Paul Pfeiffer was my favorite character on one of my all-time favorite TV shows, The Wonder Years. Best friend and sidekick to lead Kevin Arnold, Paul evolved from a nerdy stereotype to a complex character of intelligence, resolve and loyalty.
Originally a peripheral character created to enhance the ain't-he-adorable factor of Kevin Arnold, Paul eventually developed the confidence to go his own way. Josh Saviano played the role perfectly, and then did what most child stars with lots of TV money should--but almost never--do:
He got the hell out!
Contrary to rumors, Saviano did not grow up to be Marilyn Manson. He did, however, graduate from Yale with a degree in Political Science.
After working for a few years as a paralegal in New York, Saviano graduated from law school and was admitted to the New York state bar.
I don't know any former TV stars who make public their contact information. Due to the nature of his work, I suppose Saviano must. (Careful: Your home page gets X's out when you click on the link. It's a safe link, though.)
I bet he gets slammed with questions about Winnie Cooper all the time.
Tell him The Film Geek thinks he was terrific.
