Steve Guttenberg’s work has ranged from broad comedy to suspense and drama, including number one box office hits and The AFI’s chosen 100.
Guttenberg made his acting debut in The Boys From Brazil with Laurence Olivier and Gregory Peck. From that recognition, he attracted a variety of leading roles including the film classic Diner, Police Academy, Cocoon, Short Circuit and Three Men and a Baby. His many appearances on television include Veronica Mars, Party Down, Community and Law and Order.
Steve Guttenberg is ready to play ball. When the HBO comedy Ballers returns for Season 3, the veteran actor kicks off an eight-episode arc as billionaire Wayne Hastings Jr., a Las Vegas casino, hotel and real estate magnate. “Wayne is assertive, conceited and pretentious,” Guttenberg says. “I love the guy!” His deep pockets will certainly prove captivating to Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) the Miami-based former NFL star turned money manager. Spencer and his partners at financial firm ASM—Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry) and Mr. Anderson (Richard Schiff)—will attempt to woo Wayne to invest in their new business venture. “Wayne is a potential whale, and they want to entice him,” Guttenberg says. “There will be a power game between him and Spencer—but if I told you any more, then Rob Corddry would have to kill me!”
