Name: Michael Pare

Born: October 9, 1959 in Brooklyn, New York

Claim To Fame: Michael Pare is probably best known for his role as Eddie in the movie "Eddie & The Cruisers."

leukemia when Michael was about 5 years old, was French-Canadian and his mother is Irish.

Info: Michael got his start on the small screen as a regular
on the first season of the popular TV series "The Greatest
American Hero" (1981). He was one of the students.

He made his big-screen debut two years later as a rock singer in Eddie and the Cruisers and then reprising the role for a less-
successful 1989 sequel.

I have to admit I thought this guy was going to be a superstar. He had the looks and could play a tough guy role or a role that showed vulnerability. But it never came to be. Despite some big-budgeted efforts, like, "The Philadelphia Experiment" and Walter Hill's "Streets of Fire" he failed to join the ranks of big-screen action heroes.
