This article is about the actor and director. For the Canadian musician, see Robb Reiner. Rob Reiner The German premiere of The Bucket List, 2008 Born Robert Norman Reiner March 6, 1947 (1947-03-06) (age 63) Bronx, New York, United States Occupation Actor, director, producer, writer, political activist Years active 1959–present Spouse Penny Marshall (1971–1981) Michele Singer (1989–present) Robert Norman "Rob" Reiner (born March 6, 1947) is an American actor, director, producer, writer, and political activist. As an actor, Reiner first came to national prominence as Archie and Edith Bunker's (played by Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton, respectively) son-in-law, Michael "Meathead" Stivic, on All in the Family. That role earned him two Emmy Awards during the 1970s. As a director, Reiner was recognized by the Directors Guild of America (DGA) with nominations for Stand by Me, When Harry Met Sally..., and A Few Good Men. He was trained at the UCLA Film School.[1] Contents 1 Early life 2 Career 3 Personal life 4 Filmography 4.1 Film 4.2 Television 5 References 6 External links // Early life Reiner was born to a Jewish family in The Bronx, New York, and is the son of Estelle Reiner (née Lebost), an actress, and Carl Reiner, a comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director.[2] As a child, Reiner lived in New Rochelle, New York, where his family lived at 48 Bonnie Meadow Road. This is similar to 148 Bonnie Meadow Road, the fictional address of the Petries on The Dick Van Dyke Show, the 1960s CBS sitcom created by his father. Also, his latest film Flipped takes place at the corner of Bonnie Meadow Lane and Renfrew Street. At the age of 13, Rob relocated with his family to the Los Angeles area, where he attended Beverly Hills High School with Richard Dreyfuss, Bonnie Franklin and Albert Brooks. He went on to enroll at the University of California, Los Angeles. He also has a sister, Sylvia Anne (Annie) Reiner (born 1957), who is a poet, playwright, and author; and a brother, Lucas Reiner (born 1962), a painter, actor, and director. Career Reiner began his career writing for the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1968 and 1969. After a short break, Reiner became famous playing Michael "Meathead" Stivic, Archie Bunker's liberal son-in-law, on Norman Lear's 1970s sitcom All in the Family, which was the most-watched television program for five years (1971–1976) in the United States. The nickname "Meathead," referring to Reiner's character Mike Stivic in All in the Family, became a pop culture reference. Indeed, Reiner has stated, "I could win the Nobel Prize and they'd write 'Meathead wins the Nobel Prize'."[3] O'Connor coined the name "Meathead" after arriving at the studio one day with a bag of ten subs from a nearby deli. In just ten minutes, O'Connor realized that Reiner had eaten four whole subs and was on his fifth. At that point O'Connor remarked, "Indeed, you are the Meathead if I ever saw one! Save some for the rest of us!" Co-star Jean Stapleton turned to Producer Norman Lear and said, "Carroll just gave Mike Stivic a name that will live in infamy!" Reiner was parodied in Butt Out, a South Park episode which revolved around the theme of smoking and anti-tobacco activism. He is portrayed as selfish, bad-tempered and obese, and never without food in his hand/mouth. This is a running joke in the episode; as he rants about the evils and health hazards of smoking, he eats more rapidly still and begins sweating and shaking, as if on the verge of a stroke or heart attack. Reiner has not commented on his 'appearance' in the episode. In a 2004 interview on A&E Biography, Reiner said that he enjoyed working with Carroll O'Connor on-screen, as well as becoming best friends and for having a second father-in-law, off-screen. Reiner was a loyal friend to him until O'Connor's death on June 21, 2001. At the time, he, alongside Sally Struthers and Danielle Brisebois, attended O'Connor's funeral.[citation needed] Rob Reiner at the 1988 Emmy Awards From the 1980s to present day, Reiner has been known as a director of successful Hollywood films. Some of these films—The Princess Bride, Stand By Me, and This Is Spinal Tap— have achieved cult status. Reiner has stated that the film which will go down as his masterpiece is Stand by Me. The film is also his favorite film of his own work. He often collaborates with film editor Robert Leighton, whom he also shares with fellow director-thespian Christopher Guest as their go-to editor. Reiner has gone on to direct other critically and commercially successful films with his own company, Castle Rock Entertainment, such as When Harry Met Sally..., Misery, and his most commercially successful work A Few Good Men.[4] Reiner's latest film, The Bucket List, was released in December 2007 and starred Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two terminally ill men who escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of tasks to accomplish before they die. Although the film was popular with audiences, film critic Roger Ebert, a thyroid cancer sufferer, was especially off-put by treatment of the disease in the film: "'The Bucket List' thinks dying of cancer is a laugh riot followed by a dime-store epiphany."[5] Reiner has made cameos in a number of movies, including Throw Momma from the Train, Sleepless in Seattle, Bullets Over Broadway, The First Wives Club, Primary Colors, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, and 30 Rock. Reiner's upcoming film, Flipped, is scheduled for release in 2010.[6]It was released September, 2010. Personal life Rob Reiner speaking at a Howard Dean rally on Oct. 29, 2003 Rob Reiner is the son of Carl Reiner and Estelle Reiner. He was married to actress-director Penny Marshall from 1971 to 1981 and adopted Marshall's daughter from a previous marriage, actress Tracy Reiner. Reiner and Marshall divorced in 1981. Reiner married photographer Michele Singer in 1989. They have three children. In 1997, Reiner and wife Michele founded the "I Am Your Child Foundation," now "Parents' Action for Children," a non-profit organization promoting early childhood development by producing and distributing celebrity-hosted educational videos for parents. Reiner has devoted considerable time and energy to liberal activism in recent years. Reiner is a co-founder of the American Foundation for Equal Rights which initiated the defense team against California's passing of prop 8 which banned same sex marriage in the state.[7] In 1998, Reiner chaired the campaign to pass Prop 10, the California Children and Families Initiative, which created First 5 California, a program of early childhood development services, funded by a tax on tobacco products. He served as the first chairman of First 5 California, from 1999 to 2006. Reiner came under criticism for campaigning for a ballot measure (Prop 82) to fund state-run preschools while still chair of the First Five Commission, causing him to resign from his position on March 29, 2006. An audit was conducted, and it concluded that the state commission did not violate state law and that it had clear legal authority to conduct its public advertising campaigns related to preschool. In the end, Prop 82 failed to win approval, garnering only 39.1% support. Reiner was mentioned as a possible candidate to run against California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006 but decided not to run for personal reasons. He campaigned extensively for Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore in 2000, and he campaigned in Iowa for Democratic Presidential candidate Howard Dean just before the 2004 Iowa caucuses. He endorsed Hillary Clinton for president for the 2008 election cycle. Reiner is a member of the Social Responsibility Task Force, an organization advocating moderation where social issues (such as violence and tobacco use) and the entertainment industry meet. Reiner is also active in environmental issues, and he successfully led the effort to establish California's Ahmanson Ranch as a state park and wildlife refuge rather than as a commercial real estate development. He introduced Spinal Tap at the London Live Earth concert in July 2007.
