The Hogan Family (1986-1991), surpassing Jason Bateman in the number of first gay crushes he elicited, and in the number of teen magazine shots featuring glimpses of his increasingly muscular physique.
But he was a busy child star before Hogan, with roles on Happy Days, Family Ties, Hunter, and Hotel, as well as a 3-year stint as Jason Avery on Knots Landing (1983-86).
Since Hogan, he's remained close friends with his tv brother Jeremy Licht. They were best men at each other's weddings.
He's muscled up.
He now goes by Dan Ponce, although that means that the Internet Movie Database mistakes him for the Dan Ponce who founded the "Straight, No Chaser" a capella group and now works for WGN in Chicago (no relation).
And he occasionally returns to his comedy roots on tv:
On the "My Urologist" episode of Scrubs as a member of the Greasers musical group who points out that Elliott is "square."
