American actor from a noted family, the son of Lloyd Bridges and brother of eight-year-younger Jeff Bridges. Growing up in a family of actors, he had a few bit parts as a child, but was more interested in basketball. Too short at 5'9" for pro ball, he was diverted back to film. His debut film in 1967 was "The Incident,."

Bridges began to emerge as an all-American type of Hollywood lead in the '60s due to such films as "Force of Evil," 1948, "The Red Pony," 1949, "Greased Lightening," 1977 and "Norma Rae," 1979. He also built up directing credits. On 8/04/1998, his new TV series made a debut, "Maximum Bob." In spite of a small cadre of fans who found it hilarious, it quickly went the way of the rating wars.

As the father of five athletic kids, Beau continued his love of sports with coaching little league soccer games. For a while, he considered a career in coaching. He was married to Juli Landifield from 1964 to 1983 and they had two boys, Casey, adopted and black, and five years later, Jordan. He married Wendy Peerce in 1984 and they had another two sons and a daughter, living in a four-bedroom home in the San Fernando Valley, CA. From patriarch Lloyd and his wife Dorothy, the whole clan is family oriented, with a total of ten grandkids.
