Bronson Pinchot’s first “noticeable” acting job was in the Broadway production of POOR LITTLE LAMBS in 1982, in which he co-starred with Kevin Bacon.
His career in movies began with RISKY BUSINESS, playing Barry, one of Tom Cruises character’s friends. In 1984 he created the role of Serge in BEVERLY HILLS COP. With his outrageous accent and mannerisms, he stole every scene in which he appeared, even from Eddie Murphy. Bronson’s portrayal of Serge caught the eye of ABC producers and in 1986, he was cast in the hit sitcom PERFECT STRANGERS. For nearly 7 years, Bronson played the role of Balki Bartokous from the fictional island of Mypos and PERFECT STRANGERS eventually became the anchor show for ABC’s original TGIF Friday night lineup. In 1987, Bronson was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work as Balki.
With Bronson’s success in PERFECT STRANGERS, other roles came his way. In film he did TRUE ROMANCE, BEVERLY HILLS COP III, IT’S MY PARTY, THE FIRST WIVES CLUB and COURAGE UNDER FIRE to name a few. In 1996, Bronson joined the cast of the hit ABC sitcom STEP BY STEP as the hairdresser Jean-Luc Rieupeyroux. In 1997 he was chosen to star in the short-lived CBS science fiction comedy MEEGO. He has appeared in LOIS AND CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN, LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, HAWAII FIVE-O and in 2010 he was cast in the recurring role of George Hawthorne on THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA.
He continued to work on Broadway. He starred as The Narrator in the Broadway production of the Sondheim musical revue PUTTING IT TOGETHER, Broadway’s SLY FOX and starred in the Broadway production of ZOYA’S APARTMENT
