Stephen Collins

Birthday: Oct 1, 1947
Birthplace: Des Moines, Iowa, USA
American actor Stephen Collins was endowed with the sort of prep-school handsomeness that could adapt to heroics and villainy with equal aplomb. A graduate of Amherst and a veteran of the Broadway stage, Collins made his film bow in a microscopic role in All the President's Men (1976). He was seen to better advantage with a whole crop of relative newcomers in Joan Micklin Silver's low-budget Between the Lines (1977), then graduated to "A" parts in "A" pictures, such as the role of Decker in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1978). Television has always been kind to Stephen Collins: he received substantial acting assignments in the 1977 anthology Best Sellers (as David Spaulding in the "Rhineman Exchange" story arc), the 1982 Indiana Jones derivation Tales of the Gold Monkey (lead role, as Jake Cutter), the 1988 weekly Tattinger's (title role), and the 1990 middle-age-angst sitcom Working it Out (as David Stewart). Eventually he became known for his role as the family patriarch in the Christian-oriented series 7th Heaven (1996-2003). In 2012, Collins played a supporting role in The Farrelly brothers' film reboot of Three Stooges. He would continue to work on television as well, taking guest spots on shows like The Office and Devious Maids, and a recurring role on the second season of Revolution.
