Biography

Known for both his film and television work, Corey Parker has been in the public eye since he landed his first commercial role at the age of four. Determined to become a professional actor, he was accepted at New York's High School of the Performing Arts at age 13. In 1980, the young actor made his stage debut at the New Dramatist Theatre's production of "Red Storm Flower". Parker later left a full scholarship at New York University in order to pursue acting professionally. He debuted in features in Michael Winner's thriller "Scream for Help" (1984) and, by age 20, the dark-haired actor had been invited to join the prestigious Actors Studio. In 1988, Parker gave a breakthrough performance as Epstein in the film adaptation of Neil Simon's "Biloxi Blues" starring Matthew Broderick. The following year he had starring turns in two college-themed comedies, the cartoonish "How I Got Into College" and a "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" take-off "Big Man on Campus". In both, Parker played variations on his signature role, an endearing nervous wreck.
