Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The cousin of the one-time teen heartthrob Scott Baio, Jimmy Baio enjoyed his own run as a youth sensation after portraying one of two New Jersey siblings on the short-lived blue-collar sitcom "Joe and Sons" (1975-1976). While delivering supporting turns in "The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training" and on the outlandish TV series "Fantasy Island" (appearing alongside Scott in the episode "Amusement Park/Rock Stars"), Baio regularly depicted the young Billy Tate on the comedy series "Soap," skewering common soap-opera plot lines that involved joining a cult and dating an unstable school teacher. Throughout the '80s, the actor guest appeared on such popular prime-time shows as "Matlock," "The Facts of Life," "Trapper John, M.D..," and "Too Close for Comfort." In 1986, he appeared as Steinberg in the mega-producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein's sole directorial effort, the raucous rock-and-roll comedy "Playing for Keeps." Baio had a brief role in the 1996 Barbra Streisand-directed romance "The Mirror Has Two Faces" before retiring from the business.
