Franklin J. Sterns happened into acting by "accident." As a child, he wanted to sign up for an art class which was full. Instead, Franklin selected an acting class, and he soon discovered that acting was to become one of his greatest joys. The instructor, Irene Malin, was affiliated with Detroit area television and theatre and soon had Franklin appearing in various stage productions and local teleplays. As his voice changed in the 70s, he became a disk jockey and newscaster. Annually, along with co-host Grant Hudson (of CKLW-Big 8 Radio fame) he provided hilarious radio commentary from the Michigan State Fair, entertaining a 200 radio station network with humorous and sometimes bizarre broadcast antics. Franklin moved to California, and appeared as an extra in Moving Violation, Once Bitten, Best of times, LA Law, and other 1980's television and film projects. On stage, he played such notable characters as Lazar Wolf (the butcher from "Fiddler on the Roof"), Charlie Cowell (The anvil Salesman and nemesis of Harold Hill in "Music Man") and Mr. Brownlow in "Oliver!" Franklin appeared on stage with his wife and young children in a series of children's plays at Excalibur Theatre and Canyon Club, where he learned how to dance balancing a bottle on his head. Franklin was trained in Improvisation by Avery Schreiber, and was a member of the Political Satire Improv troupe "The Moving Targets," which appeared in venues across Los Angeles, Chicago, and Phoenix. Every October, Franklin dons his scary apparel, and frightens guests to tears at "Spooky House". When Franklin is not acting in front of the camera, he is co-producing funny movies for "Hundred Watt Films". One of Franklin's greatest aspirations is to play the "Body of the Week" on CSI.
