After starting his career as an actor in series and a notable film role in "Teen Wolf," Jerry Levine directed for television on such popular shows as "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Monk." Born and raised in New Jersey, he made his first foray into acting in the Scott Baio sitcom "Charles in Charge," followed closely by his debut (and most memorable) feature appearance as best buddy to lycanthropic Michael J. Fox in "Teen Wolf." Subsequent supporting parts in "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Iron Eagle" led to regular roles on a couple of short-lived sitcoms, "The Bronx Zoo," about an inner-city high school, and "Going Places," about Hollywood TV writers. After smaller parts in such films as "Swimming with Sharks" and "Wag the Dog," he moved into directing for television on the sitcom about the trials and tribulations of adolescence, "Boy Meet World." He worked his way through various series including two revivals--"The Twilight Zone" and "Kojak"--and landed more substantial runs on the comedy about a young Chris Rock, "Everybody Hates Chris," and the acclaimed sitcom about life surrounding a local pub, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." He also directed a dozen episodes of the renowned series about an obsessive-compulsive detective played by Tony Shalhoub, "Monk." Levine is married to Nina Tassler, the president of CBS Entertainment.
