Name: Steve Guttenberg

Claim To Fame: For most people the name Steve Guttenberg conjurs up the 'Police Academy' movies.

For me I'll always remember him in the movie 'Diner'... which I think was his best role. He playedEddie the football enthusiast who insisted his fiance take a very difficult exam on the subject before he would marry.

Family Life: Denise Bixler (September 1988 - 1992) (divorced)

Info: What most people do not realize is that Steve has been the above-the-title star of six films that earned over $100,000,000 in the United States, a feat accomplished by relatively few superstars.

He has also starred in four film franchises, appearing in such sequeled smash hits as Cocoon (1985), Three Men and a Baby (1987), Police Academy (1984)and Short Circuit (1986), taking his films’ box-office grosses into the billions.

The writers of the Simpsons pay tribute to Steve in the episode "Homer the Great," where he appears as a cartoon and mentioned in the song sung by the Stonecutters ("Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do! We do!")

He helped to create Guttenhouse which is dedicated to helping the homeless.

Where Are They Now: Still acting. In fact he just appeared in a made for TV remake of 'The Poseidon Adventure.'
