This former juvenile lead has already garnered a reputation as a capable director of small, serious films with only four features to his credit (as of 1999). As a performer, Gordon was best known as the quick-witted young hero of Brian De Palma's flashy Hitchcockian thriller "Dressed to Kill" (1980). He began performing in the theater, moved on to TV-movies and miniseries and soon graduated to features. He played the young Roy Scheider/Joe Gideon/Bob Fosse in "All That Jazz" (1979); the nerd-from-Hell owner of the title car in John Carpenter's "Christine" (1983); and the high-diving son of Rodney Dangerfield in "Back to School" (1986). Gordon displayed an engaging presence in many of these roles; his long face and bright, spectacle-clad eyes radiated intelligence and enthusiasm.
