Acteur

Biographie

Arthur "Art" Metrano is an American actor and comedian, born in Brooklyn, New York City. Metrano may be best known for his role as Lt./Capt./Cmdt. Mauser in Police Academy 2 and Police Academy 3.
Metrano's first film role was as a truck driver in the 1961 Cold War thriller Rocket Attack U.S.A.. Among Metrano's TV guest appearances was a 1968 episode of Ironside.
However, he is better known for his frequent appearances on talk and variety shows in the early 1970s, especially The Tonight Show, as a "magician" performing absurd tricks, such as making his fingers "jump" from one hand to another, while constantly humming an inane theme song – "Fine and Dandy," an early 1930s composition by Kay Swift.
In December 2007, Metrano filed a lawsuit against the creator, producers and studio behind the television show Family Guy, asserting copyright infringement, and asking for damages in excess of two million dollars. The case was settled out of court in 2010 with undisclosed terms.
Metrano seriously injured his spinal cord and is disabled resulting from a fall at home in 1989. Currently, he tours with his one-man show, "Jews Don't Belong On Ladders...An Accidental Comedy," which has raised more than $75,000 for Project Support for Spinal Cord Injury, to help buy crutches, wheelchairs, and supplies for handicapped people.
