So you're sitting there saying to yourself, "Adrian Zmed??? On the I.R.S. Corner Website? What Gives???"
Well, my friends, yes, it's true. By virtue of a single song on a single I.R.S. Record, T.J. Hooker's sidekick gets his own page, immortalizing him in the I.R.S. Corner. Be that as it may (whatever the heck that means) we continue now with the illustrious Mr Zmed's Biography...
Adrian Zmed was born on 4 March 1954 in Chicago Illinois. His Romanian background is responsible for his swarthy good looks. In fact, he can speak Romanian fluently. He is best known as Officer Vince Roman on the William Shatner starrer, T. J. Hooker and, after that, a stint as the host of Dance Fever (replacing the fired Deney Terrio).
But we're getting ahead of ourselves here... His big break came in 1979 when he was cast in the shortlived TV Series Flatbush. His film credits include THE OTHER WOMAN, THE FINAL TERROR, IMPROPER CONDUCT and, of course, the film that gets him a spot in the I.R.S. Records Corner, BACHELOR PARTY where Adrian played Tom Hanks' buddy Jay O'Neil. In the film he sings "Little Demon" (produced by Rick Derringer). BACHELOR PARTY also featured I.R.S. Artist and stand up comic Barry Diamond.
On stage he has been in EATING RAOUL, and played Danny Zuko in GREASE in the most recent national tour (And as one IRS Corner visitor pointed out, he played "Johnny" in the forgettable film sequel, Grease II). He is/was married to Susan Wood (an actress, whose voice can be heard on the TV series XENA). He still appears frequently as a guest star on TV and lives in the secluded LA suburb of Calabasas.
