Feature film work beckoned as well: he landed a role alongside Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason in 1986's "Nothing In Common," acted in the George Burns vehicle "18 Again!," and played an ill-fated bad guy in the 16th James Bond film, "License To Kill." Starke may be best remembered for a single appearance he made on NBC's "Seinfeld," in a 1995 episode titled "The Jimmy." Starke plays the title character, a cocky member of Jerry's gym who exclusively refers to himself in the third person. Seriously injuring himself before a basketball game he screams in pain, "Jimmy's down!" Starke has continued in television with regular roles in the 1998 western series "The Magnificent Seven" and as the father of a spoiled high school...

Starke has continued in television with regular roles in the 1998 western series "The Magnificent Seven" and as the father of a spoiled high school gymnast in 2009's ABC Family series "Make It or Break It." For most, Starke is recognizable from his long string of single episode appearances in many of TV's most popular hour-long dramas, including "E.R.," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," and "Boston Public."
