Dean Stockwell (born 5 March 1936) is an American actor. Born in North Hollywood, California, Stockwell began his acting career at age 7. Unlike many child actors, he continued to act past his teenage years, and in 1988 was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as mafia boss Tony "the Tiger" Russo in the comedy Married to the Mob. Stockwell's performance as Tony inspired Donald P. Bellisario to cast him in what would arguably become his best-known role, as Admiral Albert Calivicci ("Al") in the American TV series Quantum Leap, which aired between 1989 and 1993.
Stockwell is a golf fanatic and would play golf during breaks in filming episodes of Quantum Leap.
