BIOGRAPHY

Prolific character player of TV and some films best known as the high-strung father of a suburban family that shelters an irascible alien visitor in their home on the hit sitcom "ALF" (NBC, 1986-90). With his light hair, slight build, spectacles and lined, worried-looking face, Wright seems born to play nervous accountants, as he did well in "Trick or Treat" (syndicated, 1983), the pilot for "Tales From the Darkside." As nervous station manager Karl Shub, he had to deal with the outrageous on- and off-air antics of "Buffalo Bill" (NBC, 1983-84), Dabney Coleman's churlish TV personality. On "Misfits of Science" (NBC, 1985-86), Wright was the director of an institute that studied the extraordinary powers of the teen protagonists while uneasily tolerating their amateur crime fighting activities. He demonstrated a capability for expressing a darker side as the Nazi Dr. Mengele in the acclaimed TV-movie "Playing for Time" (CBS, 1980). Wright has also appeared in small character roles in a variety of features including "All That Jazz" (1979), "Reds" (1981) and "The Shadow" (1994).
