Faustino co-founded and co-hosted a nightclub in Los Angeles named Balistyx, which is the same name as his rap album.

In 1987, he landed his big break on Married... with Children. He played Bud, the younger of the two Bundy children, in 259 episodes, from April 5, 1987, until the season finale on June 9, 1997.
Faustino said, "Basically, everything that I would do in my outside life ended up in the [Married... with Children (1987)] script, whether it was my battle with zits, or just growing up."
On Married... with Children his character's persona, "Grandmaster B", is a parody of Faustino's real attempts at becoming a rap star.

Where Are They Now:

I also heard that there's a Married... with Children animated series in the works! That could be awesome! Whoa, Bundy!
