Barry Gordon (born December 21, 1948, in Brookline, Massachusetts) is an American film and television actor and political talk show host and producer. He was the longest-serving president of the Screen Actors Guild, from 1988 to 1995. Gordon began his professional life at age three; in his TV debut, he won second place on Ted Mack`s Amateur Hour singing Johnnie Ray`s Cry. At six, Gordon recorded Nuttin` For Christmas, still one of the top-selling Christmas recordings of all time. He was the youngest performer ever to hit the Billboard Hot 100, when that song hit #6 in 1955. As a child star, Gordon also appeared on The Jackie Gleason Show and Star Time with Benny Goodman. Barry Gordon also appeared as Chopper in Leave It to Beaver Episode 119: "Beaver`s House Guest".
When he was 13 years old, Gordon debuted on Broadway, as Nick in Herb Gardner`s A Thousand Clowns, a role that earned him a Tony nomination. He later reprised this role in the film version opposite Jason Robards and Martin Balsam, in 1965. The film gave him "introducing" billing but he had actually been in several films prrior, most notably his actual film debut in 1956`s The Girl Can`t Help It as a newspaper boy in which he uttered the classic line after seeing Jayne Mansfield, "If that`s a girl, I don`t know what my sister is." Primarily as a character actor, Gordon became a familiar face in numerous feature films and television shows. In the 1970s, Gordon appeared in the Barney Miller spin-off Fish, starring Abe Vigoda. In the last two seasons of the television series All in the Family, then known as Archie Bunker`s Place, Gordon had the recurring role of Gary Rabinowitz, Archie`s Jewish accountant. Gordon also had notable guest-starring roles on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Nava, a Ferengi businessman, and on Star Trek: Voyager as Ardon Broht, an alien publisher. More recently Gordon has appeared as the Rabbi in Larry David`s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Gordon is also a voice actor. His most notable voice roles were Donatello and Bebop in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and as Razor/Jake Clawson in SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron (1993). Gordon`s voice was also featured in other animated series, such as Jabberjaw, The Kid Superpower Hour with Shazam!, Mighty Orbots, The Snorks. Gordon also provided the voice of the Quik Bunny / NesQuik Bunny character in television commercials for Nestlé Quik/NesQuik. In his mid-thirties, Gordon returned to school; he graduated summa cum laude as a political science major from California State University, Los Angeles; and he went on to Loyola Law School, receiving his J.D. in 1991. Gordon became the longest-serving president of the Screen Actors Guild, holding the office for seven years (one year longer than either Charlton Heston or Ronald Reagan).
