From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Danny Pintauro is an American actor who got started as a child actor on the television soap opera As the World Turns , and in the movie Cujo, and first came to prominence as a child actor on the television series Who's the Boss.
After the conclusion of that very successful series, he was less frequently cast. He took time off from professional acting to attend Stanford University. National Enquirer contacted him in 1997 to inform him that they intended to "out" him as a homosexual: he surprised many when he decided to grant them an interview commenting on his sexuality which was published in July 1997.
He has since returned to the stage in more mature roles including that of the title character in The Velocity of Gary.
