Maybe Peter Weller is more like Buckaroo Banzai:

I had read about him working on his PhD a while back.

You know the actor Avery Brooks (Hawk on Spencer for Hire in the 80's and Captain Sisko on DS9) is a tenured professor of fine arts at Rutgers.

Know of any other educated actors?

I really enjoyed the Engineering an Empire series, though I though Buckaroo, er, Peter was under used.

Jodie Foster did graduate from Yale & Brooke Shields from Princeton, so I'd put them a notch above the typical Hollywood actor.

I had seen him on the Rome: Engineering an Empire show on the History Channel. Haven't seen the series, no cable, and wasn't aware of his continued involvement. Guess he has a good presence on camera as an experienced performer as well as the academic credentials now. Glad to know he's still acting as well, the last thing I remember him in was as the captain in that TV remake of The Posiedon Adventure.

Knew about his jazz horn playing, he and Jeff Goldblum were in a combo together.

Other higher educated perfomers, off the top of of my head: Billy Connolly's wife Pamela Stephenson has a doctorate in clincial psychology, is an adjunct professor at the California Graduate Institute where she got her docorate from, and is also in private practice.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
