STEVE GUTTENBERG (Philip Miller) has starred in more than 50 films including a dozen grossing more than 0 million at the U.S. box office. With leading-man looks and critically acknowledged comedic and dramatic chops, Guttenberg is one of Hollywood’s favorite actors of the last 30
years. In December 2011 Guttenberg’s contributions were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Guttenberg’s big-screen successes include four fantastically successful film series: Police Academy, Three Men and a Baby, Short Circuit and Cocoon. He has also appeared in such acclaimed dramatic hits as Barry Levinson’s Diner, Franklin Schaffner’s The Boys from Brazil and Curtis Hanson’s The Bedroom Window.
Guttenberg produced (and can also be seen in) the indie feature A Novel Romance, co-starring Shannon Elizabeth and Milena Govich. The film won best feature honors at the New York Film and Video Festival. Previously, Guttenberg starred in the independent features Fatal Rescue, a German thriller, and Cornered, in which he was cast against type as a serial killer.
Among the actor’s many notable directorial efforts is P.S., Your Cat Is Dead! the film version of the respected James Kirkpatrick play. Guttenberg also starred in, wrote and produced this adaptation.
Guttenberg’s many notable television credits include “The Day After,” the landmark post-nuclear-war thriller and second-highest-rated telefilm ever. He earned great reviews for his recurring guest appearances on the hit show “Veronica Mars” and producer Rob Thomas cast the actor again on his cult classic “Party Down,” starring Lizzy Caplan and Adam Scott.
Guttenberg’s “The Poseidon Adventure,” a three-hour Hallmark special airing on NBC, was the highest-rated TV movie in more than two years and received more enthusiastic reviews than the big-screen remake that followed it. Additionally, his two “Single Santa” Christmas specials debuted as the highest-rated productions ever for the Hallmark Channel. Guttenberg was also seen in “Miracle on Ice,” portraying the goalie on the U.S. men’s hockey team that claimed Olympic gold.

Guttenberg wishes to use the power of fame for the good of society, and a project that remains close to his heart is the “Guttenhouse” project.

Having learned the hard-earned rewards of such work, he then campaigned nationally to recruit desperately needed volunteers.
Guttenberg headed up a campaign that raised million to provide glasses for 50,000 sight-challenged youngsters whose families could not afford eye care. He also spearheaded important national campaigns for the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
