Biography

Daniel Joseph Lauria (born April 12, 1947) is an American actor, known for playing the role of Jack Arnold in The Wonder Years.

Early Life

Lauria, an Italian-American, was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Carmela (née Luongo) and Joseph J. Lauria. He also lived in Lindenhurst, New York. He graduated from Lindenhurst Senior High School in 1965 as a varsity football player, and he briefly taught physical education at Lindenhurst High School.
