  • Trained at the Hagen-Bergdorf studio, actor Daniel Stern hopscotched between stage and films during his first professional years, appearing on Broadway in Sam Shepard's True West and making his movie debut as Cyril in Breaking Away (1979). Biding his time with bits in such films as Stardust Memories (1980) and One Trick Pony (1980), Stern enjoyed a career breakthrough in the role of obsessive record collector Shrevie in Barry Levinson's Diner (1982). While he has been seen in a number of major roles since then, Stern is most fondly remembered for his portrayal of Marv, the Larry Fine-like burglar in the two Home Alone flicks of the early 1990s, and as cowboy wannabe Phil Berquist in Billy Crystal's City Slickers films. Stern's TV contributions include the role of Joey Nathan on the shortliver 1985 weekly Hometown, and a longer stint as the adult Kevin Arnold, the never-seen narrator of The Wonder Years (1989-92). Having previously directed several Wonder Years installments, Daniel Stern made his feature-film directorial bow with the 1993 baseball fantasy Rookie of the Year, and in 1995 functioned as both star and producer of the theatrical feature Tenderfoot. He went on to appear in Celtic Pride, the TV series Regular Joe, A Previous Engagement, and he played Drew Barrymore's father in her directorial debut Whip It.
