Biography

A boyishly handsome, brown-haired actor who has worked steadily on television since the late 1980s, David Lascher was best known to many as Vinnie, the boyfriend of "Blossom" in his 1992-1995 recurring role on the NBC sitcom. A New York native who got a taste of musical theater in his home state and relocated to Los Angeles at age sixteen to try a career on screen, Lascher starred in the failed 1988 NBC pilot "Down Delaware Road" but quickly bounced back with a regular role on Nickelodeon's ranch-set sitcom "Hey Dude" the following year. During the series' hiatus, Lascher left the Tucson soundstage and head back to New York, where he completed high school. Returning to Los Angeles, he landed a regular role on the NBC series "A Family for Joe", starring opposite fellow up and comer Juliette Lewis and legend Robert Mitchum. Though "A Family for Joe" came to an end quickly, Lascher stayed on the screen with 1991 guest shots on the ABC series "Life Goes On", "Full House" and "Roseanne", as well as 1991-1992 recurring role as a gay student on "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox).

1992 marked the beginning of Lascher's run on "Blossom", and his portrayal of the cool but kind Vinnie would win him many fans and admirers. On breaks from "Blossom" he found the time to complete featured roles in the fact-based TV movies "The Flood: Who Will Save Our Children" (NBC, 1993) and "Cries Unheard: The Donna Yaklich Story" (CBS, 1994). Lascher continued to be a consistent presence on the small screen, acting in the NBC TV-movies "Twisted Desires" and "Kidz in the Wood" in 1996, the same year the performer made his feature debut in Ridley Scott's seafaring adventure "White Squall". Though the film was largely pegged as a shirtless retread of "Dead Poet's Society", the scenes battling the titular wave of death were suitably thrilling, and Lascher did a fine job in his supporting role. A follow-up feature role as the son of American immigrant Holocaust survivors who learn their presumed-dead son is alive in the 1960s-set "A Call to Remember" (aired on Starz!/Encore in 1997 in lieu of theatrical release) proved the actor a capable dramatic player. Back on television, he essayed the role of Cher's idealistic "pseudo-stepbrother" Josh in the ABC TV series adaptation of the hit teen comedy "Clueless" from 1996-1997 and played the irresponsible uncle of the Olsen twins on their ABC sitcom "Two of a Kind" in a 1998 to 1999 recurring role. A two-episode stint on "Veronica's Closet" cast him as a young love interest for Olive (Kathy Najimy) while a regular role on "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (The WB) beginning in 1999 paired him with Melissa Joan Hart's college-bound conjurer.

Bonus Trivia

.

David Lascher on Hollywood promises: "I don't beleive a word that anybody says and I haven't from day one. I had one experience where I did this show ... a pilot. I ended up getting written off the pilot. I had become best friends with the producers and the other actors. It was shot in Vegas so when we got back to L.A. we hung out every weekend. The show got picked up and nobody ever told me I was getting written off. I just don't believe anything and I keep my guard up." -- to the online entertainment magazine The Green Room, August 6, 2001.
