill co-starred in the Amblin Entertainment film "Little Giants," along with
Rick Moranis; starred with Nick Nolte in "Blue Chips;" and was featured in
"Wayne's World" and "Wayne's World II." He has also appeared in "Cruising,"
"Dogs of War," "Disorganized Crime," "K-9," "Sibling Rivalry" and in the title
role in "Dutch." Recently, O'Neill starred in the Tiffany Theater's production
of David Mamet's play "Lakeboat."
