biography for Bronson was released on January 17, 1985)
Bronson Pinchot, who plays
young attorney Dennis Kemper in NBC-TV's "Sara,' has a unique philosophy of
life. "Life is like a dollar bill at a post office machine. No
matter how many times it spits your offering out, you have to smooth out the
damage and try it again."
Pinchot, who recently
received rave reviews for his performance as Serge, the officious art gallery
employee in the smash-hit movie "Beverly Hills Cop," has had plenty of
practical experience putting his philosophy of life to use.
Born in Manhattan, he
moved to California with his family when he was a youngster. "My
family, two brothers and one sister, was on welfare until I was in high school,
because my father left us. I immersed myself in schoolwork in order to get
straight A's which would assure me of a college scholarship and a chance to get
out of South Pasadena."
Pinchot accepted a
scholarship to Yale (he received numerous other offers as well as awards for
academic merit) and studied painting and literature, however he became a theatre
After performances at
various college theaters, he was offered the chance to audition for an
off-Broadway play. Although he didn't get a part in that play, the casting
director later remembered him and called him in to audition for "Poor
Little Lambs," a play directed by Tony Award winner Jack Hofsiss. He
was spotted in that production by the producer / director of "Risky
Business," who hired him for the film.
After completing the movie
he returned to New York and landed a role in Woody Allen's "Broadway Danny
Rose," followed by parts in several theatrical productions. His next
major project was the ABC Motion Pictures production of "The Flamingo
Kid." Besides his role in "Beverly Hills Cop," Pinchot did
a low-budget film, "Hot Resort," and appeared in Martin Scorcese's
