Alan Ruck

Alan Ruck as Captain John Harriman

Alan Ruck reprises his role of Captain John Harriman from Star Trek: Generations.

Alan Ruck started studying theater in high school and then at the University of Illinois. Later he began acting professionally in Chicago, appearing in numerous productions, including the Goodman and Wisdom Bridge Theaters.

He made his Broadway debut in Neil Simons' Biloxi Blues, as the role of Don Carney.

He is perhaps best known for his role as Cameron Frye, Ferris Bueller's hypochondriac best friend in John Hughes' Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)(he was 29 when he portrayed the 17-year-old Cameron), and as Stuart Bondek, the humorously perverted, power-hungry member of the mayor's staff on the former ABC sitcom Spin City.

Alan's earliest film role was Carl Brennan in the 1983 drama Bad Boys. He played a passenger on the ill-fated bus in the blockbuster Speed, and had a supporting role as the eccentric storm chaser Robert 'Rabbit' Nurick in the 1996 disaster film Twister.

In 2005, he played Leo Bloom in the Broadway version of The Producers, a role initiated by his Ferris Bueller co-star, Matthew Broderick.

Alan attended Parma High School in Parma, Ohio and is a graduate of the University of Ilinois. He currently lives in Rockland County, New York. He has a son, Sam, and a daughter, Emma.
