Andrew McCarthy Education and Career
After he moved with his family to Bernardsville, New Jersey Andrew McCarthy attended Pingry School and the Bernards High School (public school), but only shortly. There are no details about his further education and if he maybe attended some college. His first recognition in film industry happened during 1980’s. That was a period of constant demand for “coming of age” movies and directors had a habit of choosing the same actors. Those popular actors came to be known as the “Brat Pack” actors. That expression was widely used after “The Breakfast Club” and St. Elmo’s Fire, which was one of the movies where Andrew McCarthy shined.
The role that broke him out to the public, was the role in a theatrical film called “Class” in 1983. That was followed by the movies Mannequin and Less Than Zero which was a theatrical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’s widely recognized novel. We are not sure if the response was quite good as everyone expected to be because the author of the novel didn’t like any of the cast members except Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader. Not that anyone actually listens to what the authors of the source material say, but nobody can disapprove the quality of both of the mentioned actors.
One of the most memorable roles we will all have in mind during the summer times is the role in Weekend at Bernie’s. There is no human being that didn’t watch this movie. One of those, all time movies.
Later on his worked started going downhill, without any “blockbuster” roles. He briefly returned to the theater and had some roles on popular TV Shows. Law & Order was one of them, he guest starred in a couple of episodes (he had problems with one of the main cast members so he had to be fired). In 2004, he appeared in Stephen King’s Kingdom Hospital, five episodes of the NBC TV shows Lipstick Jungle and The Spiderwick Chronicles. Andrew Mccarthy also directed several episodes of the CW television series Gossip Girl, one episode of the hit shows like White Collar and The Blacklist and a couple of episodes of the Orange is New Black. He also appeared in White Collar and critics were praising him like God or that.
Also, according to his IMDB page, Andrew has had a second career as a travel writer for popular magazines like “National Geographic Traveler”, “Afar”, “The New York Times”, “Men’s Journal”, “Wall Street Journal”, etc.
Andrew McCarthy Just Fly Away
He is now completing his newest movie called “Finding Julia”, practicing his pool skills, because he is an “almost professional” pool player, and writing books. Andrew McCarthy newest book is “Just Fly Away”. It is about an ordinary fifteen-year-old girl Lucy and her extraordinary new problems. The book itself met really mixed reviews, from people that loved it to people that say it is mediocre. Some say that the main problem is writing from a male perspective or even the bad writing. Some reviewers say that you, as a reader, cannot connect to the characters, that writing is very “basic and bland”… Maybe good old Andrew needs to stick to his movies. He is really good at it.
Andrew McCarthy Kids, Wife…
Nobody imagined before the 80’s that Andrew McCarthy, son of a broker and a newspaper worker can be a world famous actor and director. Andrew’s parents were not in the movie business, as you can see. His mother worked for a newspaper company, while his father worked as an investment and stocks broker. His love life became serious in 1999 when he married his college sweetheart almost 20 years after they broke up. In one interview he said that the only reason of contacting her after 20 years was jealousy. Somebody told him she was seen by some guy and that she was happy, so his most natural move was to call her. After that, in 2002, his sweetheart Carol Schneider gave birth to Andrew McCarthy’s first son Sam. The couple divorced in 2005.
A couple of years after that, in 2011, Andrew married Dolores Rice. They have a daughter and a two-year-old son.
