Forever etched in TV history as Steven Keaton, the public TV station manager and father to Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox) on the long-running NBC sitcom "Family Ties" (1982-89), Michael Gross is a classically-trained actor whose tall, lanky frame and salt and pepper hair have lent themselves to numerous supporting and leading roles in TV-movies and feature films. A graduate of the prestigious Yale School of Drama, Gross began his career as a member of the repertory company of the Actors Theatre of Louisville (KY). In the late 1970s, he moved to New York where he found work with Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Theatre Festival before making his Broadway debut as a drag queen in the American premiere of "Bent" (1979) opposite Richard Gere.
