Peter Billingsley wasted no time in becoming an actor, appearing in his first role at the age of two in a Geritol commercial. Billingsley continued to appear in television ads and was most recognized for the commercials he did for Hershey's chocolate syrup as Messy Marvin. He moved away from commercials and landed film roles in "If I Ever See You Again," "Honky Tonk Freeway," and "Paternity." Billingsley has yet to even come close to replicating the mainstream success of his role as Ralphie Parker in Bob Clark's "A Christmas Story," which is considered a holiday staple. Billingsley has had guest appearances on the shows "Who's the Boss?" and "The Wonder Years," and earned a Young Artist Award for his performance in "The Dirt Bike Kid." Although he still takes on acting roles in films like "Elf," "The Break-Up," and "Four Christmases," he's managed to branch out into other areas, having executive-produced "Four Christmases," "Iron Man," and "The Break-Up." His production work on the series "Dinner for Five" even earned him an Emmy nomination. Billingsley has also worked as editor on the film "Patriot Son," and directed the short film "The Sacred Fire" and the Jason Bateman comedy "Couples Retreat."
