Robert Carradine Biography
Birthday: March 24, 1954 (Aries)
Born In: Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, United States
Robert Reed Carradine is an American actor famous for playing Lewis Skolnick in the ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ films. Hailing from a family of actors, performing was in his veins. While he was still in high school, he, his paternal half-brother late David Carradine, and two others formed a musical quartet that entertained crowds at small clubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The transition from music to acting happened almost naturally and in 1971, he made his screen debut in an episode of the western-adventure ‘Bonanza’. A year later, he worked in his first movie as a cowboy named Slim Honeycutt in the John Wayne starrer ‘The Cowboys’. Despite the film witnessing a lukewarm response at the box-office, Carradine’s performance was well-received and it helped him bag his next project, Martin Scorsese’s ‘Mean Streets’. The 1976 comedy-romance ‘The Pom Pom Girls’ marked his first outing as a male lead. He would play the protagonist in several other films before being cast in ‘The Revenge of the Nerds’ in 1984. He is also known for portraying the fathers of Lizzie McGuire and Max Keeble in his more recent projects.
