Kevin Pollak Bio
Kevin Pollak has been performing stand-up comedy since the age of ten, and starred in a musical at eleven. He became a touring professional stand-up at age twenty and since 1987, when Kevin got his first part in a real movie, he has co-starred in fourteen films. His performance in “A Few Good Men” with Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, proved that he can play the straight man, so much so that he has no less than several major motion pictures scheduled for release over the next year.
“I’m frequently asked which I prefer…I prefer not to be asked!” Kevin further explains, “As a stand-up, I get to share my twisted view of life with a room full of strangers whose love and validation I truthfully, yet pathetically, crave. Also as an actor I get to fulfill a childhood dream of watching my face on a thirty foot screen. Sure, everybody else is watching Tom Cruise, but, hey, a fella can dream can’t he?” As for dreams being fulfilled…after Kevin easily made the transition from class clown to touring pro in the clubs, he quickly rose to the top of the stand-up scene in his home town of San Francisco. Then, in 1982, Kevin took second place in the San Francisco International Stand-Up Competition. In 1983, he moved to Los Angeles. “It was one year to the day,” Kevin recalls …at the same time recalling that Robin Williams had taken second place just two years prior, “It was time to see if I could bat with the big boys.”
As a stand-up, Kevin has starred in two of his own HBO stand-up Comedy specials, most recently “Kevin Pollak, Stop With The Kicking,” directed by David Steinburg and currently available on videocassette through New Line. Kevin has been a regular guest on “The Tonight Show” since 1988, “The Late Show With David Letterman,” “Arsenio Hall,” “Larry King Live,” hell, Kevin has even been on “Regis and Kathie Lee!!” Throughout the last ten years, Kevin has remained faithful to his stand-up comedy roots. However, it is Kevin’s film career that has set him apart from his peers in the stand-up comedy world.
In a short period of time Kevin has worked with some extraordinary talent. Rob Reiner calls it, “earn while you learn,” and the wealth of education he’s been privy to is impressive, says Kevin. Ron Howard directed Kevin in “Willow,” while George Lucas produced the fantasy film. With the release of “Willow” Kevin was asked to do “The Tonight Show,” and Johnny Carson enjoyed chatting with Kevin so much that he was asked to come back four or five times a year.
Kevin’s first career altering film role was in Barry Levinson’s “Avalon.” The response from the film community was immediate. Kevin’s response? “I was suddenly considered a legitimate actor, who knew?” Soon after Kevin was co-starring with Steve Martin in “L.A. Story” and Denzel Washington in “Ricochet.” The big break came with Rob Reiner’s “A Few Good Men.” Here Kevin came to the plate with the bases loaded with none other than Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, and Jack Nicholson! Kevin remembers, “I’ll never forget the day Rob asked me to do the film. It was like being called up to the majors!!”
When asked, Rob Reiner remembers, “It was a tough situation really, Kevin came to the plate with the bases loaded, and he drove one deep into the gap…all runners scored!”
Since hitting the long ball in “A Few Good Men,” Kevin has worked non-stop. He starred in “Indian Summer” with Alan Arkin, Elizabeth Perkins, Diane Lane, Bill Paxton, Matt Craven, Kimberly Williams, Julie Warner, Vincent Spano and Sam Raimi.
Other film roles include “Wayne’ World 2” with Dana Carvey and Mike Meyers, and the box-office hit “Grumpy Old Men” with Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, Ann-Margaret and Daryl Hannah, whom he gets to romance. Kevin also starred in “Clean Slate” again with Dana Carvey, Valeria Golino, and James Earl Jones. and Sharon Stone in “Casino.”
