Born in 1973, Andre Gower worked steadily through the 1980s, guest starring on Night Court, Knight Rider, T. J. Hooker, and Mr. Belvedere, and starring starred in several tv series, including Mr. President (1987-88) as the son of the U.S. President (George C. Scott).

Horace (Brent Chalem), a fat kid; and Eugene (Michael Faustino), a little kid.
The Wonder Years played a school bully.
Not a lot of buddy-bonding, but lots of dreamy teenagers for the gay kids to gaze at. Only five or six homophobic slurs, a welcome relief in an era where preteens and teenagers in movies couldn't go a minute without broadcasting how much they hated gay people. No discussions of girls' breasts, no gazing in awe at a girl walking in slow motion across the schoolyard. There aren't even any lame "aren't boys horny?" jokes when they need a virgin girl to close the portal that the monsters come through.
In 1989, Andre retired from acting to go to college -- he played basketball for the University of North Carolina at Asheville. After graduation, he has worked as a sports writer and journalist, but he still occasionally appears in front of the camera.
