Biography: "I was born in a place (Queens, NY), went to school, ate some lunch, had some friends, we played games -- sound familiar?

I'm just like you, who's reading this, in more ways than I'm not -- but that said;

I was a music major in college, and got into acting accidentally. I was sitting at a table in a club, watching a friend of mine sing, when a woman at a table next to me turned to me and asked, 'Are you a comedian?' I quickly said, 'I do feel funny'. She laughed and gave me her card. Her name was Yvette Bickoff, and she was an agent. 'Go study some acting. I want to represent you.' That was it... So I went from being a jazz piano player, singer and composer, to acting...

As my father says, 'You never know...'" -

Quote: "Frankly, I was surprised that they were making a sequel. In those days sequels weren't quite as rampant as they are today. Of course, if something makes money they'll try to do it again. But I was happy to get the work. And as a beginning actor, you usually have very little idea of preparing for a role. It is just your natural personality coming out. I immediately knew which role they wanted me to play. The character Ted was the practical joker. Steve Miner actually just said, 'Stu, you got any good jokes?' And I think all of the jokes I told in the film were ones that I came up with at the time. Steve was great that way. He knew when to direct and when to just let the actors go." - pg. 54, Crystal Lake Memories
