BegleyJr, Ed

Ed Begley, Jr.
 Edward James Begley, Jr. was born on September 16, 1949 in Los Angeles, California to Ed Begley Sr. (actor - Twelve Angry Men, and many other films, also appeared on many radio shows) and Amanda Huff.  Begley is very tall, standing at 6'4" (one of the tallest men I've ever danced with!)

Begley started acting, at the age of 17, on an episode of My Three Sons.  He was a member of his high school band, he attended Stella Niagara Education Park Cadet school in Lewiston, NY, and he attended Los Angeles Valley College (with Michael Richards) where he studied drama.  In the 70's he found work as a stand-up/improv comedian on the night club circuit and then worked as a cameraman.

Begley has been married twice: Ingrid Taylor ('76 - '89) with two children, then to Rachelle Carson ('00 - present) with one child.  His children are Amanda, Nick and Hayden.  He once was engaged to Mara Purl (writer) in, 1992 while he worked with her on the radio soap "Milford Haven"  but the marriage never happened.
Ed currently lives with his wife Rachelle and their daughter Hayden on a quiet street in Culver City while they build a LEED-certified Platinum house on another quiet street in Culver City, CA.

Power of Oneness Awards~ 2003 - attended/presented
Served as Environmental Affairs commissioner of Los Angeles and on the boards of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, the Environmental Research Foundation, the Coalition for Clean Air, and the American Oceans Campaign.  One of the reasons he quit the EAC of LA position was because he felt that he was destroying too many trees with all the paperwork they were producing.

ECO - member (Earth Communications Office) - entertainment industry based.

Supporter of the Campaign for Old Growth (CFOG)

Played in his high school band under the leadership of Brother Gerald Muller.

He is a strict vegetarian, grows as much of his own vegetables as possible, his home is powered solely on solar power and he drives a VW rabbit that he converted to electric power.  He rides the bus or bikes whenever it's possible for him to do so.

2003 served as Grand Marshall of the Studio City Annual Holiday Open House and Parade.

Attended tribute to Teri Garr at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 1987

Washed cars with Senator Alarcon at a fundraiser to raise awareness for environmental issues concerning car washing and the residuals washed into the drain and subsequently into the ocean.

2002 was an honorary sponsor for Rolling Laughter to benefit for WYNGS, the official chapter of the spinal cord injury association which addresses the unmet needs of people with paralysis

2002 Begley overcame a fear of heights to join John Quigley in saving a very old  tree (400 years) in Santa Clarita.  Quigley is an environmental activist who had spent 44 days in the branches.
