 Bronson Pinchot
The "Talk" of Hollywood
(This is not a literal translation but I believe
a somewhat accurate interpretation)

a translation of this article which you will find below!)

In Beverly Hills Cop, he embodied the extraordinary character of Serge with such talent, that he almost stole the whole movie away from the films star, Eddie Murphy.

It was after this success that the producers of "Larry and Balki" offered Bronson Pinchot the leading role that has succeeded in making him one of Hollywood's rising talents.

It is curious the route this Yale graduate took, considering his social background had not prepared him to attend (Yale) where rich kids make up the bulk of the student body on the famous campus.

Born in New York in 1959, Bronson Pinchot is indeed from a very poor family.  His mother is of Italian descent and his father is of Russian descent.

This father of four children had no sense of responsibility.  The hippie movement fascinated him, remembers his son.

He was drawn to the idea of the sixties and free love, the drug culture and not working.  You can imagine the result on a family of four kids.  His father disappeared in 1962 (his son did find out in 1988 that he was in an old age home.)

It was Bronson's mother who took over the raising of her young (tribe) family.

"She was wonderful" said the actor.  "Not only did she give us all the love we needed, but she also let us choose our own path in complete freedom.  When I told her I wanted to become an actor, she gave me support instead of trying to point me to a trade that was more profitable.  She loved Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde, and she would read them aloud to us when we were children.  It is to her that I owe my vocation and my success."

Bronson Pinchot made his movie debut in the movie, Risky Business with Tom Cruise.  "He told me to forget about television . . . that it would lead me nowhere" . . . advice Bronson had the wisdom not to listen to . . . .
