who's full name is Abraham Rubin Hercules Benrubi, was born in Indianpolis,
Indiana had a fairly normal childhood. Standing at 6 foot 7 iches
tall (now), you might think that he grew up being a bully. Not true
at all, although he was tempted a few times. His father, Asher (or
"Smash" as he's known) works for KLOU

Abe got a break. A low budget film was coming to town called "Diving

Soon after, the pull of Hollywood was too great and he moved to

because six months later he was cast for a new TV series called
"Parker Lewis Can't Lose", and he's been working ever since.
what does he do now?? Well, when he's not off on location shooting
a movie, he still feeds his comic book addiction. Every wednesday
he gets his fix. He also has quite a collection of CDs (see photo).
By his own estimates, his collection has topped the 8,000 mark (yes,
