Casper Van Dien

Casper Van Dien grew up in Ridgewood, N.J., on Van Dien Avenue (named after his great, great grandfather). When he and his family moved to Florida, he enrolled at the elite military college prep school Admiral Farragut Academy, where he graduated third in command. After attending Florida State University, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career and found success in both film and TV.    

Van Dien's breakthrough role was as the lead in Paul Verhoeven's cult-classic Starship Troopers for Sony/Touchstone. He was also cast in Tim Burton's critically acclaimed film Sleepy Hollow for Paramount Pictures with Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, and Christopher Walken.         

Van Dien starred as Lord of the Jungle in the Warner Bros. film Tarzan and the Lost City. He has starred in over 60 films and television projects. Some of his credits include Chasing Destiny with Lauren Graham and Christopher Lloyd, Modern Vampires with Kim Cattrall and Rod Steiger, Thrill Seekers with Catherine Bell and Martin Sheen, Personal Effects with Penelope Ann Miller, Officer Down with Sherilyn Fenn, Big Spender with Graham Green, James Dean: Live Fast Die Young with Robert Mitchum, The Curse of King Tut's Tomb for Hallmark Entertainment, and the surprise independent hit The Omega Code with his wife Catherine Oxenberg.

Catherine and Casper have worked together on several different projects including a TV series they produced and starred together in for Lifetime Television called I Married a Princess. They have formed a production company together, Holy Cow Entertainment, with a unique vision to produce socially responsible, quality family entertainment with the intention of uplifting and transforming people.

Recently, Casper starred in Ace’s N’ Eights with Ernest Borgnine, which aired on ION and is now on DVD at Blockbuster, and he just finished Mask of the Ninja for Spike TV.  He reprised his role of Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers Marauder, directed by writer and director Ed Neumeier coming out this summer.

Catherine and Casper currently live in Malibu with their five children.
