Judge Reinhold (born May 21 1957) is an American actor, perhaps best known for co-starring in movies such as "Beverly Hills Cop", "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", and "The Santa Clause".


Early life

Reinhold was born Edward Ernest Reinhold, Jr., in Wilmington, Delaware, the son of a trial lawyer. [ [http://www.filmreference.com/film/75/Judge-Reinhold.html Judge Reinhold Biography] from FilmReference.com] His nickname, "Judge", was given to him when he was young by his father. He was raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia, until his family moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, prior to his junior year in high school.

After his education at Mary Washington College and then the North Carolina School of the Arts, he performed at various regional theatres, including Burt Reynolds' Dinner Theater in Jupiter, Florida.


Judge Reinhold has appeared in over 75 films. Reinhold's first major film role was as high school senior Brad Hamilton in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" along with then-unknown actors, Sean Penn, Forest Whitaker, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Nicolas Cage. He later played Detective Billy Rosewood, the junior police detective sent to trail Eddie Murphy in "Beverly Hills Cop" (1984). He has reprised this role in the two sequels and in 1986, he starred in "Ruthless People".

He appeared in two widely released films, "Beverly Hills Cop III" and "The Santa Clause", in 1994. He has reprised the role of Dr. Neil Miller for the "Santa Clause" sequels as well. Reinhold appeared as himself on two episodes of the third season of "Arrested Development", headlining a fictional court TV show called "Mock Trial with J. Reinhold".

Known for his deep, mellow voice, Judge Reinhold also does the voice of Stanley in Max Lucado's 2006 animated feature "Stanley the Stinkbug Goes to Camp" from the Christian series "Hermie and Frien". This series also features the voice talents of Tim Conway and Don Knotts.

Reinhold was nominated for an Emmy for his very memorable role on "Seinfeld" in which he played the infamous "close talker", who developed an obsession with Jerry's parents. He has also been seen in Steven Spielberg's epic miniseries, "Into the West".

Judge is currently co-starring with Kevin Costner in the political satire, "Swing Vote" which opened August 1, 2008.

Reinhold has worked with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America's Smart Moves program in Santa Fe, New Mexico (as of November 2003).
