Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This razor-thin, eccentric comic actor struggled for several years playing "freaks, losers and perverts" before hitting the big time as the squinty-eyed, naive space alien Harry Solomon on the sitcom "3rd Rock From the Sun" (NBC, 1996-2001). Stewart got his start touring with regional theaters, then played Yogi Bear in Hanna-Barbera's Shakey Quakey Tour. Although he earned his union card, he was fired for removing the head of his costume in front of a group of children. Stewart first gained critical attention for off-center roles in the Los Angeles stage productions "Pot Mom", "Party Mix" and "Happy Times Xmas."
