Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although the youngest and the last of the famous Baldwin brothers to pursue an acting career, Stephen Baldwin nonetheless made a name for himself on series such as "The Young Riders" (ABC, 1989-1992) and in films like "The Usual Suspects" (1995). After attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts for a single year, he began picking up television and film work, including a guest spot on the sitcom "Family Ties" (NBC, 1982-89) and a co-starring role in the military drama "The Beast" (1988). Baldwin's run on "The Young Riders" opened the doors to feature film efforts, including "Posse" (1993) and "8 Seconds" (1994). With his well-regarded turn as a career criminal in Bryan Singer's "The Usual Suspects," it seemed as though the young actor was poised to reach the starry heights of his older brothers, Daniel, Alec and Billy.

His portrayal of Barney Rubble in "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" (2000) marked one of Baldwin's increasingly rare by then feature film appearances, paving the way for a string of made-for-TV and direct-to-video movies, and his becoming a familiar face on the reality television...

An outspoken born-again Christian, Baldwin began to channel his energies into his ministries and political activism, as his briefly high-profile acting career took on relative footnote status.
