George was born in Great Neck, NY on Feb. 13, 1934 and began his career not as an actor but as a musician, playing the banjo (which he brings still does on occasion) for Bruno Lynch and the Impressive Jazz Band. By 1961, however, he was a film actor, and acheived notoriety for playing David in Ship of Fools in 1965, followed by an Oscar nomination the next year for playing Nick in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? His career continued to thrive in such later films as The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, No Way to Treat a Lady, The Owl and the Pussycat and A Touch of Class. In the '80s, he did many TV movies and series, as well as appearing as Albert in two of the Look Who's Talking films. In the '90s he did many films such as For the Boys, Flirting with Disaster, The Cable Guy, and The Mirror Has Two Faces. He's now getting raves (as well as Emmy and Golden Globe nominations) for his portrayal of Jack Gallo on JUST SHOOT ME.
Enrico was born on Feb. 14 in Toronto, Canada. He began his acting career in college, taking theatre as an elective course, then moving on to the Yale School of Drama. His teacher encouraged him to take it up as a career, so he found himself in New York City studying at the American Academy for Dramatic Arts. He went on to receive many prestigious awards, appearing in "Hamlet," "The Merry Wives of Windsor," "Arabian Nights" and "Dracula." He went on to film (Money Train, Albino Alligator, Galaxy Quest) and TV (HOPE & GLORIA, LAW & ORDER). He now continues to wow audiences with his performance as Elliott DiMauro on JUST SHOOT ME.
Wendie was born on Dec. 15, 1950 in Brooklyn, NY, and began acting after working for former congressman Jack Kemp. Like her JSM character, Nina Van Horn, she is a former model. For several years, she played Judith Tupper Stone on the HBO comedy DREAM ON, which won her 4 CableACE Awards. She also had guest or recurring roles on SEINFELD, MAD ABOUT YOU, CYBILL, BAYWATCH and L.A. LAW. She has appeared onstage in such plays as "Guys and Dolls" and "Round Trip," for which she won the Artistic Director's Award. Her award-winning days probably aren't over (in fact she has been nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe) with her current role on JUST SHOOT ME.
David was born on July 22, 1964 in Birmingham, MI and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. He's been doing stand-up for over 8 years now and landed a role on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE in 1990 where his Michael J. Fox impersonations and Hollywood Minute sketches made a big splash. His Dick Clark receptionist sketches also got huge laughs. He left SNL in 1996 (his final season doing hilarious commentary in the "Spade in America" segment), after having starring in two successful films with the late Chris Farley: Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. He also had parts in P.C.U., Coneheads, Senseless and Lost and Found which he wrote. His Emmy-, Golden Globe- and American Comedy Award-nominated work as Dennis Finch on JUST SHOOT ME may be considered some of his best yet.
