Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A precocious child performer, Ross Malinger appeared in numerous commercials, a handful of features, guest spots on several TV series--including a stint as a regular on the short-lived CBS sitcom "Good Advice" (1993-94)--and a TV-movie by the age of eight. He is perhaps best-known for portraying the matchmaking son of Tom Hanks in Nora Ephron's romantic comedy "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993). Other feature credits include "Kindergarten Cop" (1990), "Late for Dinner" (1991), "Bye Bye, Love" and "Sudden Death" (both 1995). Malinger was also a member of the class taught by "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher" on that WB sitcom's first season (1996-97) before segueing to romancing Claudia Salinger (Lacey Chabert) in the Fox series "Party of Five" in 1998.
