Burly comic actor Stuart Pankin attended Dickinson College and Columbia University. At 22, Pankin made his off-Broadway debut in 1968's War of the Roses. His film supporting roles are generally along the lines of the ineffectual sheriff in Arachnophobia (1990) and the blowhard giant in Beanstalk (1994). He is frequently spotlighted in buffoonish roles in such cinematic lampoons as That's Adequate, Love at Stake and Silence of the Hams. On TV, Stuart Pankin was seen as Stuf (so named because of his gargantuan eating habits) in The San Pedro Beach Bums (1977), Tuttle on the wacked-out No Soap, Radio (1982), and Jace Sampson on the 1989-90 (and last) season of Falcon Crest; he was also a reporter on the satirical Not Necessarily the News (1983), and the voice of audio-animatronic dino Earl Sinclair on Dinosaurs (1991-94).
