Michael Manasseri was raised on the East Coast and began his acting career in community theaters at the age of ten. A few years later, he made his Broadway debut in "Oliver," and later toured with the late Yul Brenner in "The King and I." Michael made his first big screen appearance as Charles in License to Drive (1988), which also starred Heather Graham (I), Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. The same year, Michael had a small part in a movie made for NBC called Crossing the Mob (1988) (TV). After a few short-lived sitcoms and guest appearances in shows such as "The Wonder Years" (1988), "Charles in Charge" (1984), "Wings" (1990), "Quantum Leap" (1989), and "ER" (1994), Michael took on the role for which he is currently best known: that of Wyatt Donnelly on "Weird Science" (1994). Much like his on screen counterpart, Michael was a shy, straight A student in high school. The show ended its three-year run in 1997, the same year that When Danger Follows You Home (1997) was made for the USA Network. Michael landed the lead role of Gogol, the character that the entire movie revolves around. In 1998 and 1999, Michael made a few more guest appearances in some popular shows. In 1998, he voiced the very bitter monkey "Bing" in "The Wild Thornberrys" (1998). In 1999, he had roles in episodes of "Sliders" (1995) and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997), although in the episode of "Buffy . . . " you have to know who (or, rather, what) he plays or else you could miss him because of the extensive make up. In summer 2000, Michael could be seen in a McDonald's commercial that aired during the Olympics (yes, that was him holding the fry in front of the screen to help the runner win the race). In fall 2000, Michael had a small role (literally, about eight seconds of onscreen time) in the Independent film Psycho Beach Party (2000). He later had a role on an episode of "Yes, Dear" (2000) in which he played the young Dr. Trabert and completed filming of Thank Heaven (2001).
