An engaging teen star of 1990s television sitcoms, actor and singer Joey Lawrence became a star thanks to his portrayal of the intellectually challenged, but loveable Joey Russo on the hit series "Blossom" (NBC, 1990-95). Thanks to Russo's dumb charm and catchphrase, "Whoa!," Lawrence was popular among the teenage girl population, which allowed him to branch out into other areas, including the release of his first album, appropriately titled Joey Lawrence (1993). Once "Blossom" went off the air, he parlayed his popularity into the short-lived sitcom, "Brotherly Love" (NBC/The WB, 1995-97), which showcased real-life brothers Matthew and Andrew. Following two rather forgettable television movies with his brothers, Lawrence settled into a string of mediocre made-for-television movies and feature films that did nothing but dim the light on his career. But in the new millennium, Lawrence rose up again, first appearing in a recurring role for the ambitious drama series, "American Dreams" (NBC, 2002-05). Showing off his dancing ability, he earned third place overall in the third season of the ratings juggernaut "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ), which helped rekindle interest in his celebrity. Now taking on a more adult persona, Lawrence parlayed the rediscovered attention into highly-rated television movies like "My Fake Finacé" (ABC Family, 2009- ) and the sitcom "Melissa & Joey" (ABC Family, 2010- ), proving that one can have new life in Hollywood with just a little determination.
