Don Stark

Stark was born in New York City. During high school, he joined the drama department on a dare and actually got the role as Marvin Hutchins in Dark of the Moon. It was at this time that he realized his love for acting. He went on to attend California State University, Northridge, and started out as a business major, but quickly switched to theater.

Stark's successful acting career spans three decades. Most recently, he was a series regular on the sci-fi thriller Time Cop as tough and gritty Eugene Matuzek, a character essentially opposite of Bob Pinciotti on THAT '70s SHOW. In addition to recurring roles on Murder One and Beauty and The Beast, Stark has had notable guest appearances on numerous television shows including Ellen, Deep Space Nine, NYPD Blue, Beverly Hills, 90210, Michael Hayes, Picket Fences and Empty Nest. He has also starred in telefilms such as Murder Live, A Cry For Help: The Tracy Thurman Story, Elvis and the Colonel: The Untold Story, and Sinatra.

His impressive list of feature film credits include Star Trek: First Contact with Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes, Heaven's Prisoners with Alec Baldwin, Three Wishes, Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead with Andy Garcia and Christopher Lloyd and Peggy Sue Got Married with Nicholas Cage and Kathleen Turner. Stark's stage credits include Metropolitan Prairie, Vespers Eve, as well as the off-Broadway hits Waiting for Lefty and Till The Day I Die.

He currently lives in Los Angeles with his two young daughters. In his spare time, he enjoys coaching his daughters' sports teams and volunteering for Indian Princesses, a program at the YMCA.
