Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Stocky, unconventionally handsome supporting player and occasional lead of stage, TV and features. Gross got his start in West Coast stage productions ranging from classics ("The Three Sisters" and "Much Ado About Nothing") to contemporary works ("Room Service" and "Le Bete"). Gross made his feature debut in the "grade Z" actioner "Exterminator 2" (1984) and garnered some attention as C. Thomas Howell's roommate in the lackluster social satire "Soul Man" (1986). This turned out to be the defining role for Gross--the funny sidekick. Other features followed including "Tequila Sunrise" (1988), playing Mel Gibson's informant cousin, "Coup De Ville" (1990), as the middle brother and "A Midnight Clear" (1992), as the Jewish soldier. While primarily a film and stage actor, Gross is best known for his work on the hit sitcom "Ellen" (ABC, 1994-95) entitled "These Friends of Mine" during its first season. As Adam, Ellen's platonic friend and roommate, Gross added a much needed male perspective to the mostly female forum.
