Biography

This son of noted character actor Lloyd Bochner made his film debut as the oldest son of George C Scott in "Islands in the Stream" (1976), adapted from the unfinished Hemingway novel. His chiseled good looks, thick dark hair and soulful brown eyes made him a natural to play charming cads, and Hart Bochner began honing that screen persona as the preppie nemesis to Dennis Christopher in the Oscar-nominated sleeper "Breaking Away" (1979). Along those same lines, he went on to portray Doc, the sinister and scheming medical student in the Canadian thriller "Terror Train" (1980) before "Rich and Famous" (1981), George Cukor's remake of 1943's "Old Acquaintance", allowed him to display a sexier side as the journalist lover of the slightly older Jacqueline Bisset. Unfortunately, "Supergirl" (1984) reduced him to beefcake, and his other film that year, "The Wild Life", was an unsuccessful attempt to clone "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and did nothing for his career.
