Biography

After gaining notoriety on Broadway and in films based on various incarnations of the works of American playwright Neil Simon, actor Jonathan Silverman built up a respectable résumé in movies and on television. He essayed the role of Eugene Jerome - a character he initially played on Broadway - in Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" (1986), his first lead in a feature film. Shortly thereafter, Silverman and co-star Andrew McCarthy landed a surprise hit with the morbidly premised comedy "Weekend at Bernie's" (1989), and he later enjoyed a moderately successful run headlining the sitcom "The Single Guy" (NBC, 1995-97). A recurring theme in his career, Silverman reunited with Simon on "The Odd Couple II" (1998), alongside the original bickering buddies, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. He returned briefly to series television with the ensemble comedy "In Case of Emergency" (ABC, 2006-07), in addition to continued guest appearances on various shows combined with supporting film roles. Always affable and possessing an Everyman quality, Silverman seamlessly transitioned between Neil Simon surrogate to comedic leading man and back again throughout his busy career.
