Actor Curtis Armstrong


Actor Curtis Armstrong joined us to talk about his new memoir, "Revenge of the Nerd: Or...the Singular Adventures of the Man Who Would Be Booger"

Risky Business. Revenge of the Nerds. Better Off Dead. Moonlighting. Supernatural. American Dad. New Girl. What do all of these movies and television shows have in common? Curtis Armstrong. A legendary comedic second banana to a litany of major stars, Armstrong is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. A classically trained actor, Armstrong began his incredible 40-year career on stage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened. But there's more to Armstrong’s story than that. Born and bred a nerd, he spent his early years between Detroit and, improbably, Geneva, Switzerland. His adolescence and early adulthood were spent primarily between the covers of a book and indulging his nerdy obsessions. It was only when he found his true calling, as an actor and unintentional nerd icon, that he found true happiness. With whip-smart, self-effacing humor, Armstrong’s memoir, Revenge of the Nerd, takes us on a most unlikely journey – one nerd's hilarious, often touching rise to the middle.
