Alan Thicke biography (bio):
Alan Thicke is a Canadian actor, songwriter, game show host and talk-show emcee. Thicke is best known for his role as Jason Seaver, the patriarch on the ABC television series Growing Pains. His son, Robin Thicke, is a popular musician. Alan is an avid hockey fan and player.
He graduated from Elliot Lake Secondary School in 1965 as the homecoming king. He attended the University of Western Ontario, where he worked as a disc jockey. He is a member of the Delta Upsilon international fraternity.
A clip of what appeared to be a Thicke-hosted Canadian game show from the early '70s, Face the Music, was screened when Thicke was a guest on Later with Bob Costas. In the 1980s, he hosted a Saturday morning game show called Animal Crack-Ups. Then in 1997, he also hosted a television version of the board game Pictionary. In the early 2000s, he hosted All New 3's a Crowd on Game Show Network.
Thicke was also the host of his own popular talk show in Canada during the early 1980s, called The Alan Thicke Show. The show at one point spawned a prime time spin-off entitled Prime Cuts, which consisted of edited highlights from the talk show. Based on the success of his talk show, Thicke was signed to do an American late night talk show Thicke of the Night. Although it helped launch the careers of Arsenio Hall and Louie Anderson, it was a spectacular failure against The Tonight Show.
Thicke also made a cameo appearance in a holiday Lexus commercial in the late 90s where he played various characters, including a golden retriever and a black woman. He also appeared on the American television series Hope & Gloria, which lasted 35 episodes. In 2004, Thicke hosted the Miss Universe Canada pageant. In April 2006, he hosted Celebrity Cooking Showdown on NBC which teamed celebrities with famous chefs in a cooking competition.
Thicke also had a quick cameo in the 2007 movie Alpha Dog, starring Emile Hirsch, as the father of one of the boy actors. Thicke endorsed the popular early 90s beverage, Boku. In August 2006 and 2007, Thicke made a few appearances as talk show host Rich Ginger on The Bold and the Beautiful.
