Peter Dante is a French-American actor who also has experience writing and singing. In 1995, Dante got his start in television, playing a small role in an episode of "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," a light family sitcom starring the eponymous comedian, and several roles across three episodes in the talk show spoof "The Larry Sanders Show." The actor's career received a significant boost from his friendship with popular comedian and filmmaker Adam Sandler. Dante subsequently appeared in many of the ex-"Saturday Night Live" star's films, including the romantic comedy "The Wedding Singer," the underdog story "Mr. Deeds," and the gay-marriage-of-convenience comedy "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." In this time, Dante also did some behind-the-scenes work, helping to produce the 2006 stoner comedy "Grandma's Boy," a fish-out-of-water tale in which he also played a minor character named after himself. He returned to series TV very briefly with a one-off role in the blue-collar New York City sitcom "The King of Queens" in 2007. In addition to acting, Dante has performed as a musician, chiefly with his band, Rad Omen, but also occasionally in collaboration with, again, the talented Sandler.
