The moment I first knew I wanted to become an entertainer was: when I was 3 years old. People would ask me over and over what I wanted to be when I grew up, and with a sense of disgust that only a 3 year old can muster, I’d put my hands on my hips, point at the black-and-white television in the corner of the living room and say, “Well, I am an actor, so that’s what I’m going to be.” It’s not that I wanted to be one, it’s that I was one.
I first realized I could actually have a successful career in show business when: I started on soap operas and I realized the decimal point moved over one place. And then I realized that if I moved over to the west coast, I could move the decimal point over one more spot. For me, it’s always been about “business show,” not “show business.”
Playing the role of J. Peterman on “Seinfeld” was: the greatest experience I’ve had as an actor. It gave me the opportunity to create a role that was totally undefined, to make a character larger than life, but still supported by writing that made the character really interesting.
Something that most people don’t realize about competing on “Dancing With The Stars” is: how physically taxing it is. It’s nine-parts Marine boot camp and only one-part cocktail party. Proceeding to the next week only means that you get to go to a rehearsal studio the next day and start all over again with a style of dance you have never heard of. I danced a paso doble once in my life, and I will never do it again, nor have a reason to.
It might sound strange, but people would mistake me for: David Copperfield. Back in the mid-80s, he and I were indistinguishable. He looked like me, and I looked like him. I finally asked him, “Do you ever get that you… look like me?” and he said, “All the time.”
During his remarkable four-decade career in show business, John O’Hurley has seemingly done it all. From soap opera classics “Loving” and “All My Children,” to the Broadway stage, starring in “Chicago,” to presiding over the legendary TV game show “Family Feud,” to hosting the Miss America pageant and the annual Thanksgiving Day National Dog Show, and even winning the inaugural season of ABC’s “Dancing with The Stars,” O’Hurley perhaps remains best known and most beloved for his role as J. Peterman on the global TV phenomenon “Seinfeld.” An all-encompassing entertainer virtually since birth, O’Hurley somehow finds time to serve numerous charitable causes annually and work on his more than respectable golf game. He is a regular visitor to South Florida with residences on the East Coast.
