Biography

American actor seen as young Jonathan on the TV sitcom "Who's The Boss?"

Danny Pintauro is the only child of John and Margaret ("Peggy") Pintauro. He was named the bicentennial baby and his birth certificate was placed in Milltown's bicentennial time capsule. He began modeling at two and a half and had his first television series job at three and a half on "As the World Turns" - a stint which lasted five years. In August 1983, Dan appeared in his first full-length movie, "Cujo," based on a Stephen King story. He was just 14 when he had his first experience with a "stalker" fan. A man charged with writing harassing letters to Danny committed suicide in 1990.

He played Jonathan, the sweet young son in "Who's The Boss?" from 1984-93. The show became popular among gay viewers, with its hunky Tony Danza and his co-star Judith Light, who is widely known for her AIDS and gay rights activism. Pintauro officially came out as gay in July 1997. In January 1986, Pintauro was nominated for Best Supporting Actor In a Series for his part in "Who's The Boss?" He appeared in several movies while he was doing the television series. In 1992, as the show ended, he won a Youth in Film Award for an "Exceptional Performance by a Young Actor in a Long Running Series."

Pintauro is an Eagle Scout who majored in drama at Stanford University, where he also played trumpet in the marching band, and graduated on 6/14/1998. He has three dogs and had said he would like to be a veterinarian. He returned to the East Coast, however, to study theater and continue his acting career. He had several projects in the works in 1999 and 2000, including a one-man show called "The Velocity of Gary" about a teen gay hustler.
