Biography

In over three decades in the entertainment industry, Steve Antin has worked alternately as an actor, director, producer, and screenwriter. The renaissance man marked the latest revival of his long career in Hollywood with the 2011 release of "Burlesque" which co-starred former teen sensation Christina Aguilera and pop music icon Cher. He co-wrote the film with Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody. As an actor, Antin appeared in three touchstones of 1980s film and television: the teen sex comedy "The Last American Virgin", the family adventure film "The Goonies", and Steven Speilberg's mind-bending anthology series for NBC, "Amazing Stories". In the 1990s, he was a favorite of indie director Jefery Levy, who cast him in a trio of films about aimles, dissatisfied Gen-Xers. He played a frustrated passenger in 1992's Douglas Coupland-esque tale of urban futility, "Drive"; a hapless screenwriter in 1993's "Inside Monkey Zetterland"; and had a smaller, supporting role in 1994's slacker-cum-celebrity dramedy "S.F.W.". In the late 1990s he abandoned acting to turn his attentions to writing, directing and producing. In 2000, Antin created "Young Americans", a short-lived spin-off of influential teen soap "Dawson's Creek". The next decade saw him collaborating with his sister Robin--the choreographer, producer and creator of the Pussycat Dolls--on a pair of Dolls-branded reality shows: 2007's "The Search for the Next Doll", and "Girlicious" in 2008.
