Rob Reiner's career has spanned sitcom TV, movie directing and political activism.
The eldest child of comedian Carl Reiner and singer Estelle Reiner, Rob Reiner gained fame as "Meathead," Archie Bunker's long-haired son-in-law from the '70s sitcom "All in the Family."
A self-described hippie during the '60s, Reiner later made his mark directing. Starting with the satirical "This Is Spinal Tap" (1984), followed by "Stand by Me" (1986) and "The Princess Bride" (1987), he moved on to romantic comedy with "When Harry Met Sally" (1989) and, more recently, films with a political edge —"The American President" (1995) and "Ghosts of Mississippi" (1996).
In 1987, he co-founded Castle Rock Entertainment, whose movie division was downsized significantly after its parent company, Turner Broadcasting System, merged with Time Warner nearly a decade later. He continues to develop his own projects.
Reiner also emerged as a force in California politics and child welfare and education issues.
