Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Don grew up in New York City, and is of Jewish descent. His father worked as a manager of a branch of Wilson’s House of Suede, which would later become known as Wilson’s Leather. He developed a dry sense of humor thanks to his father. The family moved to California where he attended Grover Cleveland High School, and it was during this time that he developed an interest in acting, becoming part of the school’s theatre arts department.
He had the lead role in several school plays, and was also in the school’s American Football team.
One of his projects during this time was “Othello”, in which he portrayed the titular character, in one of William Shakespeare’s best-known works, telling the story of a general and his ensign during the Venetian war who goes on an elaborate scheme against the general. He also had roles in musical productions such as “Fiddler on the Roof “and “Guys and Dolls”.
Professional Acting Career
Over the years, Stark developed numerous skills that would be useful in his acting career; he was a prolific dancer, and trained in several martial arts. He also had a passion for bodybuilding, and developed a body that would also be useful in many roles.
While he didn’t gain a lot of attention during the ‘60s, he eventually started gaining more notable roles in the 1970s. In 1975 he worked on the film “Switchblade Sisters”, which tells the story of several female gang members. The film was unsuccessful, but later gained a cult following due to director Quentin Tarantino’s love of the film.
Other projects she had during this period include “Peggy Sue Got Married”, “The Couch Trip”, and “Evil Speak”. In 1987, he made an appearance in the television show “Beauty and the Beast”, in which he played an attacker who prompts the meeting of the titular characters.
He also had guest roles in “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, “Viper”, “Cory in the House”, and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”. He also worked on the film “Feds” which starred Mary Gross and Rebecca De Mornay, and follows the story of two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) hopefuls.
That 70s Show
One of Don’s best-known series began in 1998 – “That ‘70s Show” was created as a period sitcom, a subtle tribute to that decade. Some of its stars included Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, Wilmer Valderrama, Laura Prepon and Danny Masterson. He was one of the main adult cast members in the show, alongside Tommy Chong, Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp.
The show mainly focuses on a group of teenagers, their relationships, misadventures, and then events in the US that changed the era. Throughout the years, the show featured the shift in political ideologies, tackling various popular topics of the time such as the sexual revolution, the oil crisis, the Nixon presidency, and more.
Don played the role of Donna Pinciotti’s father who is known to be a bit of a slob and braggart. He is often seen walking about his house with an open bathrobe but without underwear. He is considered to be a ladies man, and often brags about his service in the National Guard. He is seen in different relationships throughout the show after his divorce from his wife.
Many of the cast members left following the seventh season, notably Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher who all wanted to pursue other projects, inevitably leading to the end of the show.
Career After That 70s Show
In the 2010s, Stark continued his consistent acting projects, working on the independent film “My Name Is Jerry” which was released straight to DVD. He also ventured into voice acting, and worked on several episodes of “Spider-Man: The Animated Series”, in which he voiced the villain Rhino. He also made an appearance in the movie “iCarly: iGo to Japan” as the characters go to Tokyo. He also had support roles in “Castle” and “Anger Management”.
In 2013, he was cast in the television series “Hit the Floor”, playing the role of the owner of a fictional professional basketball team. The show follows the story of the members of the Los Angeles Devils, mainly centering on the drama that occurs while away from the court. The show ran for four seasons before being canceled. While working on the show, Don had other projects, including the film “Hello, My Name is Doris” which starred Max Greenfield and Sally Field. He also played a drug-addicted executive in the series “There’s… Johnny!”, which aired on Hulu.
Don married Aubrey Robinson in 1980 and they have two daughters together. During his free time, he coaches a softball team that his daughters are a part of. He also does a lot of charity work, and even volunteers for the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), which is known for its focus on athleticism and Christianity. The group often holds classes and provides facilities for aspiring athletes. He uses his background in bodybuilding and martial arts to help with the organization.
