Bio:

Robert Reiner was born in New York City, to Estelle Reiner (née Lebost) and Emmy-Winning actor, comedian, writer, and producer Carl Reiner.

Robert as a child often looked up to his father as his inspiration and role-model. Carl Reiner was on The Dick Van Dyke Show which Carl Reiner created and also starred in. Estelle Reiner was the inspiration for Rob Reiner to become a director. Robert's mother was a singer, and Robert as a director it helped him understand how music was used in a scene, how the color on a set should be, the acting, and writing, and that was heavily influenced by his mother. Rob Reiner due to his father's success eventually knew he was going to be apart of the industry. Rob Reiner often felt pressured how he would measure up to his father's twelve Emmys and prestigious awards and honor success streak.

When Rob Reiner graduated high school, he began to express further interest in show business, his parents advised him to go to Summer Theater. Reiner got a job as an apprentice in the Buck's County Playhouse in Pennsylvania. Reiner then went to be further educated at UCLA Film School. Reiner felt he still wasn't successful even having a recurring role on one of the hit-shows in the country. It was not until he was a director he felt truly successful. Rob Reiner directed Oscar-nominated movies such as The Princess Bride, Stand By Me, and This Is Spinal Tap.

With these successful box-office movies in 1987, Robert Reiner founded his own production company called, Castle Rock Entertainment. Robert Reiner co-founded it along with Martin Shafer,Andrew Scheinman,Glenn Padnick, and Alan Horn. On Castle Rock Entertainment he went to direct several other Oscar-nominated movies, When Harry Met Sally, Misery, and A Few Good Men. Reiner often credits former co-star, Carroll O Connor in help him get into the directing business, and showing Reiner the "ropes".

Reiner also is known as a political activist, co-founding the American Foundation For Equal Rights. This group was an advisory for same-sex-marriage. Reiner has spoken at several rally's on several controversial topics, still continuing to address controversial topics after being on the hit-show, All In The Family. Reiner was also seen as an advocate on social issues such as violence and tobacco use.

Reiner has also made cameos on show like 30 Rock,The First Wives Club, Bullets Over Broadway, Primary Colors,Throw Momma From The Train, The Simpsons, Hannah Montana, and several others.
