"Talk" of Hollywood
(This is not a literal
translation but I believe
a somewhat accurate interpretation)
thanks to Cousin Nightime59 who provided us with
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 . . . .
